Anonymous medical bill on credit report legal?
I have had a medical bill from 2012 just put on my credit report but they say they have no information as to who put it on there or why. How am I even supposed to verify it's legitimacy?

Contact the credit bureau(s) showing the account and ask for the info on it. Transunion, Equifax and Experian. You may want to get your hard reports from annual credit report to see what it posted on them regarding the account. As far as if it is legal or not, probably not, but this is information that you can obtain with a credit bureau, so I am not sure that you would have any legal footing. You could contact an FDCPA (fair debt collection practices act) law firm for a consult. Many of them offer free consults.
