Depends...

This depends on state and locality, but honestly, I'd call them and ask them what's going on, if it's worth it to you to do so. If you left under good conditions (that is, you left at the end of the lease, and didn't just leave and skip rent or anything), they shouldn't have a reason to do so.

Otherwise, it likely wouldn't hurt to file a dispute and see what happens. Did you owe them money when you left? It may be a case where they decided to charge you for, say, repainting or replacing a carpet after you left, but they couldn't get hold of you for some reason.

--

Either way, I'd contact them and ask what's going on, but only if it's worth the time, since any eviction (w/o debt owed) from 5 years ago wouldn't show up in your rental history when you want to move to a new apartment or other rental (those usually only go back for 3 years).
