Can a collections account be listed twice on my credit report from same company?
A collections account was opened by company "A" 11/25/2014 last reported 03/2015 but then they have another file same account different dates that they closed. It shows the same company but they are changing the way their name shows on credit report, 3 initials or whole name as one word and other time their name is full with spaces. it shows different each time with transunion. I understand this is their way of keeping it on the report but are they allowed to do that.

If both collection accounts are for the same delinquent original account then this is NOT allowed. You will want to dispute the older collection account OR you could contact a consumer law attorney that handles FDCPA cases. FDCPA stands for "fair debt collection practices act" read up on that.
