Collection Agencies Randomly add accounts?
Just last week I disputed a collection account that was showing up on my Equifax report from Verizon (Midland). Equifax decided in my favor and deleted the account from my report. Not more than 3 days later I get a notification from Credit Karma that this same account has just been added to my TRW and it has gone to collections. Hence my TRW score just dropped 13 points.

Talk about sore losers!!

You can dispute again, against this new collection account. They need to prove it is valid. If they harass you over it, ask them to provide written proof of the debt, keep detailed records of their contact and prepare to sue.
