Collections Accounts on Transunion Vs. Equifax are Different
I have paid off all my collections. Why are they showing closed on my Equifax credit report, but still showing open on my Transunion credit report? How do resolve these discrepancies?

Sometimes it may take a month to update. If it hasn't updated in a month, then contact Transunion and let them now or if you are inpatient, contact them now. Transunion, Equifax and Experian all have websites with contact info. Since you didn't get a "pay for delete agreement" when paying your collections, do some reading about GOODWILL LETTERS.

On second thought, dispute the incorrect account right now with Transunion and you may get lucky. They may just delete the account rather than correct it, but that would be a long shot.
