Dispute them all.

Go to any of the 3 credit reporting agencies websites. There you'll find a place to file a dispute. Click on it and follow the instructions. 

Often there are multiple reports because the account is sold over and over. But only one has the legal right to collect it. You may not get out of paying it but you figure out who it is you need to pay. 

Do some looking around on the atricles and blogs on CK on what to do once you have the right creditor to deal with. 

Good luck
