Have a bill showing in collections but was paid off
I had a bill years ago with T mobile, the account without me knowing went into collections and was sold to a company to try to collect. This company then sold the account again to another company which I settled with and agreed/paid the terms. On my credit report it shows that it was paid and am in good standing but also still shows as being in collections and not scheduled to come off of my credit report until 2018. How can I have this removed sooner than the 2018 date because someone has already been paid and collected on the account?
