The first thing to do (and you should do this once a year to make sure all data is correct) is go to annualcreditreport.com and get copies of all three credit reports.  Look them over very carefully and file disputes on all errors (not your account, wrong information, etc) with the credit bureau reporting it.  They have to investigate and either verify or delete the disputed item.

This little search should clear up the errors you have noted and improve your credit score some.
