Go to annualcreditreport.com and get copies of all three credit reports.  The information you need should be on them.

Start googling and doing some detective work to find out the contact info, just make sure that you are actually contacting the correct company and do not give any personal information such as social security number to strangers on the phone. If you find the contact info, offer them a "pay for delete" (meaning that you will pay if they agree to delete the account from your reports)
