How to get a collection agency to remove an item from credit report after it's been paid in full?
I paid an old debt from an apartment I rented 3 yrs ago. It keeps coming up on my credit report and is stopping me from renting a new place. I called the agency and am told that there is nothing they can do. I want to dispute this but I need this fixed quickly so that I can rent. Any advice?
