Is it YOUR bill??

Helpful to 1 out of 3 people

First thing to find out is, is it your bill?  Did you just find the collection on this site?  CK gets information from Transunion, which is one of the three credit reporting bureaus in the US.  It's not uncommon for there to be errors on credit reports because humans are entering the data and humans are imperfect.

Go to freeannualreport.com and get all 3 credit reports.  Look them over carefully and note anything that is incorrect, especially accounts that you know are not yours.  File a dispute on each erroneous item with the credit bureau reporting same.  They have to oinvestigate and either verivy or delete the item.

Make it a practice to check your credit reports every year so that onnly the correct information is shown.

Hope this helps.
