If you haven't already, get copies of all three credit reports and go over them carefully.  It is not unusual to find errors and it is your responsibility to make sure your report information is correct.

Have you received any calls on this collection account?  If so, they have 5 days from the date of contact to send you something in writing showing they have the right to collect on this account. 

Make sure it IS yours before being so quick to pay it.
