I have an account that was charged off 7 years ago
I have an account that was charged off in 2008 and was turned over for collections. On my credit reports it shows the the account was opened in 2011. That is when another collection agency got it, I am guessing. What should I do about this. I was originally a $400 debt from an old boyfriend and now they are saying it is over $1,100.
