Dispute!!!

First, get copies of all three of your credit reports from annualcreditreport.com.  Look these over very carefully and file disputes over all wrong information with the credit bureau reporting it.  I recommend doing this in writing and keep copies of all communications until this issue is completely resolved. They have to do the investigating and either validate or delete the disputed items.

First, file a disppute with the CRA's

you can file a dispute on line at each of the Credit Reporting Agencies websites. Its easy to do and only takes a couple of minutes. They will investigate to see what is happening.  It could have been mistakenly reported to your account or someone may have made a type-o when entering info at any one of many levels in the filing process.

Follow up with a simple letter stating that you have not filed bankruptcy and want this mis-information removed from your report.   

Good Luck
