File a dispute at the Websites

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

File a dispute.  At the Websites for each of the Credit Bureaus find a link for "File A Dispute"  it's simple and only takes a few minutes. file a dispute for each item on your credit report that you are contesting.  Accounts are often sold over and over so they can appear on your report with different collection agencies trying to collect.  You may need to provide proof of the paid account so be prepared to mail copies of anything you reference in your dispute. 

Good Luck

Write a dispute letter to the major credit bureaus reporting this: Let them know that you have duplicate accounts. They will remove it......
