Multiple collection entries for the same date?
I have three collection entries (with different dollar amounts) from the same collector at the same place for the same day. (12/03/2013) I also four collection entries from the same collector at the same place in the same date, but also different dollar amounts. (08/12/2013) How is this possible?
If you have an account that goes into collection, shouldn't it should be one entry for one amount at the same place on the same day?

You need to dispute these accounts with the credit bureaus reporting them. Transunion, Equifax and Experian all have websites with contact info and instructions on how to dispute information. You may also wish to do some reading on the FDCPA (fair debt collection practices act) and consult with a FDCPA consumer law attorney if you feel the need. They are not allowed to put multiple collection accounts for the same original account. Kimmel & Silverman is a great law firm if they practice in your state.
