The bill was when you were 15? That's not your bill. If the bill happened when you were 18, you need to pay it if you don't want the collection on your credit report...

Did you sign the paper stating you would be financially responsible for the debt?  If not get copies of your regular credit reports and file disputes on this debt with the bureaus reporting it.
