Open Accounts in Collection ding but collection agnt is out of business. can it be removed
This was a legit collection way back in 2010 but debt was cleared in BK. It shows open acct but the collection agency is now out of business. Can I dispute this acct? It would really help the score rebuilding if it can be removed.

If it was discharged in bankruptcy, then I would dispute the account directly with the credit bureaus. If you are lucky, instead of the account being corrected it may be deleted. I wish you luck. Dispute instructions are listed on each credit bureau's website. (Transunion, Equifax and Experian)
