Validation letter.

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

Send a validation letter to each creditor. You can find a template for this type of  letter on line.  

Ask them to prove that you are indeed an original signer on the account. If they can't then they will have to remove it from your credit report. 

If they can then you will have to pay up. 

If the accounts are older and you haven't had contact with the creditors in years, it may be wiser to let the "age out" and fall off you report. Most state that time frame is 6-7 years.   If they are that old and you do contact them that will reset the clock on the account and if they are yours they will be there for another 6 or 7 years. if you decide to pay them off, be sure to get an agreement in writing that they will remove it from your report when you pay them.  And always return Reciept signature required when contacting them. 

Good luck.
