To have items removed from your credit report, you would need to write dispute letters to each one of the credit bureaus.   You can send the same letter, just change the address.   You can locate their addresses through varous google searches as well as on their own websites as well.   You could locate some form letters on line as well, although just a clearly written letter with all the facts would suffice.   Also, to save time, ensure you send proof of your identity.  (Copy license, Social Security and proof of address (phone/electric bill).   Each bureau contains their own data, removing from one will not remove from the others which is why you would need to write each of them individually.  Good luck in this endeavor.

What kind of old accounts? If the accounts were closed in good standing, DO NOT try to remove them, that would hurt your credit.
