We received a collection notice for an old account 3 months ago. We sent out validation letter and did not receive any response. I checked our credit report again today. The collection agency we received letter from removed thier statement for collections, but now the same account is listed by 3 different agency names.
I am really confused. On Equifax they are listed as MGM (or something like that), on Experian they are listed as Fairway, then on TransUnion they are listed as F&W, LLC. None of these collection agencies are who we sent our debt validation letter to. The account number is the same for all 3 of these new collectors.
We are so close to really cleaning up our credit scores and our credit score has actually improved, but stupid things like this keep setting it back.
What should I do? Should I contact the credit agencies and dispute the listing? What do I say? That I already dealt with this account with a different collection agency? Help!
