Ok, so I had a cable bill collection on all three of my reports. I paid the cable company and the CA updated it as paid (don't judge, I had no communication with them at all, not even a letter from them). I gave it a few months and disputed the paid collection with TU and in response to the dispute, the CA added the same collection to all three bureaus as a new collection (separate from the one that has been paid for months), and this time it shows unpaid and the amount due. The date assigned, amount, etc are all different. What is the best way for me to handle this? I would like to take advantage of the situation to make them remove BOTH collections, the paid one and this new one from all 3 of my reports. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Equidata has placed two collection accounts on all 3 CRA's. The original amount was $712 owed to a cable provider. Equidata bought the debt and is now splitting the debt in two and reporting as separate accounts. They did send a payment ledger from the OC that shows the full amount of $712 under one account number. The amount is from damaged equipment and a late payment. Equidata has one collection account for $185 for service and on for $527 for equipment. Are they allowed to buy this one debt and split it like that? What can I do if anything to get this taken care of. This is a validated debt but I am unsure if them splitting the account will work out in my benefit. Thanks in advance
