CA questions

Hi everyone! I'm a newbie here and have been reading the forums for the last week and it's just amazing at the information I've collected so I'm grateful for it! Anyhow, I have a few questions about CAs:
 
On my credit report, I have one CA, Palisades, which was hired by Verizon. I've never had an acct with them at all and I've received 2 letters from the CA wanting me to pay $366. How do I go about having it removed? It is the only CA on my EX CR that is showing.
 
Also, I have 2 old CA accts that I paid back in July 2005 that is reflected on my CR. Is it possible to have it deleted since I paid it and it's been 2 years? (Just being hopeful!)
 
Thanks!

The 2 paid CAs, write Goodwill letters asking them to remove.  One of our moderators, Tuscani, provided some very good examples which you can find on the following link:
 
 
 
As for the Palisades collections, I would send them a debt validation letter, or you can dispute with all 3 CRAs as "not mine".
 
Hope this helps!

Thank you Trinigal! I will dispute it with the CRAs first then try the GW letters if that doesn't work.

Re: CA questions

Just wanting to make sure you understood that trinigal is saying GW letters to each of the 2 old paid collections in hopes they will remove before SOL,
 
and
 
The Verizon/Palisades issue which you are saying is not yours you need to DV on any CBR it appears on. Only the 2 paid old CA issues are GW letter situations.  You can write the letters now as it is unrelated to the DV issue.  
 
BTW it is recommended that you do disputes/DVs on a paid CBR, not on the free annual ones.
