Then the same debt is listed with the collections companies that the debt has been turned over to. This seems odd to me since it's only 1 debt and it is, in essence, showing up twice on my report, causing my credit to look even worse (even though it's not great).Is this right? I've been trying to call the 3 credit reporting bureaus and every time I get an automated message saying to check out their website, blah blah blah. Help?
