Re: collecton names with numbers

I've run across the same thing and the only thing I know to do is try and match up as much information as possible with your credit report. TU gives detailed information...CA and/or OC with address, Acct #, etc.  On my collection accounts that only gave information in "greek" I went through my 3 CR and matched up dollar amounts.
 
For example:
 
Collection Agency             401yc00000
 
current balance             $862.00
 
I went back thru my reports and found the CA/OC that I owed $862.00 and I will mail a letter to them asking for PFD.
 
 
sorry about the double post!!

Have you tried disputing any of these? I would try based on the info being reported is not clear enough to determine that they are yours.  I would do this in writing to the CRA's. If you can't determine that the are yours how can anyone else.

Did you pull your reports from MyFico or directly from the CRAs or through another reseller?

Coded collection items usually indicate a medical collection. Do the dates and amounts match up with any doctor or hospital expenses that you can remember?

You beat me to it.  It's probably a medical collection.  I had them report that way from myfico, but when I pulled True Credit, the actual name of the collection company was there.
