NEWBIE!! My first success with removal of CA from reports!

I am so excited.  My husband and I are newbie's to this forum.  I've been trolling the boards here for a while and decided I'd start applying what I've learned.  I am so happy to share that I had 2 of my original creditors agree to remove the items from my credit report.  Here are the details: 


CA - Old Water Bill $150, paid two years ago but not scheduled to fall off until 2015.  I called Original Creditor explained bill was set up in my name in error should have been under my employer (I had a home office at the time).  They agreed to remove. 


CA- Old Dental Copay - $37, paid two years ago, but not scheduled to fall off until 2015.  I called the Collection Agency and asked if they would be willing to remove since it was such a small amount.  To my suprise they said YES!!! 


Just sharing my victory.  Hopefully many more to come, we have a lot of work to do.  I'll probably be asking for more advice in the weeks to come!
