Now heres the unique part on my Experian report i see Comcast collections up there for 942 and then 144 i disputed it because i never had comcast comes back as valid i wonder how ..

Is it CA's reporting the charge off? Collections can switch hands multiple times and leave trade lines each time.
I had a similar situation on my reports for a medical collection. I contacted the originial creditor and they verified that I had no connection to the account. I then called the CA and told them that even the OC says its an error and I actually got the CA to call the OC about it and the CA deleted. Its odd that they arent deleting it if they acknowledge that its not you. I wouldnt bother disputing with the CRA's because they dont go very far to verify. You need to dispute directly to those reporting to the CRA's.

yea i've done this but they still wont remove it i really dont know how can they keep it pinned too me without the correct information though its just really wierd i spoke with the OC and the CA they still wont remove it i spent nearly 4hrs on the phone and the only thing i accomplished was them telling me to open a police report , then file affidavit with the FTC adn some other info just to get it removed .... but other than that about the Plains Commerce its reported twice on my report but the same company name but just details saying charge off 0 balance on both ...
