What would you do?

Ok so on my Equifax report it shows this collection

this entry does not show up on my Experian or my Transunion reports.  However, my Transunion report shows a new collection from a new CA for this account.

 

I DONT remember paying this nor do I have any record of doing so.

 

Best steps to take ?

 

Thanks!

Re: What would you do?

Looks to me like it should be coming off in less than 6 months. I'd forget about it, but others will tell you the debt doesn't go away just because it's not on your report.

 

Unless you're trying to get a mortgage or there's some other reason you need it off your report ASAP, I'd just wait it out.

Maybe they marked it as paid when they transferred it to the other CA.

ETA - read post as you no recollection of account vs. not remembering if paid. 

 

Do you have anything from the OC listed on your report?  I would think they would still be listed at this time, if so, is it still showing a balance?

I would send them a DV and maybe even a copy of what you are showing there.  It shows it was paid at least about 2 years ago.

 Do you recall having this account?  I just think it's odd (it could be normal, but just doesn't seem right) that the OC is not reporting, be it paid, transferred/sold.  At least IME  no OC stopped reporting once sold/placed for collection.  All of mine are sitting right there, even after payment.

Re: What would you do?

I recall it yes, i found a few statements that are really old, but nothing in the last few years.  I would certainly remember paying for it I think, however, I dont.
