Ok, Here's the deal. Cox Communications assigned an account to Credit Protection Association (CPA) in 12-01. My credit report has been updated to show that the account was opened on 12-03 - yet have collection activity that is 2 years prior to this.
CPA says that Cox has submitted and deleted the account THREE times, only to call back the next day to have the account re-placed with CPA. At this rate, they could do this forever!!!
