    I suggest disputing with the credit bureau. My understanding is that the collection agency *can* do this. The thing to try to take advantage of is the collection agency's lack of interest in old paid accounts. If you try to get the agency to retract the listing, they really have no incentive to take the effort (and the possible violation of their subscription contract with the bureau.) But if you dispute it with the bureau, then the collectors might not confirm it, since they may have moved the account records into less-accessable archives from where the active accounts are.

    Good Luck.
