    Back in 99, I had an old phone bill go into collections. They were using one company. Then, in September, it was sent to another company.

    So it looks like I have 2 collections for the same account. How can I have the outdated one removed?

    They can not report it as two accounts. Only student loans can be reported twice. So, you can call the credit bureau and let them know they are doing this. Dispute it etc. If it is equifax, they have a bad habit of listing the account under collections and then listing it again under credit accounts with a R9.
