I was going through my "Paid Bill" File, and came across the court papers for a judgement that I had paid. This one is really nagging me cause: 1) It's paid, but stays on my reports until 1/2006; 2) On my TU, the Attorney's Office has posted a collection account that falls off in 2005 for the same account (showing paid collection - disputed and supposedly "verified"). After closely reviewing the affidavit from the original creditor, they STATE CLEARLY that I was not a member of the armed forces or military when I signed the contract or any period throughout. WRONG. I was a member of the Marine Corps Reserve. Do I have a leg to stand on to get this vacated on that technicality? And, just as importantly, is there anything I can do to get this "Paid Collection" off of my report? I look forward to your responses... A. J.
