our son was put on a collections when he was a minor
(Concord, NC, USA)
Our son's credit report showed a collections that was put on his due to same first and last name. We reported it to the bureau's and they said it belonged to him. He was in high school and has never had a job or house. We were told to pay it for him and now we want it off of his report. We never ever received any information from this collection company even after they said it belonged to him. Now what do we do? We want this off of his credit report. We had it deleted off of ours and then it appeared on his. Even before it was ever put on they never contacted anyone in our family that they put it on. We only found it on ours after we applied for aa mortgage. Equifax said it belonged to him and then after that the collection never sent him a letter stating that it was on there and they wanted payment. Is this against the law?
