I have several entries on my credit report from accounts where the first date of delinquency with the original debtor was well over seven years ago but the account has been sold in some instances several times to other collection agencies who list the date at which they bought the account as the date of the debt. I live in AZ and I didn't think this was allowed to "reset the clock" on the debt. Please help.
