Hi! I'm sorry that you're having to deal with this... Your question may fall more into a legal matter than a tax matter. But, from personal experience. The best way to get something taken care of on your credit report is to contact the reporting agencies directly.

This link will give you the contact information to each of the credit bureaus. https://epic.org/privacy/financial/credit_bureaus.html

This is a law website that gives the steps that you can take to get your credit report corrected if you are unable to do so through traditional methods. This can involve filing complaints with the Federal Trade Commission.
