I have a question regarding having something removed from my

Customer Question

I have a question regarding having something removed from my credit report. I have a medical bill from what I believe is from when my daughter was born in 2003. It is still being reported as a collection on my credit report. I'm afraid to dispute for fear that it will extend the amount of time it remains, should I take the chance? How do I find out when the original debt went into late status without raising a red flag to the collection agency?

If this is over 8 years all you need do is contact the credit agency and they must remove it by law. I can also so a telephone call if you want.
