I'm sorry, but I have no idea.

You are following the correct procedures. The core issue is whether or not you really owe the debt to this collection agency. You have said the card was opened fraudulently. I assume that you mean that this is not your debt and never has been your debt. Sometimes people find it helpful to file police reports and to send affidavits regarding identity theft to the credit reporting agencies and the debt collectors. Seek out an attorney with experience in the Fair Credit Reporting Act. www.naca.net is one resource to find such attorneys.

If this is truly not your account, then you may have a Fair Credit Reporting Act claim against this company. I would first dispute the account in writing with the credit bureaus (via certified mail return receipt requested) and advise them that this a fraudulent account. I would then contact a consumer protection attorney in your state if the account is not removed within 30 days. Good luck.
