      Not sure if this is the right category…it seemed closest.


      I have a collection on my credit report for an old AT&T account. I moved, transferred my service, and they set up a duplicate account and never closed the old one. I didn’t know about it until a few weeks ago, and ATT customer service was happy to fix it. Does anyone know how long it will take for the collection to come off my credit report? I’d like to pull my report again, since the collection is listed as of a few weeks ago, but I don’t want to pull it before the collection is removed.


      I’m assuming ATT will pull the account back from collections, since it was their mistake, and they removed the balance on the account…or will I have to send a debt validation letter to the collection agency before they will remove it?
