I had one of them do that as well. I disputed with the CRAs who simply "verified" the debt with the vultures who of course affirmed it was accurate, and it stayed.
That really hacked me off as it had a last activity date of like 1992 so it had been 20 years and they were still re-aging it and it looked like they planned to do so forever. I complained to the CFPB about it, and what do you know it disappeared soon after from my reports. Nothing of course happened about the fact that re-aging it was illegal but then again in the US business is free to pretty much violate the law with total impunity if you think about it so what can we expect. At least it was removed.
I would try that route.
