Some of my debts are listed multiple times on my credit report. What should I do?

If the same debt is listed multiple times (possibly with different names) you should dispute the multiple listings with the credit reporting agency and the original creditor or furnisher that provided the information to the credit reporting agency. 

A multiple listing is not a harmless error. It will likely lower your credit score and lead lenders to give you loan offers with higher interest rates and less favorable terms.
