Bank of america claiming they were part of my bankruptcy which they were not and I have copy of bankruptcy papers, but reporting on my credit report that they were. Have tried direct contact with consumer protection bureau and credit agencies but none seem willing to resolve this issue. They had originally claimed they bought my mortgage after mt bankruptcy had already been discharged. Because of the untruth to this they were involved in previous class action lawsuit I did not sign up for but recieved settlement check when they lost. How can they file claim on my credit after that?

Can Bank of America report status as 90-120 days late on an paid in full account years later? This ruined my credit and they won't fix it.
