collection on erroneous account while my actual account is fully paid and current

When I had my service installed, the technician came twice saying that the account hadn't been properly configured for my fios bundle. 

A few months later, although I paid my bill in full, I got a notice indicating an amount past due. I called customer service, and they indicated that a second account had been incorrectly  attached to this address.   I check my account online and it s says "paid in full" .  They said it would be taken care of and not to pay this other amount. 

Now I get a collection letter relating to this other account.  I call customer service and although people keep telling me this other account is in error, no one will do anything about it.  I get transferred to billing and they say all they can do is collect payment on an amount but can't tell me I owe it or what it is for. 

Does this happen?  No one at Verizon is willing to resolve this.
