You need to find out what the $980.00 is for specifically. If its clear you dont ow it you might have a collections abuse case. If you do or its debatable. then you have a contract/landlord tenant case and it may be more efficient to pay the money and clear the credit but you can sue to dispute claim in an effort to have them remove it as part of a settlement.
