refiling of debts

When I was building my house I ran into financial problems and had to declare bankruptcy. My trustee had told the heating company that if they wanted their furnace they would have to go into the house (it was still under construction) and retrieve it. They did not and the house was sold by the trustee with the furnace. The debt for the furnace was disclosed in the bankruptcy filing and they did not contest the filing.
They have now come back at me three years later and have refiled the debt for this furnace and stated that it was a registered debt?
Can this be possible?
What can I do to get this off my credit report as the company now is quite adamant that I owe them the $8,000 + for this furnace that I do not have and have already declared as a debt when I filed for bankruptcy?

The lender will likely not be able to do anything at this point. The best thing to do is to contact your trustee and have him advise you as to what steps you need to take. Likely your trustee will simply provide some documents to the creditor in question and things will get resolved that way.
