When an item has been deleted, occasionally, verification comes in later on behalf of the creditor. The Fair Credit Reporting Act recently modified its language to keep items from being re-reported on your report. Also, you must be informed before an item that was taken off before can be reported again. Once removed, it is quite unusual for a listing to show up again. If an item is re-reported, it is a simple matter to challenge the listing and press for permanent deletion.
