you wouldn't happen to know how to deal with the ones who sell your debt right before they are supposed to drop off, do you? I have a few accounts that should have dropped off but they keep getting sold to other debt collection companies.  I want these items gone for good but don't know where to start.....any help is much appreciated! thanks =)

What should I do before paying off all my debt?

@Nunnyabusines's; Hi, your response to the question was very informative but i still am unclear about some things.  I too have some accounts in collections, and from what i can see the original creditor has sold them to collection companies. On a few of them I noticed that they were re-sold to another company right before they were due to fall off my report.  How can i get them to stop being sold? I'm not trying to get out of paying my debt, but i feel as though these accounts should have fallen off years ago and here I am still struggling with them.  Any advice as to where I should start? And, if I do negotiate with these companies to pay off the debt, will they be the ones to take the collections mark off my report or am I going to have to do that myself by sending in a receipt of payment to the 3 credit agencies? Thanks for your help!
