$600 and $200 Collections? Pay for delete or in full?
I have two (legitimate) collections on my credit report. Now I have the money to pay both.

1. $600 medical (2013)
2. $200 vet bill (2015)

I have never paid on either, nor ever talked to anyone about them. I was going to call tomorrow to pay in full, but have come across the Pay For Delete culture. Is it worth the time/energy to do that for these collections? Or will they remove them if I pay in full? Thanks!
