Closed accounts
I have two accounts in the "Closed Collections" section, one was originally reported to Trans Union less than a year ago, the other just over a year ago. If these are closed collections that I have not paid, do I still need to pay them? I know they'll be on my score for about 7 years, so I'm assuming that if I don't pay them it will show up on my report as unresolved. Should I pay them off? And why were they closed after only being on my report for about a year?
