Collection company
I have a $57 bill with a collection company from 2010, scheduled to fall off credit reports 11/2017. If I pay it in full now, I understand it will show "pd in full" but will it still fall off in 2017, or will the 7 yrs start over?

Nothing restarts the 7 1/2 year (CRA often remove it after 7 years if not bit sooner) reportable period on collection accounts, Nothing. In New York State, paid collection suppose only last on your report for 5 years, so you may want to check out your State's collection/consumer laws.
