Collection not showing on my report.
I don't want to jinx it. However, I have an amount in collections- yet it doesn't show up on my credit score, or report. Should I be worried about this?

Have you checked all 3?

It might not be showing here because the info this site gets is from Trans Union.  But the collection agency may report to Experian or Equifax (or both).  You need to get copies oif all 3 credit reports every year so you can check for errors (not uncommon).

In the meantime, since you know you have an account in collections and know to whom it should be paid, your best course of action is to work on getting it paid off.
