Help! Cash Pro?
I had a check advance many years ago, around 6 or so years actually. One cash advance, now I have 12 open debts on my credit report by "Cash Pro". It was around $200 tops, that I can remember. Now I have these "Cash pro collections" 12 to be exact of $930, $125, $341, and other random obscene amounts. I've been trying to clear this ONE check up for years but cant figure out how to contact them, this is killing my credit and I just want to pay my debt and whatever interest and move on and begin repairing my credit score. Please help, thanks for your time.

Validation Letter

Write a "validation letter" for each open account to the credit reporting agencies. That may be a lot of letters to write but with the number of accounts that you mention it will probably be worth.  (There seem to be a lot, so I would put each sealed envelope into a large mailer and save the postage) 

Templates for this type of letter are available on line. Google it. 

That letter will require them to prove that you are responsible for the account, that they provided you with proper invoices, that they actually have the right to collect it.  By law,  If they can't provide the info then they must remove it from your report.   Most of the time this will force them to drop the account because of the cost to provide the info if they ever had it. 

Give it a try. I'd like to hear how it goes!  

Good luck. 

PS. Stay away from payday loans!
