You would probably have to contact the collection company to find out what the account is for if they do not have the info listed. You have to be very careful contacting collection companies, don't give them any more info than you have to and do not admit to the debt. Even if you do find out who the original creditor is, they may not accept payment and may refer you to the collection company to make your payment to them. Make sure that you understand "PAY FOR DELETE AGREEMENTS" before you proceed. Simply paying a collection or even the original creditor will only result in the collection account being marked as paid and that does nothing for your scores, you want to get the account removed as that will be the only way to help your scores.
