How to pay collections and make sure it gets taken off my credit report??
I have 10 accounts in collections that i need to pay, but after reading a lot of comments on here i want to make sure i go about doing it the correct way. If I call the collection agency what do i say to them to make sure that i get it taken off my credit report? Also many people were saying that the collection agencies will settle for a lower price than what i owe. What do i need to say to settle with them? Thanks for you time

Don't expect anything to be taken off your credit. Your credit history is just that. A history of how you performed with managing your credit. If you have account go to collection then that is your history.

When you pay them off then they will in all probability list them as paid. But don't expect anything to be removed. Your credit is what you made of it.
