The collection on your report should show either the company the original collection is from or the collection agency that is handling the debt. There should be a phone number associated with it, but if not you can google the agency's number and give them a call to find out what the debt is.

Option # 1, you need to find out who the original creditor was. If you already know, just give them a call & ask who has your account now. They should be able to give you a company name & phone number. Option # 2, you could just google the company shown on your credit report to find their phone number. Once you've obtained the phone number of the company who now has your account, just give them a call & work out payment arrangements with them to get your account back into a paying status. Just a heads up, most if not all collections agencies require you to set up your payments via ACH debit, aka an automatic draft through your checking or savings account.
