Actually, your score is better than I would expect with that number of collection accounts.  Here's some FREE advice (as opposed to redguy411 who is just fishing for clients)...

How old are the collection accounts?  If they are near 7 years old, then leave them alone, they'll fall off on their own.  If you want to pay them, then (1) make sure they are yours, (2) negotiate a Pay Per Delete, where you get them to say IN WRITING that they'll delete the accounts once paid in full.

Finally, please visit a great website for all things credit related - www.credit.about.com.  No signup needed and tons of great advice, totally free.
