You don't get FICO scores here, you get Vantage scores, just wanted to make sure you are clear on that.

As far as which collection to pay first, a lot will ride on that decision. Such as: age of accounts, which ones can you be sued for and which ones have the "statute of limitations" expired on. Which ones will be falling off sooner and which ones will last longer. Have you studied about "pay for delete agreements" that is truly what you want if possible. Do some reading on all of this before just jumping in, mistakes can easily be made if you don't study this first.
