You really need to read the articles here to learn how credit really works and this information will help you for the rest of your life.  When you pay a bill, you are paying the company not the credit bureau.  Since the expressed purpose of Credit Karma is to TEACH how credit works and how to build your credit score, the details in the articles will explain what you need to know.

Do some reading on "pay for delete agreements" in addition to all credit topics. Collections are not just removed upon paying them. No, you do not pay double. Please read about this stuff before you take any action. Many people go into credit rebuiding and cause further damage to their credit because they didn't take the time to read first.
