need to pay collections, info not found
There is a collection on my account for $82 from years ago, but there is no agency or contact information listed.

I would very much like to pay this and get it off my account.

Pull your reports directly from the credit bureaus (transunion, equifax and experian) to try to find more information on this collection company. Remember that paying a collection does NOT remove it from your credit reports. You will want to attempt a PAY FOR DELETE on this account once you find out the contact info, a PAY FOR DELETE agreement is when you get the collection company to agree to remove the account from your reports in exchange for you paying it. Obviously you will want to get this agreement prior to paying. Keep in mind that not all companies will do a pay for delete. Most negative accounts fall off your reports 7 years from the time that they became negative, so keep that in mind as well. If you cannot find any information on this company then you may want to consider disputing the account as you have no way to pay it if you don't know who owns it.
