It's not Credit Karma, it's the collections agency. They need to confirm that it was reported correctly to the bureaus. Ask for this confirmation (or payment and reporting) in writing and then send it to the bureaus and ask for a correction.

The negative history with that creditor will remain on your report for 7 years, but the delinquency/collections status should go away.
