Open Collection Question
Hello I have a quick quesiton;

I have a Open collection on my credit report
Opened Date : Aug 28, 2009
Last Reported : Feb 11, 2010
Owe : $81.00

I did pay this off long time ago, but it still says open.
After 7 years doesn't it fall off my credit report?
Or is it better just to send a little to the CB and have them get it fix to paid.
And if they do that, do I have to wait another 7 years for it to fall off my credit report?

Thank you!
