It sounds like one collection company sold your accounts to another collection company. If you have the money to pay these accounts in full then contact the collection company and offer a "pay for delete" at about 50% of face value if the accounts are outside of the Statute of Limitations to be sued for the debt. Negotiate with them on the "pay for delete" and if you have to in order to get a pay for delete pay them 100% face value of the accounts to get them removed from your reports. Do some studying on "pay for delete offers" " 7 year credit reporting time period" "negotiating with debt collectors" "paying old debts". Be aware that just paying a collection account is not grounds to have it removed from your reports, it would only be marked as paid and that does nothing to improve your credit scores.
