Should I consider paying temporarily removed collection account?
So I have a collection debt with Comcast. The debt is over 3 years old. However the debt is constantly being sold to new collection agencies every six months. At this very moment the debt is not appearing on my credit report. I got an alert that it was removed. So my question is should I contact the most recent collection agency and ask them who they sold my case to? After that I will call the new agency and see if I can pay them off before they report the new case on my report once again. Can I do this? Will this be smart? I notice that when this case is on my report it drops me down by 71 points! 

By the way, the debt is $246.

Don't do anything until you've done more reading, you may come to regret it. NEVER talk to them on the phone.

Look up dunning letters, PFD (pay for delete) etc.

Good luck!
