Have you been contacted about these debts or are they just showing on here?  If you have not been contacted by phone and/or letter but the debts are showing on here, there could be an error, which is not uncommon. It would be so foolish to just try paying something just because it's on your credit report if you have any question about it.

Go to freeannualreport.com and order all 3 credit reports.  Look them over carefully and file a dispute with each credit bureau reporting something you knokw or even think might be wrong.  You should know to whom you owe money so, just because it's on a credit report doesn't mean it's your debt.  The credit bureau has to investigate and either verify or remove the disputed item

Make it a habit to check your credit reports every year to be certain that only your accounts are listed.
