If the collection agency is not listed, you should contact the original company to determine if they still own the debt.  If they sold it, they will provide you the contact information of the firm they sold it.  It is very important that you initiate contact and payment arrangements before they post it to your credit report as an additional collection.  If the debt is till held by the original company and they only assigned it and did not sell it, you would make arrangements with them.  You can still negotiate a pay for delete option with them if they still own the debt.
