Why does it say I have 5 open accts in collections, but only 4 derogatory remarks on my credit?
I just paid off one of the accounts that on here show as "open" in collections- is that reflecting in the derogatory marks which is why I only have 4 now, and just hasn't caught up the "open accounts" yet? How long will it take from the time I paid off the account that was in collections until the time it finally falls off my credit?
