I thought that when u pay a collection it resets the age of the account. I live in Georgia so if I pay off a collection that originated in 2006 it has to fall off once its paid?
I was thinking this too, but I trust the expertise on here!
It would make more sense to me not to reset the age if you pay the account - that way there is an actual incentive for you to pay. But then, none of this stuff really seems to be logical. LOL.
