is this "bill" a collection? have you tried paying to the OC? or is this being reported by a CA?

Its a collection on my reports from a CA. I never tried paying back OC because I wasnt working.

Its a collection on my cc reports.
From personal experience, I've had success getting UNPAID medical collections from 2008 and 2009 deleted off ALL 3 CRAs by sending the pre-HIPAA letters. Check your inbox!
