Pay TO delete?

I have a collection account that shows as paid on all 3 CRs - I never actually paid the debt collector (they wouldn't agree to a pay to delete) but I paid the company I originally owed the bill to.  

 

How can I get this off?  I've disputed it, but if they come back and validate it, can I call them and offer them money to take it off even though I never paid them?

 

TIA :smileyhappy:

Let's see how far we've come...
