Re: Should I try

Try for PFDs first.  Maybe you can get some of them off that way.   Don't just pay and hope for a GW, it may come to this later, but give the PFDs a try first.

I mean is it something you really owe and is it still within SOL?

PFD = Pay For Deletion (or maybe it's Paid instead of Pay)
