    Hello,
    *
    I just got a letter from a collection agency; it’s for a debt that I owed to sprint a little over 2 years ago. It was on my Report, but I disputed it in august last year and it was removed by the credit agency.

    Now I got this letter today, it’s from a different collection*agency and they want to settle this for 70% of the original amount which was 396. I will be paying them 270, which I do not intent to do.
    *I know that these collection agencies don’t always do the right thing, and I’m wondering if they can claim that money, it’s been over 2 years.
    Also, I’m trying to rebuild my credit right now and I was thinking about settling this for $50. I don’t know if they would agree but that’s all I’m willing to pay.

    If they are in their right and*can still claim this debt, I’m willing to pay $50. I just don’t wanna have this collection back on my credit report.

    So, should I settle this after 2 years?
