Should I contact or pay Financial Recoveries, Inc.?

It’s best to avoid speaking to a debt collector on the phone. And making payments on the debt will reset the clock. As a result, it could harm your credit rather than improve it. However, sometimes it’s better just to pay the collection account, especially if it’s new, and you’re certain that it’s legit.
