Derogatory Reported for Years old Charge Unknown to me

Verizon just sent a very old charge for $57 from more than 8 years ago to collections before asking me for payment.  How can I get this paid and removed from my credit report which is in great shape otherwise? I'm not even sure what the charge is for. 

I moved over to Verizon just after Christmas 2022 (2+ months ago) and was notified on 2/25/23 from a collection agency that they were trying to collect the $57. I was not notified by Verizon that I owed any amount and would be happy to pay much more just to keep it off of my credit report.

Verizon, can you please help me? 

Thanks, much!

Hi malibubach,

Once an account is in collections, it is transferred from Verizon to a third-party collector. You will need to contact the collection agency for information or to file a dispute regarding your closed account.
