for $25 that I had no idea I owed until yesterday and I paid it in full yesterday? That is some BS. Well everything else I owe is up to date, anyone know how much something this minor can drop a credit score? 100 points or so? I know when I pulled my credit in the summer between the 3 credit bureaus the average was about 780 or so.

That's IF the collection agency is reporting it.

You may have gotten scammed. Some scam debt collection agency know that some people will just pay the small amount anyways.
