Dealing with a US collections agency when not in the US?

Had a US collections agency pop up on my credit report saying that I owe them an amount less than $100. This question has been asked before, but one twist in my situation: I am currently living and working outside of the United States.

I've been out of the States for a couple of years now, so I'm not even sure where this charge is coming from. I'm not planning on returning to the US anytime soon, but I was wondering what the best course of action would be. Can I force the collections company to send verification of the debt to my address in Asia? When disputing the claim to the three credit bureaus, I need to do it via snail mail, right?
I'm wondering what the best course of action would be given my situation. Any help would be very much appreciated.
