Is American Medical Collection Agency hurting your credit score?

Lexington Law has helped millions of customers remove collections and other negative items from their credit reports. Let them help you too!

Who is American Medical Collection Agency?

American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA), which also does business as Retrieval-Masters Creditors Bureau, Inc. (RMCB), is a debt collection agency located in Elmsford, New York. As the name states, they specialize in collecting medical debts. Some of their corporate clients include patients of corporate clients like Quest Diagnostics, LabCorp, Carecentrix, and Sunrise Laboratories.

You may see them listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you forgot to pay a bill and your account was sent to a debt collector.

Removing AMCA Collections

Collections can hurt your credit score and remain on your credit report for up to 7 years regardless of whether you pay it or not. Unfortunately, paying the collection could even lower your credit score.

However, it is possible to have a collection account removed from your credit report before 7 years.

(Debt collectors prefer that we didn’t tell you this, but it’s something you should know.)

Lexington Law is a credit repair company that helps people fix their credit.

In addition to collections, Lexington Law will help you challenge (and possibly remove) other inaccurate information from your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, judgments, tax liens, and bankruptcies.

Will American Medical Collection Agency sue me or garnish my wages?

It’s possible, but if you work with a law firm like Lexington Law, you have nothing to worry about.

Call Lexington Law to learn how they can help you avoid lawsuits and remove negative items from your credit report that will significantly improve your credit scores.

Wage Garnishment

Some states allow wage garnishment, while others do not. It is important to note that if you are in a state that does not allow wage garnishment, it is illegal for them to threaten to garnish your wages.

It is also illegal for AMCA to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on – this includes threatening to sue you or to foreclose on your home.

American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA) Complaints

Most collection agencies have numerous complaints filed against them with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Most complaints are about inaccurate reporting, harassment, or failure to verify a debt. If you find yourself facing any of these situations with a debt collection agency, you should also consider filing a complaint.

You have many consumer rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Lexington Law knows that you have rights, and American Medical Collection Agency does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with American Medical Collection Agency

There are strict regulations about what a debt collector can and cannot do in the United States. For example, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prevents the use of abusive or deceptive tactics to collect any debt, whether or not you actually owe it. In addition, the FDCPA provides you with many rights to ensure that collection agencies don’t take advantage of you. In particular:

  • Debt validation. Under the FDCPA, you have the right to validate a debt. Upon request, the collection agency reporting the information must prove to you, within 30 days, that the account is really your responsibility and the amount of money you owe is accurate.
  • All personal debts are covered, including personal credit cards, auto loans, household bills, and mortgage payments.
  • AMCA may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • AMCA must be honest about who they are and what they are trying to do. They must notify you that they are a collection agency both orally and in writing.
  • AMCA cannot threaten to have you arrested, and they are not allowed to threaten to take legal action if they have no intention of doing so.
