Who is American Profit Recovery, Inc.?

American Profit Recovery, Inc. (APR), is a significant player in the debt collection industry in the United States. The company is headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, with an additional operational base in Franklin, Massachusetts.

If you find APR listed on your credit report, it means that a debt you owe has been transferred from the original creditor to this agency for collection. The listing may have been added because a bill was forgotten or neglected and was left unpaid for an extended period of time. In such instances, the original creditor may give up their own collection efforts and pass the debt onto a specialized agency like APR.

Who does American Profit Recovery collect for?

American Profit Recovery collects on behalf of many different types of businesses. They service a wide range of industries, including but not limited to:

  • Business-to-Business (B2B) and commercial entities.
  • Medical and healthcare institutions, including chiropractors and dental practices.
  • Financial institutions, which might include banks, credit unions, or other lending organizations.
  • Various service providers, such as fuel/gas distributors, funeral homes, lawn care/landscaping companies, and restoration companies.
  • Educational institutions, from preschools to universities.
  • Veterinary practices, both small and large.

Is American Profit Recovery legit or a scam?

American Profit Recovery is a legitimate company. However, the frequency and persistence of their collection attempts can sometimes lead individuals to question their legitimacy.

It’s also worth noting that while APR itself is a legitimate company, scammers may sometimes pose as debt collectors. Always verify any debt and the debt collector before making a payment.

How can I remove American Profit Recovery from my credit report?

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

However, it is possible to remove a collection account from your credit history before seven years.

(While debt collectors may not want this information to be widely known, it’s your right to be informed.)

Should I contact or pay American Profit Recovery?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a debt collection agency 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.

The most effective way to deal with American Profit Recovery is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like American Profit Recovery on behalf of their clients.

Will American Profit Recovery sue me or garnish my wages?

American Profit Recovery does possess the ability to initiate legal action for unpaid debts. However, pursuing a lawsuit is typically considered a last resort, as it can be time-consuming, costly, and resource-intensive for the agency.

If APR does decide to sue and subsequently wins a judgment against you, they could potentially garnish your wages, depending on the specific laws and regulations governing wage garnishment in your state.
