Who is BRG Collections?
BRG Collections, LLC, also known as Bison Recovery Group, is a debt collection agency that is based in Roswell, Georgia. Their role is to recover unpaid debts that have been assigned to them by various creditors.
If you notice BRG Collections or Bison Recovery Group on your credit report as a collections account, it typically indicates that you owe a debt that has been transferred to them for collection. This usually occurs when a bill remains unpaid for a significant period.
Who does BRG Collections collect for?
BRG Collections works on behalf of a wide range of businesses and entities to recover unpaid debts. These could include financial institutions, healthcare providers, utilities companies, and others. BRG Collections essentially works as an intermediary between these businesses and individuals with outstanding debts.
Is BRG Collections legit or a scam?
BRG Collections is a legitimate company. However, as with many collection agencies, they may engage in persistent tactics, such as frequent phone calls, text messages, or emails, in their attempts to collect a debt.
How can I remove BRG Collections 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 BRG Collections, LLC?
It’s best to avoid speaking to a 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 this is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like BRG Collections, LLC on behalf of their clients.
Will BRG Collections sue me or garnish my wages?
BRG Collections has the legal authority to sue for unpaid debts. If they successfully win a lawsuit, they could obtain a court order to garnish your wages or levy your bank account.
However, the decision to sue a debtor is often complex and costly, and it’s generally reserved for instances where the unpaid debt is substantial and there’s a reasonable expectation of collecting on that debt.
