Who is CBCS?
Credit Bureau Collection Services, Inc. (CBCS) is an aggressive debt collection agency with locations in Columbus, Ohio and Jacksonville, Florida.
You may see them listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you owe a creditor money and they’ve hired someone to collect that money.
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 may even lower your credit score.
However, it is possible to have it removed before 7 years and you may not even have to pay it.
(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 may be able to help you fix your credit. You may not even have to pay any of the debts on your credit report.
In addition to collections, Lexington Law may also be able to help you remove other inaccurate information from your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge offs, foreclosures, repossessions, judgments, liens, and bankruptcies.

Should I contact or pay CBCS?
Nothing good can come from contacting a collection agency. And making payments on the debt will reset the clock. Not only will it not help your credit, but it could actually make it worse.
The best way to go about handling this is to contact a professional credit repair service. They have deleted millions of negative items from companies like CBCS for millions of clients nationwide.
Have You Been Getting Calls From CBCS?
If CBCS collection agency has been calling you, don’t panic. Make sure they can provide details for the bills you owe and the account information is correct.
Debt collectors are after your money however they can get it. But, the burden of proof is on them to show you actually owe what they say you owe.
Many times their information is wrong and they try to collect a debt that doesn’t exist or accounts that have been paid in full.
Validate the Debt First
If you think CBCS is off-base by trying to collect from you, the first thing you should do is to ask them for a validation letter.
In addition to the validation letter, you may also consider sending them a cease and desist letter, or filing a complaint against them with your state’s attorney general office or the FTC.
Try to Make a Deal
If a debt collector like CBCS is able to show you that your debt is valid, try to get them to make some concessions before you pay them. Again, they just want your money, and to them, some money is better than no money.
Ask them if they will accept payment of a lower amount to settle the account. Also, ask them to remove any negative marks that have already been reported to credit bureaus before you pay them – sometimes they will agree to this. Whatever they may agree to do, be sure to get it in writing!
