Is CBCS Hurting Your Credit?
Credit Bureau Collection Services (CBCS) is an aggressive debt collection agency that can harass you constantly and adversely impact your credit score.
If you have had the misfortune of dealing with CBCS, there are several things you can do to get them off your back and get your credit on the road to recovery.
CBCS collections can be incredibly damaging to your credit. Collection accounts remain on your credit report for 7 years. Find out below how you can get collections removed legally and permanently.
Have You Been Getting Calls From CBCS?
If CBCS collection agency has been calling you, don’t panic. Remember, they are calling you and you don’t know who they are. 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, so make sure you put the burden of proof upon 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!
Removing CBCS From Your Credit Report
Eventually, the nightmare of dealing with CBCS will end, but your credit may continue to suffer because of them. If this is the case, you can file a dispute with the big three credit reporting agencies to get the negative marks removed.
Even if the items are valid, when you file a dispute you are putting the burden on CBCS to prove that their reporting is accurate. Often, they don’t even make an effort to respond, or else can’t find sufficient proof, so the negative items have to be deleted from your credit report.

A Real Life Success Story from One of Our Readers
A few years back I lost my job due to the downturn in the economy. I couldn’t pay my bills and started racking up credit card debt.
When I couldn’t make the minimum payments on my credit cards any longer, I started getting calls from debt collectors like CBCS Collections. I eventually filed for bankruptcy to have my debt relieved, but the process did a lot of damage to my credit.
How I Got Help
For several years I couldn’t get into a new home or buy a new car because my credit was poor. It was a very frustrating time for me.
I told my story to a friend of mine who suggested I give Lexington Law a try. He said they had been very helpful to him in the past. I was skeptical but decided to try them out.
How My Life Was Changed
After doing some research online, I called them at 1 (800) 220-0084. (You can visit their website here.) I spoke with a credit professional who was kind and compassionate. I told her about my situation and she told me about my options.
I decided to sign up right there on the spot – and man, I’m happy I did! It only took a few weeks before I could see the results. I started getting random letters in the mail saying that negative items had been removed from my credit history.
My credit scores started improving steadily. It didn’t take long before I qualified for a loan and purchased a home.
The whole process of repairing my credit would have taken much, much longer if I had tried to do it myself. I’m just grateful I called them when I did to get the help I needed (see below).
Proof of Collections Removed from My Credit Report:
My credit has dramatically improved since there are no longer any negative accounts on my credit report. Here’s a snap shot of my FICO scores:
What Others Are Saying
Two of my reports have no negative marks now and the other I know is just around the corner. Thank you so much. Life is so much easier now that I don’t have to worry about credit problems. I highly recommend your service to anyone.”
