CBJ Credit Recovery is a legitimate company. However, their persistent methods of communication, which could include multiple phone calls, texts, and emails, can be perceived as harassment by some individuals.

How can I remove CBJ Credit 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.

Should I contact or pay CBJ Credit Recovery?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a third-party 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 CBJ Credit Recovery is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like CBJ Credit Recovery on behalf of their clients.

Will CBJ Credit Recovery sue me or garnish my wages?

Like most debt collection agencies, CBJ Credit Recovery is legally entitled to sue you for the unpaid debt. If they win the lawsuit and obtain a judgment from the court, they may be able to garnish your wages or levy your bank account.

However, the specific procedures and regulations about wage garnishment vary by state and type of debt. It’s worth noting that a debt collection agency cannot garnish your wages or take money from your bank account without a court order.

Is CBJ Credit Recovery hurting my credit score?

Any derogatory item on your credit report, including a collections account, may harm your credit score.

Debt collectors often buy and sell debt from one another. This can lead to multiple collections on your credit report for the same account.

To get an account removed, you must file a separate dispute with each credit bureau; Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, or it can negatively impact your credit score.

CBJ Credit Recovery Complaints

Most collection agencies have numerous complaints filed against them with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Most consumer complaints are about inaccurate reporting, harassment, or failure to verify a debt. If a debt collector is harassing you, you may want to consider filing a complaint.

You have many consumer rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). These rights include the ability to dispute credit reporting errors and to be treated fairly and respectfully by debt collectors.

  • It is a violation of federal law for CBJ Credit Recovery to report inaccurate or incomplete information about you.
