Who is Cox?
Cox Communications is a telecommunications company that provides digital cable television and home automation services. They are headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
You may see Cox listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you didn’t pay a bill.
How can I remove Cox Collections from my credit report?
Cox 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.)

In addition to collections, Lexington Law can work with you to challenge other inaccurate, unfair, or unsubstantiated information on your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, bankruptcies, and more.

Should I contact or pay Cox Collections?
It’s best to avoid speaking to a debt collector 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.

Is Cox Collections 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.
If you don’t dispute each account with the credit bureaus and get them removed, they can damage your credit score.
Cox Collections 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). Lexington Law knows that you have rights, and Cox Collections does too.
Your Rights When Dealing with Cox Collections
Debt collectors must abide by state and federal laws in the United States. For example, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits a debt collector from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices. In addition, the FDCPA provides you with many rights to ensure that collection agencies don’t take advantage of you. In particular:
- It is a violation of federal law for Cox Collections to report inaccurate or incomplete information on your credit report.
- You have a legal right to request debt validation on an alleged debt. Send the debt collection company a debt validation letter. By law, they have 30 days to prove to you that the debt is really yours and the total amount is accurate.
- Cox Collections may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
- Cox Collections must be honest about who they are and what they are attempting to do. They must notify you that they are a debt collection agency both orally and in writing.
- Cox Collections cannot threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned over unpaid debts.
