Who is Credit Center Inc?
Credit Center Inc. (CCI) is a debt collection agency based in Danbury, Connecticut. The company assists creditors in collecting unpaid debts from individuals who have defaulted on their payments.
If you see Credit Center Inc listed on your credit report, it typically means that the company has taken over a debt you owe, often due to non-payment.
Who does Credit Center Inc collect for?
Credit Center Inc primarily offers its services to the healthcare industry. The company collects medical billing debts and other related medical debts on behalf of healthcare providers in Connecticut and western New York. They aim to recover unpaid bills from patients who have received medical services but have not paid the owed amounts to the healthcare providers.
Is Credit Center Inc legit or a scam?
Credit Center Inc is a legitimate debt collection company, operating within the legal confines of the debt collection industry. However, as with many debt collection agencies, their methods can sometimes be viewed as aggressive. They may frequently contact you by phone call, text, or email in an effort to recover the debt.
How can I remove Credit Center Inc 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 Credit Center Inc?
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 Credit Center Inc is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like Credit Center Inc on behalf of their clients.
Will Credit Center Inc sue me or garnish my wages?
Credit Center Inc (CCI) does have the legal right to sue you for an unpaid debt. If they choose to do so and win the lawsuit, they might then be able to garnish your wages or levy your bank account, depending on the laws of your specific state.
However, most debt collection agencies view litigation as a last resort due to the cost and time required. Prior to any legal action, CCI is likely to attempt to recover the debt through less drastic measures such as phone calls, letters, and negotiating payment plans.
If you do receive a summons for a lawsuit, it’s crucial that you don’t ignore it. Failure to respond could result in a default judgment being entered against you, potentially giving CCI the right to garnish your wages or take other collection actions.
Credit Center Inc 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.
