How to Remove Financial Recovery Services from Your Credit Report

Is Financial Recovery Services hurting your credit score?

Lexington Law has helped millions of customers remove collections and other negative items from their credit reports. Let them help you too!

Who is Financial Recovery Services, Inc.?

Financial Recovery Services, Inc. (FRS) is a debt collection agency located in Superior, Wisconsin. They also have an office in Edina, Minnesota. They collect debt in the following market segments:

  • bankcard
  • installment loan
  • retail
  • service contracts
  • utilities

You may see FRS listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen when you forget to pay a bill.

How can I remove Financial Recovery Services 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.

(Debt collectors prefer that we didn’t tell you this, but it’s something you should know.)

Lexington Law is a professional credit repair company that helps people fix their credit.

In addition to collections, Lexington Law will help you challenge (and possibly remove) other inaccurate information from your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, judgments, tax liens, and bankruptcies.

Should I contact or pay Financial Recovery Services, Inc.?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a collection agency on the phone. And making payments on the collection account will reset the clock. So instead of helping your credit, it could make it worse. Of course, there are times when it’s best to just pay the collection account, especially if it’s new and you’re sure that it’s legit.

The best way to deal with a collection agency like FRS is to work with a professional credit repair service. They have deleted millions of negative items from companies like Financial Recovery Services, Inc. for millions of clients nationwide.

Will FRS sue me or garnish my wages?

It’s possible, but if you work with a law firm like Lexington Law, you have nothing to worry about. They will help you dispute the collection account and possibly remove it from your credit report. It’s also quite possible that you will never hear from or have to deal with Financial Recovery Services, Inc. again.

Wage Garnishment

Some states allow wage garnishment, while others do not. It is important to note that if you are in a state that does not allow wage garnishment, it is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to garnish your wages.

It is also illegal for Financial Recovery Services, Inc. to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on – this includes threatening to sue you or foreclose on your home.

Financial Recovery Services, 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 you find yourself facing any of these situations with a debt collection agency, you should also 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 Financial Recovery Services, Inc. does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with Financial Recovery Services, Inc.

There are strict regulations about what a collection agency can and cannot do in the United States. For example, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prevents the use of abusive or deceptive tactics to collect a debt. In addition, the FDCPA provides you with many rights to ensure that collection agencies don’t take advantage of you. In particular:

  • You have a legal right to request debt validation on an alleged debt. Send the collection agency 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.
  • Financial Recovery Services may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • Financial Recovery Services must be honest about who they are and what they are attempting to do. They must notify you that they are a collection agency both orally and in writing.
  • Financial Recovery Services cannot threaten to have you arrested, and they are not allowed to threaten to take legal action if they have no intention of doing so.
