Who is First Credit Services?

Who does First Credit Services collect for?

Is First Credit Services legit or a scam?

First Credit Services is a legitimate company. They are authorized to collect debts on behalf of their clients. However, it’s important to verify any debts they claim you owe before making any payments.

How can I remove First Credit 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.

(While debt collectors may not want this information to be widely known, it’s your right to be informed.)

Should I contact or pay First Credit Services?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a debt 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 First Credit Services is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like First Credit Services on behalf of their clients.

Will First Credit Services 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 help you dispute the First Credit Services debt with the credit bureaus and possibly remove it from your credit report. It’s also possible that you never hear from or have to deal with First Credit Services again.

Wage Garnishment

Some states allow wage garnishment, while others do not. 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 First Credit Services to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on. This includes threatening to sue you or foreclose on your home.

Is First Credit Services 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.

First Credit Services 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.

Your Rights When Dealing with First Credit Services

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 First Credit Services to report inaccurate or incomplete information about you.
  • 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.
  • First Credit Services may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • First Credit Services 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.
  • First Credit Services cannot threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned over unpaid debts.
