The best way to handle this is to work with a credit repair professional. They delete millions of negative items every year from companies like Global Credit and Collection Corp for millions of clients nationwide.

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 Global Credit & Collection Corp to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on—this includes threatening to sue you or foreclose on your home.

Is Global Credit & Collection Corp hurting my credit score?

The missed payments that led to the collection harm your credit score. A collection account on your credit report further reduces your ability to qualify for new credit.

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

When this happens, if you don’t dispute the accounts with the credit bureaus and get them all removed, they will harm your credit score.

Global Credit & Collection Corp 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 Global Credit & Collection does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with Global Credit & Collection Corp

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.

  • It is a violation of federal law for Global Credit & Collection Corp 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 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.
