Is Grimm Collections 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 Grimm Collections?

Grimm Collections, Inc. (GCI) is a debt collection agency located in Tumwater, Washington. Founded in 1945, they collect for Washington State businesses, municipalities, and healthcare facilities.

You may see them listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you forgot to pay a bill and your account was sent to a debt collector.

Removing Grimm Collections from Your Credit Report

Collections can hurt your credit score and remain on your credit report for up to 7 years regardless of whether you pay it or not. Unfortunately, paying the collection could even lower your credit score.

However, it is possible to have a collection account removed from your credit report before 7 years.

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

Lexington Law Firm is a 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 Grimm Collections?

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.

The best way to go about handling this is to work with a professional credit repair service. They have deleted millions of negative items from companies like Grimm Collections for millions of clients nationwide.

And they can help you too.

Will Grimm Collections 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 get it removed from your credit report. It’s also quite possible that you will never hear from or have to deal with Grimm Collections again.

Call Lexington Law to learn how they can help you avoid lawsuits and remove negative items from your credit report that will significantly improve your credit scores.

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 them to threaten to garnish your wages.

It is also illegal for Grimm Collections to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on – this includes threatening to sue you or to foreclose on your home.

Grimm 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 complaints are about inaccurate reporting, harassment, or failure to verify a debt. If you find yourself facing any of these situations with a collection agency, you may also 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 Grimm Collections does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with Grimm Collections

There are strict regulations about what a debt collector 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 any debt, whether or not you actually owe it. In addition, the FDCPA provides you with many rights to ensure that collection agencies don’t take advantage of you. In particular:

  • Debt validation. Under the FDCPA, you have the right to validate a debt. Upon request, the collection agency reporting the information must prove to you, within 30 days, that the account is really your responsibility and the amount of money you owe is accurate.
  • All personal debts are covered, including personal credit cards, auto loans, household bills, and mortgage payments.
  • Grimm Collections may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • Grimm Collections must be honest about who they are and what they are trying to do. They must notify you that they are a debt collection agency both orally and in writing.
  • Grimm Collections 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.
