How to Remove IC System Inc. From Your Credit Report

Is IC System Inc. 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 IC System?

IC System, Inc. is a debt collection agency located in St. Paul, Minnesota. They provide accounts receivable management out of offices in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Who does IC System collect for?

Even though IC System shows up on your credit report they are often representing a client who believes that you owe them money. These clients include industries such as health and dental, small and medium businesses, communications companies, utility companies, financial services, and government organizations.

You may see IC System listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you owe a creditor money and they’ve hired someone to collect that money.

Is IC System legit or a scam?

IC System is a legitimate company. They were most likely assigned your debt (or bought your debt) from one of the companies they work with. However, just because they are legit, doesn’t mean you actually owe them anything.

How can I remove IC System from my credit report?

IC System 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, bankruptcies, and more.

Should I contact or pay IC System?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a collection agency on the phone. And making payments on the debt 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 certain that it’s legit.

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 IC System for millions of clients nationwide.

And they may be able to help you too.

Will IC System 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 with the three major credit bureaus and possibly remove it from your credit report. It’s also quite possible that you may never hear from or have to deal with IC System 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 a debt collector to threaten to garnish your wages.

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

Is IC System hurting my credit score?

The three credit bureaus, Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion, issue credit scores based on your history. This information can dramatically affect your ability to buy a house, qualify for a credit card or loan, rent an apartment, or even get a job.

If IC Systems has reported a delinquency to any of these credit reporting agencies, it can negatively affect your credit score. You may have trouble qualifying for financing, and even if you do, you’ll likely be subject to higher interest rates and lower credit lines. That is unless you are able to remove IC System from your credit report.

IC System Complaints

Most collection agencies have numerous complaints filed against them with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Complaints of their collection efforts range from receiving six to ten phone calls per day to tactics such as skip tracing. Needless to say, it may not be easy to have them removed from your credit report.

Reporting you to three credit bureaus is only one way that IC System collection agency will use to attempt to collect a debt. Other measures include sending direct mail, contacting you by phone, or referring your case to an attorney.

Harassing Phone Calls from IC System

IC System may call you, sometimes several times a day. These calls, often automated robocalls, continue until you answer the phone.

IC Systems may also leave you voicemail messages several times a week. Federal law does not specifically limit the number of phone calls that they can make, only that they may not harass you.

IC System tells their customers that these phone calls, attempting to collect on a debt, can go on for up to two years. They may even attempt to reach you by calling you at your place of employment, calling you at work attempting to shame you into complying with them.

Your Rights When Dealing with IC System

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 a debt. 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 IC System 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.
  • IC System may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • IC System 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.
  • IC System 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.
