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.

You may see IC System listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you didn’t pay a bill.

Who does IC System collect for?

IC System collects debts for clients in the following industries:

  • communications companies
  • financial services
  • government organizations
  • health and dental
  • small and medium businesses
  • utility companies

Is IC System legit or a scam?

IC System is a legitimate company. However, they may repeatedly spam call, text, or email you.

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.

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

In addition to collections, Lexington Law can work with you to challenge other inaccurate, unfair, or unsubstantiated information on your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, bankruptcies, and more.

Should I contact or pay IC System?

It’s best to avoid speaking to a 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 IC System is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like IC System on behalf of their clients.

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 aid you in disputing the collection account with three major credit bureaus, with the possibility of having it removed from your credit history. It’s also possible that you never hear from or have to deal with IC System again.

Call Lexington Law to learn how they can help you.

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 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 credit 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 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

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 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 debt collector both orally and in writing.
  • IC System cannot threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned over unpaid debts.
