Is Merrick Bank Corp 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 Merrick Bank Corp?

Merrick Bank Corp is a privately held company headquartered in South Jordan, Utah. They have nearly 3 million active credit card accounts and have extended over $5.3 billion in credit.

Merrick Bank offers two credit cards to consumers: the Platinum Visa and the Secured Visa. In addition to credit cards, they also provide personal loans, certificates of deposit, and consumer finance options to marine, RV, and horse trailer dealers.

You may see them listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you defaulted on a Merrick Bank credit card or loan.

How can I remove Merrick Bank Corp 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.

(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 can also help you remove other inaccurate information such as inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, judgments, liens, and bankruptcies from your credit report.

Should I contact or pay Merrick Bank Corp?

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 Merrick Bank Corp for millions of clients nationwide.

And they may be able to help you too.

Will Merrick Bank Corp 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 credit bureaus and possibly remove it from your credit report. It’s also quite possible that you will never hear from or have to deal with Merrick Bank Corp again.

Is Merrick Bank 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.

Merrick Bank 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 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). Lexington Law knows that you have rights, and Merrick Bank Corp does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with Merrick Bank Corp

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 Merrick Bank 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.
  • Merrick Bank may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • Merrick Bank 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.
  • Merrick Bank 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.
