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.

Removing Merrick Bank Corp 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 is a 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.

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). It’s because they often report accounts inaccurately and/or for harassment. If you are being harassed by a debt collector, 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 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 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:

  • It is a violation of federal law for Merrick Bank Corp to report inaccurate or incomplete information on your credit report.
  • 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.
  • 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 trying 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.
