Is MRS Associates making threatening phone calls?

If you are experiencing debt collector harassment from MRS Associates, the best thing to do is contact them in writing. Never talk to them on the phone.

You’re more likely to get emotional and react in a way you might regret later on. Even worse, you could be pressured into making payments on the debt in a way that’s not in your best interest.

Alternatively, admitting to old debts may reset the statute of limitations in your state, essentially renewing the number of years you can be sued for overdue payments.

How to Deal with Calls from MRS Associates

There are a couple of ways to handle collection calls from MRS Associates. First, you can send a cease and desist letter. Once a debt collection agency receives your written request, they must stop contacting you about your debt.

In this case, the company can either drop pursuing your account altogether or initiate a lawsuit. There’s simply no way to know. However, know that it is illegal for them to threaten to sue you without actually intending to do so. Either way, they will most likely continue to report the debt to the credit bureaus.

Another option is to attempt to settle the account. You can either negotiate on your own or hire a professional debt settlement firm to help you.

Should I contact or pay MRS Associates?

Nothing good can come from speaking to a debt collection company on the phone. And making payments on the account 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 debt, especially if it’s new, and you’re certain that it’s legit.

The most effective way to deal with MRS Associates is to work with a credit repair professional. They help remove millions of negative items every year from companies like MRS Associates on behalf of their clients.

And they may be able to help you too.

Will MRS Associates sue me or garnish my wages?

It’s possible that MRS collection agency will resort to litigation when attempting to collect a debt, but if you work with a law firm like Lexington Law, you have nothing to worry about. They help you dispute the MRS Associates debt with the credit bureaus and possibly get it removed from your credit report. It’s also possible that you never hear from or have to deal with MRS Associates 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 MRS Associates to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on. This includes threatening to sue you or foreclose on your home.

Is MRS Associates hurting my credit score?

Any derogatory item on your credit report, including a collections account, may harm your credit score.

Debt collectors often buy and sell debt from one another. This can lead to multiple collections on your credit report for the same account.

If you don’t dispute each account with the credit bureaus and get them removed, they can damage your credit score.

MRS Associates Complaints

Most debt collectors 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 you find yourself facing any of these situations with MRS Associates, 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 MRS Associates does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with MRS Associates

There are strict debt collection laws and 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 debt collectors don’t take advantage of you. In particular:

  • It is a violation of federal law for MRS Associates to report inaccurate or incomplete information on your credit report.
  • You have a legal right to request debt validation on an alleged debt. Send MRS Associates 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.
  • MRS Associates may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • MRS Associates must be honest about who they are and what they are attempting to do. They must notify you that they are a debt collection agency both orally and in writing.
  • MRS Associates cannot threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned over unpaid debts.
