Should I contact or pay NCO Financial Systems, Inc.?

NCO Financial Systems, Inc. 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 NCO Financial Systems does too.
Your Rights When Dealing with NCO Financial Systems, Inc.
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 NCO Financial Systems 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.
- NCO Financial Systems may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
- NCO Financial Systems 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.
- NCO Financial Systems cannot threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned over unpaid debts.
Avoid the phone. Never talk to a debt collector on the phone. The less they know about you, the better.
Politely tell NCO Financial Systems it’s your policy to deal with everything in writing. Ask for a letter with details about the original debt, then hang up. If they keep calling, send them a cease & desist letter.
Record their phone calls. If you must deal with a debt collection agency on the phone, record them. Thirty-five states and the District of Columbia allow you to record your phone conversations secretly.
In the other 15 states, you can record with the other party’s permission. If you tell the debt collector you intend to record, and they keep talking, consider it permission. They will usually hang up.
Don’t believe what they say. Debt collection companies are known to make false threats, lie, and tell you whatever they need to tell you to get you to pay the debt.
Don’t attempt to hide money. Hiding money or assets from a legitimate debt collector is illegal if you owe them. However, bank account and credit card information should be kept private.
Don’t ignore them. You can do things on your terms, but ignoring the situation will not make NCO Financial Systems go away. Ignoring them sets you up for a possible lawsuit.
Know Your State’s Statute of Limitations. Each state has a statute of limitations on debt. Once your debt reaches a certain age, it is considered “zombie debt,” and you are no longer legally obligated to pay it. The age limit varies from state to state, but it’s typically around 4-6 years.
A collection agency is still allowed to contact you about these debts, but they can no longer sue you for them, and you are not required to pay them.
