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.)

In addition to collections, Lexington Law helps you challenge (and possibly remove) other inaccurate information from your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, bankruptcies, and more.

Should I contact or pay Paragon Contracting Services?

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.

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 Paragon Contracting Services to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on. This includes threatening to sue you or foreclose on your home.

Is Paragon Contracting Services 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.

Paragon Contracting Services 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.
