Who is Performant Recovery?

Performant Recovery, Inc., aka Performant Financial, is a debt collection agency located in Livermore, California. They acquired Premiere Credit of North America in August 2018.

You may see them listed on your credit report as a collections account. This can happen if you forgot to pay a bill or defaulted on your student loans and your account was sent to a debt collector.

Who does Performant Recovery collect for?

Performant Recovery specializes in collecting student loan debt and debts for state & federal government.

Is Performant Recovery legit or a scam?

Performant Recovery is a legitimate company. However, they may repeatedly spam call, text, or email you.

How can I remove Performant Recovery 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.

(While debt collectors may not want this information to be widely known, it’s your right to be informed.)

In addition to collections, Lexington Law can work with you to challenge other inaccurate, unfair, or unsubstantiated information on your credit report. These items include inquiries, late payments, charge-offs, foreclosures, repossessions, bankruptcies, and more.

Should I contact or pay Performant Recovery?

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

Is Performant Recovery 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.

Performant Recovery 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 Performant Recovery does too.

Your Rights When Dealing with Performant Recovery

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 Performant Recovery 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.
  • Performant Recovery may not threaten or harass you, call you repeatedly, swear at you, or publicly publish a list of debtors.
  • Performant Recovery 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.
  • Performant Recovery cannot threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned over unpaid debts.
