Who is Universal Fidelity LP?

Universal Fidelity LP (UFLP) is a debt collection agency headquartered in Katy, Texas. As a collection agency, they are responsible for collecting unpaid debts on behalf of various entities.

If you see UFLP listed on your credit report, it means they have been assigned or have purchased a debt that you allegedly owe. This typically happens when you have defaulted on a payment and the original creditor has transferred the debt to a collection agency like UFLP for recovery.

Who does Universal Fidelity LP collect for?

Universal Fidelity LP provides collection services for a wide range of debts, including automotive loans, educational loans, financial institutions, government & municipalities, and healthcare accounts. This suggests they work with a variety of businesses and entities, ranging from banks and loan providers to healthcare providers and government bodies.

Is Universal Fidelity LP legit or a scam?

Although Universal Fidelity LP is a legitimate company, they have been known to engage in repetitive and unwelcome communication through various means such as phone calls, text messages, and emails. Despite these practices, they are a legitimate business.

How can I remove Universal Fidelity LP 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.
