How can I remove Valley Empire Collection from my credit report?

Should I contact or pay Valley Empire Collection?

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.

Wage Garnishment

It is also illegal for Valley Empire Collection to make any claims they cannot or will not follow through on. This includes threatening to sue you or foreclose on your home.

Valley Empire Collection 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.
