Summary: Is DRS Credit suing you for a debt? SoloSuit can help you take a stand and win in court.
DRS, or Dynamic Recovery Solutions, was established in 2008 and has a combined 50 years of debt collection expertise. DRS is a recovery company that collects debt on behalf of a creditor who believes you owe them money. As a result, you may receive harassing phone calls, several past-due notifications, and threatening letters.
Dynamic Recovery Solutions is a collection agency and a debt buyer licensed all across the country. It uses a collection letter series and skip tracing as part of its collections strategy, and it is currently located at:
Dynamic Recovery Solutions, LLC
135 Interstate Blvd.
Greenville, SC 29615
Phone Number: 844-735-9451
Many individuals wonder if Dynamic Recovery Solutions is a fake company. Although you may be tempted to doubt DRS Credit's business tactics, it is a real debt collection agency.
If you demonstrate to the company that you are aware of your consumer rights, it will not violate the law. However, DRS debt collectors may attempt to instill worry and concern in you to get you to settle the old debt and stop the collection calls.
Dynamic Recovery Solutions collects delinquent debts for businesses and industries such as telecommunication service providers, automotive lenders, utility service providers, healthcare and medical service providers, banking and financial services providers, consumer retail lenders, and education lenders.
A number of state-specific disclosures required by law can be found on DRS Credit's consumer rights page. However, its website does not provide links or references to consumer protection services, laws, or enforcement agencies.
If you're feeling frustrated by Dynamic Recovery Solutions, you're not alone.
In the past three years, Dynamic Recovery Solutions has received 290 complaints on its Better Business Bureau profile. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau received 481 complaints against DRS Credit in the same span of time. Most of the complaints concerned the following actions by DRS: reporting incorrect debt information to the credit bureaus, not providing required information about the debt in question, and other violations of the FDCPA.
Let's take a look at a real example.
Example: One consumer who we'll call Sara received dozens of calls and letters from Dynamic Recovery Solutions about a medical debt that her health insurance paid off years before. DRS reported the debt to the credit bureaus, and Sara's credit score dropped dramatically. Nothing was fixed until Sara submitted a formal complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
The process of removing a collection account from your credit report is not as difficult as it might initially appear. Listed below are three steps you can take to restore your credit score.
Now, let's break down each step in detail.
Request that DRS exclusively communicate with you by letter. According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), you have the right to control the terms of your contact with a creditor or collector.
Through mailed communications, DRS does not have a way to communicate with customers early in the morning or late at night. On the other hand, written communication provides evidence if DRS fails to meet its expectations.
When debt collectors make promises or agreements over the phone, they don't always keep track of what they say. If you file a complaint, the case reviewer may discover that there is no proof that your agreement ever existed. If this occurs, you're right back where you were.
Keeping everything in writing can help you verify you entered into an agreement and fulfilled your half of the bargain if necessary. Furthermore, you would be able to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission or the Better Business Bureau if you had written documentation.
Having established written contact, ensure that the debt you are disputing is yours and correct. A credit report error affects one out of every five Americans. Consequently, some of the information on your credit report may not be yours. Be sure to verify that the debt belongs to you.
According to the FDCPAt, you have the right to ask a debt collector to verify that the debt is indeed yours. The law requires Dynamic Recovery Solutions to notify you within five days of making contact about your right to verify the debt. If they don't, you should send a Debt Validation Letter to DRS Credit, requesting debt verification.
If DRS cannot establish that you owe them money, request that the collection be dropped in your letter. You should seek validation within 30 days of your first contact with the agency for the best results. DRS may not respond to you if you send your letter after 30 days.
If you discover that the debt is not yours, you must dispute it in writing to Dynamic Recovery Solutions and the credit bureau. The debt should be promptly removed from your credit report since it's not yours.
Even if you pay off collection accounts in full, they might negatively influence your credit score. That is why a pay-for-delete arrangement should be negotiated in advance.
As its name implies, a pay-for-delete agreement does precisely what it sounds like. The debt collection agency offers to remove the collections account from your credit report if you pay your bills, or a part of your debt, within a certain period of time.
Paying half of the debt to Dynamic Recovery Solutions will clear your credit record and allow you to keep your credit score. Ensure that you have a written agreement in place before making any loan payments. Be sure your contract does not leave room for ambiguity, as agents may try to get around this commitment by using complex language.
Please make the terms clear and concise, such as "DRS will delete this account from my credit records with all three credit reporting bureaus if I pay (a dollar amount) on this account (account number)."
After you've made the payment, wait 30 days to check your credit report. Dynamic Recovery Solutions should have contacted the credit bureau and requested that the collections account be deleted from your credit report within that timeframe.
