How to Beat EOS CCA

Beating EOS CCA feels like ^^

Summary: Is EOS CCA suing you for a debt? SoloSuit can help you take a stand and win in court.

A debt collector's call can instantly disrupt your thought process and ruin your day. Texts and letters are not fun either. Whether the debt is yours or misplaced, you can act to stop the calls and outsmart debt collectors.

Most debt collectors are overly aggressive, making consumers like you feel like they have no way out. EOS CCA, for example, has earned a reputation for harassment and less than stellar customer service.

It's important to know your rights and all the options at your disposal before responding to EOS CCA. How you handle a collector's calls and letters can make a substantial difference in the health of your credit.

What is EOS CCA?

The way EOS Collection Company of America (EOS CCA) collects debt has left many consumers concerned that it could be a scam. On the contrary, it is a legitimate debt collection company that has been operating since 1991. It is headquartered in Norwell, Massachusetts, United States. They are a third-party debt collector for a variety of creditors.

If you are wondering who they are, you may want to visit the company's website. However, you will get a second opinion by checking their Better Business Bureau profile. Your fellow consumers are not happy.

EOS CCA is not BBB accredited. Consumers cite harassment, empty threats, and persistent calls.

Let's take a closer look.

EOS CCA has received several complaints

If you feel like you are being harassed by EOS CCA, you're not alone. As of 2022, EOS CCA has received 222 complaints through its Better Business Bureau profile. These complaints involve a variety of unfair debt collection practices. Some of these practices include:

  • Failing to validate a debt.
  • Reporting fraudulent debts to the credit bureaus.
  • Contacting consumers about debts that have already been paid.
  • Hanging up on consumers when asked to clarify information about the debt in question.
  • Failing to remove negative credit marks after a debt has been paid off.
  • Attempting to collect on debts that are past the statute of limitations.

Let's consider a real example:

Example: One consumer, we'll call him Jack, received a notification from EOS CCA about a debt of $63.12 that was originally due to Sirius XM Radio. Jack canceled his subscription with Sirius XM in 2021 with no outstanding balances due. When he heard about the supposed debt from EOS CCA, Jack called Sirius XM to verify that he closed his account in good standing. Sirius XM confirmed that no debt was due when Jack's account was closed, but when Jack reached out to EOS CCA about the debt, they could not verify any information without his Social Security Number. Months later, he is still receiving collection letters from EOS CCA. When he tried to reach out again, he was placed on hold for more than an hour on several occasions.

If you have a complaint against EOS CCA, you can file it with BBB. You may also consider filing a report with the FTC, CFDP, or your state's attorney general if you feel your rights have been violated.

How to beat EOS CCA

Is EOS CCA calling you? You can protect your rights with these simple steps:

  • Don't pay a debt that is not yours.
  • Use the state and federal law to your advantage.
  • Protect your information.
  • Win a lawsuit against EOS CCA.
  • Remove EOS CCA from your credit report.

Now, let's break down each of these steps in detail.

Don't pay a debt that is not yours

Debt collectors make mistakes, especially those that purchase debts from a third party. During the transition from one creditor to another, information is lost, or EOS CCA finds inaccurate information in its attempt to collect the debt.

You may be tempted to pay a debt that's not yours just to get EOS CCA off your back, especially if it's a small amount. That's never a good idea. Accounts in collections stay on your report for years and negatively affect your credit score even after payment. Instead of paying a debt before you're sure it's accurate, ask for validation.

EOS CCA should verify each debt within just five days of reaching out to you. Send EOS CCA a Debt Validation Letter. This letter not only requests that the EOS CCA investigates and confirms the debt, but it also reports the debt as disputed. EOS CCA has thirty days from the day you receive the letter to prove that the debt belongs to you.

You can contact the company through their website. Remember that they can't get back to you via email about the debt if they stick to debt collection regulations. Someone will have to call you back. It would be best to reach out to them in writing so that you can keep a record of all communications. If you prefer to call first, EOS CCA's number is (877) 395-5997.

Use the state and federal law to your advantage

The debt collection industry is highly regulated. To prevent debt collectors from infringing on your rights, you need to understand those rights.

According to the new FDCPA regulations, EOS must adhere to a strict code of conduct. Anyone contacting you about debt may not:

  • Call you repeatedly in a day.
  • Use demeaning or profane language when talking to you.
  • Lie to you.
  • Mislead you.
  • Threaten you with legal action they won't take.
  • Embarrass you by sharing details of your debt against the FCRA regulations.

Your state's statutes of limitations may also come to your defense. Every state limits the period within which a debt collector must collect the money. After that time lapses, the account is considered expired. You don't have to pay debts that are past your state's statutes of limitations.

Protect your information

Never give anyone contacting you about debt your personal information on the phone. Debt collection employees should identify you when they call. Don't feel obligated to give details about your credit accounts.

Fraudsters also pretend to be debt collectors. If you give them your information, they may steal your identity.

To protect yourself, always communicate with debtors in writing. Keep the originals of any attached documents for yourself. The mailing address for EOS CCA is:

EOS CCA,
PO Box 329,
Norwell, MA 02061

Win a lawsuit by EOS CCA

EOS CCA intends to collect money. They would prefer that you pay debt instead of taking you to court. They also cannot sue you for an unvalidated debt.

However, if you don't pay a validated debt, the company may sue you. When you receive a court Summons, you may feel defeated. Court hearings are daunting. You don't have to go through all that. Even if you can't hire an attorney, you can still win against EOS CCA when you represent yourself by filing anY Answer with SoloSuit's help.

Remove EOS CCA from your credit report

A debt collector's entry on your report is not good for your credit. There are easy ways to get them out.

Pay for delete is one such option. Ultimately, EOS CCA is concerned about debt collection. Although it may seem like they want to ruin your credit, they would prefer to make their money in the easiest way possible. Contact the company and inquire if they are willing to remove the account from your report when you pay. If they accept your proposal, you will stop their calls and repair your credit simultaneously.

If the EOS CCA account is on your report by mistake, you can dispute with the major credit bureaus to have it removed. Contact each bureau separately as they work independently. When you send a written dispute, the bureaus have a limited time to investigate and delete any inaccurate entries. Don't worry if you can't prove that the entry is a mistake. Your job is to point out the error. It's the bureaus' job to provide evidence.

Here are the addresses for each credit bureau:
