Dena Standley | October 19, 2022

Summary: Is a debt collection agency contacting you about a debt you owe? Here's SoloSuit's list of debt collection agencies and some tips on how to stop them.

The United States has over 7023 debt collection agencies. The $18.8 billion industry generates more fraud reports to the FTC than any other industry does. Abusive debt collection practices hurt financially vulnerable consumers. Often, consumers pay collectors money they don't owe, falling deeper into debt.

It's normal to wonder if the collection agency you're dealing with is legitimate. Below, we have listed some of the major debt collections agencies across the country, their contact information, and their BBB rating.

A debt collection agency must always provide all the details

Be careful not to give any money until you are sure your debt is being paid and that you are not being scammed. Collections agencies must validate a debt within 5 days of contacting you about it, otherwise, they are violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Send a Debt Validation Letter to find out which creditor passed your debt on to the debt collection agency, exactly how much you owe, and if your debt is past the statute of limitations.

Make a debt collection agency prove your debt is valid

Under the FDCPA, all debt collection agencies must validate a debt within 5 days of contacting you about it. If you don't receive a debt verification from them that outlines information about the debt, you can mail a Debt Validation Letter which forces them to either validate it or cease collection efforts.

In order to validate a debt, a debt collection agency must provide the following information:

  • The amount of the debt.
  • The name of the creditor.
  • The collector will assume the debt is valid unless the consumer sends them a Debt Validation Letter within 30 days.
  • If you send the collector a Debt Validation Letter they will need to mail you validation of the debt.
  • If you send them a Debt Validation Letter they will need to mail you the name and address of the original creditor.

If you've been contacted about a debt that you don't owe, don't just sit back and wait for the collection agency to sue you. Fight back now by making them verify the debt.

SoloSuit can help you draft a Debt Validation Letter in minutes.
