Who is calling me from 502-267-7522?

The phone number 502-267-7522 belongs to G.L.A. Collection Company, Inc. — also known as GLA Collections or just GLA — a debt collection agency that specializes in medical debt.

If you’re receiving phone calls from this number, it’s because GLA Collections is seeking to collect on unresolved medical bills after purchasing them from your healthcare provider.

Is GLA Collections a legitimate company?

GLA Collections is a legitimate company and has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) since 1981. According to GLA's BBB profile. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has reported hundreds of complaints against GLA.

Many complaints allege that the GLA Collections has attempted to collect on illegitimate debt. Still others allege that GLA representatives have made repeated, harassing phone calls.

Contact GLA Collections

To contact GLA Collections, you may simply return the call at 502-267-7522. You may also contact the company by mail at 2630 Gleeson Lane, Louisville, KY 40299.

The company website also features a contact form for existing clients and debtors, though note that the verification form is intensive and requires a portion of your Social Security number.

Stop calls from GLA Collections

If you’re receiving repeated phone calls from GLA Collections, you have several options.

Report GLA Collections to the authorities

Repeated phone calls from 502-267-7522 — or any other debt collector’s phone number — may be a violation of your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). This federal law protects consumers from misleading or aggressive debt collection practices such as:

  • Failing to identify themselves as a debt collector.
  • Calling multiple times per day.
  • Calling you prior to 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
  • Threatening to arrest you over unpaid debt.
  • Continuing to call you after receiving a request to stop.
  • Calling your friends, family, or coworkers about your debt.
  • Refusing to validate your debt.

Report violations to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) using the FTC website or by calling 877-382-4357. You can also report GLA Collections through the CFPB’s website or by calling 855-411-2372.

Ask the representative to stop calling

The FDCPA grants you the right to submit either a verbal or written request that the company cease contact with you.

However, this only prevents debt collectors from calling you by phone. GLA Collections may still send you written correspondence. And if you have outstanding debt, the company may still contact you about the next steps, such as a debt lawsuit.

Request a Debt Validation Letter

Medical debt can be especially tricky since it’s hard to know what your insurance provider did and did not cover. Send GLA Collections a Debt Validation Letter. This letter should prove that you owe the debt by:

  • Identifying your original creditor.
  • Documenting the date and amount of the original debt.
  • Recording any payment history.
  • Highlighting the amount of outstanding debt.
  • Providing clear evidence that ties you to the debt.

With the Debt Validation Letter, you’re asking the collector to prove that the debt is yours. If GLA Collections can’t do that, the company may back down.

Send a Cease and Desist Letter

A Cease and Desist Letter is an official letter requesting that GLA Collections stop contacting you regarding your debt. This letter is legally binding, and the FDCPA allows you to sue any debt collector who continues to contact you.

However, a Cease and Desist Letter doesn’t end your problem. The letter helps you avoid constant phone calls from 502-267-7522, but you still owe the debt.

Settle your debt

The most lasting way to stop phone calls from 502-267-7522 is to resolve your debt once and for all. Don’t take this step until you verify your debt through a Debt Validation Letter. Once you confirm that the debt is yours, you can start the settlement process to put the debt behind you.

Example: Jeremy had been receiving multiple phone calls every day from 502-267-7522. He made sure to record the dates and times, and he reported the company to the FTC. The next time the phone rang, Jeremy requested a Debt Validation Letter and then asked the representative to stop calling. Once Jeremy learned that the debt was his, he used SoloSettle to negotiate a lower settlement amount and work toward being debt-free.
