Your reaction when EOSCCA first contacts you ^^

Summary: EOSCCA is a legitimate debt collection agency based in Massachusetts. EOSCCA collects for all sorts of creditors and lenders, including banks, student loan providers, and telecommunications companies. So, if you see EOSCCA on your credit report, you probably owe someone money, and there is a chance EOSCCA will take you to court to recover the debt.

Receiving a notification in the mail that you owe money to a debt collector can be exasperating. You may be going along with your regular day — working, taking care of your family, or just handling normal activities.

That notice can be enough to change a sunny day into a stormy one. This reality is especially true if you don’t know who the debt collector is or what the debt is for.

If you receive a debt collection notice from EOSCCA, you likely won’t recognize them. Included in their letter should be information related to the debt that you may owe.

This information should include the original lender, the account number, and the amount of the debt. However, before succumbing to the debt collection letter and simply paying it off, make sure that this is a legitimate debt that you do, in fact, owe.

You can do this by checking your personal records. In many cases, debt collection agencies purchase thousands of aged accounts from creditors for small amounts.

In some cases, the accounts receivable team at the original lender may not have applied your payment to your account, or they may have provided the incorrect contact information to the debt collection agency. There are also instances of identity theft where someone else opened an account in your name and didn’t pay it off.

In this guide, we’ll explain who EOSCCA is and how they practice debt collection.

Who is EOSCCA?

EOSCCA is a debt collection agency that is based in Massachusetts. They work with numerous lenders and businesses, including banks, education lenders, and telecommunications companies. If you receive a debt collection notice from EOSCCA, it could potentially pertain to just about any type of debt.

Originally founded in 1991 as Collection Company of America, EOSCCA was renamed in 2001 to become the U.S. arm of the EOS Group, a worldwide accounts receivables collection and financial services provider.

If you receive a notice that you owe a debt from EOSCCA and you don’t recognize it, it’s important to dispute the notification as soon as possible. Typically you have 30 days to do so.

What should I do if I am being harassed by EOSCCA?

If you feel that the debt collection practices that are being implemented by EOSCCA are unfair, you have rights. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) prevents collection agencies from engaging in harassing or abusive collection activities. These behaviors include:

  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Contacting you repeatedly throughout the day
  • Using threatening language, such as profanity
  • Implying that debt collection letters are part of the legal process
  • Threatening to damage your reputation
  • Implying that you committed a crime

If you experience any of these behaviors or other actions that seem to be abusive, you can put a stop to it by filing a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. In some cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the company.

What if I receive notification of a lawsuit from EOSCCA?

When you receive a complaint from EOSCCA intended to notify you of a lawsuit, you need to respond as soon as possible. If you don’t believe that you owe the debt, you should provide an answer that requires EOSCCA to validate that you do, in fact, owe the debt.

You should require that EOSCCA provide the appropriate documentation that they have the right to sue you and that you are the person responsible for paying back the debt.

If you allow the lawsuit to progress without either repaying the debt before the court date or providing an answer to the complaint, a default judgment may be entered against you.

A judgment can impact your credit report, leaving you unable to obtain future loans or enter into a lease. In addition, EOSCCA will be given the right to pursue further legal action against you. This action may include garnishing your wages, placing a lien on your property, or freezing your bank account.

Let’s take a look at an example.

Example: Katie is being sued by EOCCCA in New Jersey for an old credit card debt. She uses SoloSuit to respond to the lawsuit with an Answer before the New Jersey deadline, which is 35 days. In her Answer document, Katie denies most of the claims and lists several strong defenses with SoloSuit’s help. A few weeks later, Katie is relieved to hear that the lawsuit has been dismissed because EOSCCA didn’t have enough evidence to prove all their claims.

Can SoloSuit help?
