Going through my credit report I noticed that my cash now has hired two collection agencies to collect the same debt. The collection agencies are National Credit Adjusters and Seattle Service Bureau. I am going to dispute this through the credit bureau but I am not sure how I explain that this item is not a valid debt since it is illegal in Texas. No one can collect this debt. Any suggestions?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
