National Credit Adjusters - What do consumers allege against them?


National Credit Adjusters, LLC is a collection agency (CA) located in Hutchinson, Kansas. It is a privately owned company specializing in collection of delinquent account receivables.

A majority of the debts collected by National Credit Adjusters collection agency are old payday loans. Many of the consumers who have shared their complaints on the DebtCC forums have accused the CA of collecting on illegal payday loans, reporting them on credit report, etc. As most of the problems discussed in these complaints stem from payday loans, it seems relevant to look at the reasons why you should never take a payday loan in the first place.

Why should you avoid taking a payday loan?

Given below are some of the reasons why you should avoid taking a payday loan:


  • High costs: Payday loans are unsecured debts and you do not have to go through credit check to qualify for them. This is why the interest rates on this type of loans are quite high. The average annual percentage rate (APR) on a payday loan can be as high as 300-400%, while the APR on a standard credit card is only about 12% or so. Apart from the high interest rate, the lenders also charge you finance fees which can often be higher than normal.
  • Short repayment time: You usually have a very short time to repay the loan. The loan amount along with the fees can take up a good amount of your next paycheck. It leaves you with the same problem that actually forced you to take a payday loan. Some lenders may offer you installment plans if you fail to repay the loan on time. But it hardly helps you as the interest rate they charge on these plans are outrageous.
  • Terms not disclosed: Some payday lenders include hidden terms in the loan agreement and these can really rip you off. For instance, a hidden term may allow your lender to double the fee for any kind of late payment you make.

How do you avoid taking a payday loan?

There are situations when you might be desperate to take a payday loan to meet certain expenses. But considering the risks involved in payday loans, it could be worth your while to check out some alternative options while avoiding a such a loan. You can borrow from your friends and relatives or can ask your employer for an advance on your next paycheck. If you have to spend extra money in a month, try to control your monthly expenditure and cut your budget accordingly. You should also build up an emergency fund to help you get over a sudden financial crisis without getting caught in a payday loan trap.

Sorry I havent been around in a while, but any help on this would be great. I had an internet pdl that defaulted many months ago for I lost my job. The pdl was UPFRONTPAYDAY.COM. They had sold my debt to a collection agency called National Credit Adjusters. My loan was for $300 and they now want $760. My issue is that the collection agency reported it on my credit report. When I filed a dispute with Experian, they came back to me saying they looked into my dispute and according to the collection agency it is a valid debt. How can I get this off my Credit Report legally since the IPDL is illegal in my state of New Jersey.

Even if the PDL company is doing an illegal business in your state, you are still responsible to pay the principal amount borrowed. I believe you have asked the documents from the CA to confirm about their legitimate collections.

Did you sign anything in writing with the loan company? You may go through the fine prints and verify the charges when the account is in default. The CA is not allowed to charge more than the permissible fees. If they fail to validate the account, show copies of your letter to the CRA and explain that the CA is illegally reporting in your file since they have failed to validate when requested. You need to have proof to get them off from your credit copy.

Near the end of your report, there should be a list of creditors addresses. If they are not listed, call the crdeit reporting agencies and ask them for the contact info

Kile, are you too dumb to realize that if a person has been laid off work and has no income, then they can't pay their bills? These people are not deadbeats! If you have a job, be thankful, you could lose it tomorrow.

Sub: #9 National credit adjusters rip off!
Tue, 05/19/2009 - 16:59

Unfortunetly I've been recieving calls from them. About a credit card I had. 5 or 6 years ago I had paid it off all at once when I got my tax return I missed a payment so I expected the fee. Then I canceled the card on the same phone call. Hadn't heard anything from them since. I told the woman that and she said that it was most possable but that it may have generated another fee at midnight then another and so on. My total with all fees and interest was over 2000 dollars but they could settle for just under 400. And avoid leagle action. That the superiors needed an answer or take me to court. I told them I'd try to get back to them that we are going through some difficult times right now. Spoke with the hubby and I believe that it is unfair that I have to pay bout the same amount as before but was told I HAVE to pay it. Why? This debt was already paid years ago. Now it's some rude guy whome seems to be walking a very thin line on my answering machine. Worse and worse. What's going on?

Get together the proof that you paid already and tell them "see you in court".

Don't pay a dime of a debt that is not yours.
