How to Settle an Unpaid Debt and Clean Up Your Credit Report?
There are several ways to settle if CCS Offices contact you. You can:
- Just write a check and pay off the debt that CCS Offices has called you about.
- Get a personal loan, settle the debt, then pay off the loan according to the agreed terms.
- Get an interest-free credit card, use the balance to pay off the debt, then pay off the credit card as soon as possible.
- Discuss, and agree on, a payment plan with CCS Offices.
If you know you have paid off the debt CCS has contacted you about, you should learn how to, and then send, a debt validation letter. Once everything is paid, or if you dispute a debt, you will want the collection detailed in your report to be removed. Knowing how to remove collections from your credit report is one thing, but getting them removed may not be so easy.
How to Dispute a Collection on Your Credit Report
Collection notices and delinquent debt history can remain on your credit report for seven years. You want to dispute anything incorrect as soon as you can. Your four main options are to:
- Submit a dispute to the credit bureaus if you disagree with the record. You can do it online or by mail.
- Ask your creditor to agree to delete the record if you pay off the debt. This is known as a pay-for-delete request. Then pay it off as soon as possible.
- Contact your creditor, apologize for the delinquency, and ask them to make what is called a goodwill adjustment. If your creditor agrees, they will remove the record from your report. You will still be liable to pay the debt.
- Dispute any error with the company that says you owe money or with CCS Offices, if they contact you before you learn of the error.
Getting an error-corrected can take time and may not be resolved to your satisfaction. All during this period, the error on your credit report will be seen by any company you apply to for new credit.
What if the Dispute Is Not Resolved?
If CCS Offices or the company in question does not resolve the dispute, you will need to enter into a lawsuit against the company and their collection agent. The court, if you are successful, will require the error to be corrected, and you may receive compensation for damages. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) gives you this right. You may also choose to complain to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and then sue under Section 1681s.
