Remove Innovative Recovery from Credit Report and Boost Your Score
If you're thinking about disputing a debt that's now in collections, you need to know what to expect and what you're up against. U.S. debt collection alone is huge. In fact, as of 2022, in the U.S. there are over 7,000 debt collection agency businesses.
Like other collection companies, can certainly negatively impact your credit score and remain on your credit report for up to seven years. And, believe it or not, your credit score can get even lower by paying the collection. The good news — DoNotPay has your best interest at heart and can help you remove that Innovative Recovery debt from your credit report.
Having a good credit score will help you when it comes time to:
- Take out a student loan.
- Apply for an automobile loan.
- Rent a new apartment.
- Take out a mortgage on a house.
- Sign a new phone contract.
- Get car insurance or a utility turned on without a huge deposit.
- Apply for a credit card.
- Apply for financing for medical or dental care.
If your credit score is low, or you have negative items on your credit report, it can keep you from being able to benefit from these and other things where your credit score and credit report are looked at and determine your approval status.
What Is Innovative Recovery?
is a type of debt collection that can go on your credit report. They buy your debt from a type of creditor like a credit card company or a loan company. They may try communicating with you by phone or mail to seek payment from you. And, if they land on your credit report, it can harm your score and hinder your chances of being approved for future credit, like loans, a mortgage, or new credit cards. It may be in your best interest to get this debt removed from your credit report, particularly with DoNotPay's help.
Can You Dispute an Innovative Recovery Debt?
Disputing an Innovative Recovery debt is very possible if you believe the information they are reporting is inaccurate. It could be that Innovative Recovery bought someone else's debt that they're attributing to you now. You're not going to pay another person's debt.
Even if the debt is yours, it's not a guarantee that Innovative Recovery is reporting the correct information about your debt. They may even have mixed up some paperwork when they bought your debt — this is possible. They may be reporting more debt than you truly owe. Any of these things are possible and you'll want to dispute it promptly by sending Innovative Recovery a debt validation letter.
What Is a Debt Validation Letter?
A debt validation letter is a letter that's sent to debt collectors when there is suspicion that a debt trying to be collected doesn't exist. Sometimes, the debt may exist, but the amount being claimed is being questioned. In either situation, it would be in your best interest to send a debt validation letter for several reasons:
Proof of Debt
Sending a debt validation letter will force the collection agency to prove the amount of debt you owe. This is putting it on them to show proof, instead of you having to prove you don't.
They might not be able to furnish the paperwork that shows you even owe a debt. This could automatically get the charge removed from your credit report.
You'll be able to gain clarity on the exact amount of debt you truly owe. Sometimes this information can be unclear.
How to Dispute an Innovative Recovery Credit Report?
If Innovative Recovery is reporting debt information that is inaccurate or fraudulent, you can dispute the claim successfully and have the credit collection agency remove it from your credit report. Disputing the debt can be done through phone, mail, or online. Once they receive your dispute, they'll investigate the matter and if they decide the reported information is indeed inaccurate, then they'll remove it from your credit report.
If, after you dispute the debt, they don't take any action, there are other steps you can take:
- Start a new dispute with extra information that you didn't include in the last dispute.
- Contact the president or CEO to expedite your complaint.
- Reach out to Innovative Recovery directly.
- File a complaint with the proper agencies.
For example, you can file a credit report complaint through the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau:
|Online||Consumer Financial Protection Bureau|
|Phone Number||1-855-411-2372 or 1-855-729-2372|
|Mailing Address||CFPB, P.O. Box 4503, Iowa City, Iowa 52244|
- Consider suing Innovative Recovery.
