How to Get Javitch Block Off Your Credit Report
Javitch Block LLC is a law firm specializing in debt collection. Like millions of other Americans, you use a credit card. You may also make a large purchase to be paid off over the long term, or you get something and get billed later. Utility companies and hospitals work like that. You mean to pay, but something happens, and you start to miss the payments. When that happens, a company like Javitch Block steps in to collect the debt.
Millions of Americans' credit reports show a late payment, a delinquent payment, or a collections notice. Sometimes they are mistakes. Credit bureaus do not know if errors have been made, so they appear on a credit report. On top of that, those mistakes can result in people who have not missed payments becoming targets of debt collectors like Javitch Block.
Credit Report Mistakes Happen for Three Main Reasons:
- Settled debts simply stay on file as unsettled.
- Someone else's debt gets posted to the wrong person's report.
- Current debts get bundled in with bad debts and sold to credit collection companies. The debt collector then pursues payment and puts a collection notice on your credit report.
That unfair collections notice can negatively impact you, and you cannot get new credit or pay a higher interest rate. Many employers check credit reports before offering someone a job, and a collections notice could sound an alarm bell, resulting in no job offer unfairly.
Even if you have missed payments, there are ways to have a late payment, delinquent payment, or the Javitch Block collections notice removed from your credit report. You can do it all yourself, or you can
How to Stay On Top of Your Credit Report
You are entitled to a free copy of your credit reports from Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion once a year. When you get your reports, it may help you to learn as much as possible about improving your credit score. Hard inquiries on credit reports, which lenders often make before giving someone new credit, can affect credit scores. It is, therefore, a good idea to know how to remove inquiries from your credit report.
If you find a mistake in your report, you will want to dispute it. To do that, you will want to know how to write a dispute letter. There may be valid late payments on your report. If there are, you can still improve your credit score if you know how to remove late payments.
Everything you do can help you to fix your credit score. We will now look more closely at Javitch Block, LLC. You will find it easier to work with them if they do contact you or if you want to dispute an error or have something deleted.

The initial response to someone who claims a mistake has been made is to require that person to give very detailed information to prove it, to make sure they are not using that reason as an excuse to avoid paying. This is why learning as much as possible about credit reports and errors is so essential.
JB may offer a recurring payments option to clear the debt over an agreed period owed. JB will accept regular checks mailed to their office or set up an automatic payment from a bank account.
How to Settle an Unpaid Debt (And Clean Up Your Credit Report) If Javitch Black Contacts You
If a Javitch Black agent calls you, remember that all phone calls will be recorded. Ask for the agent's contact details. Be calm, logical, and detailed. Ask for a copy of the conversation to be mailed to you if the matter goes to court.
There Are Several Ways to Settle:
- Agree to write a check for the total amount immediately. The agent will give you the mailing address, etc.
- Agree to settle the debt in a specific timeframe. Get a personal loan or a new, interest-free credit card. Settle the debt, then pay off the loan following that agreement.
- Discuss, and agree on a payment plan. JB will send an agreement to you explaining what to do and how the money you owe will be repaid.
What You Can Do if the Debt Has Already Been Paid or Was Added to Your Account in Error
If you know you have paid off the debt, you should:
- Tell the Javitch Block agent when you settled the debt, how much the final payment was, and where you sent the payment.
- Say you will send a debt validation letter. You can learn about debt validation letters here.
- Have the agent say they will confirm your letter and reply, saying the debt has already been settled.
- Have the agent confirm that JB will remove the erroneous collections record from your credit report at all credit bureaus.
If JB refuses to accept the validation letter or remove the record from your report, you will have to deal with that problem, or the record will stay on your report and could damage your creditworthiness. You will find it helpful to learn how to remove collections from your credit report.
How to Dispute a Collection on Your Credit Report
You should dispute anything incorrect on your credit report as soon as you see it. Collection notices, delinquent debts, and missed payments can stay on your credit report for seven years. That could mean if you had a late payment one year, an outstanding debt the next, and an error the next, you could have ten years of bad news on your report. Your four main options to remove records are for you to:
- Send a notice of the dispute to each credit bureau that shows the notice. You can contact each bureau via their webpage, or you can use recorded delivery mail.
- Ask your creditor to delete the record if you pay off the debt. Some debt collection agencies refuse to do this but try anyway. This request is called a pay-for-delete request. Then pay it off as soon as possible and check if the record has gone.
- Contact your creditor and ask them to make a goodwill adjustment. If your creditor agrees, they will remove the record from your report. You will still be liable to pay the debt. Again, most debt collection agencies will not agree to this.
- Dispute all errors with the creditor or Javitch Black if they contact you.
Getting errors corrected can take time. While you are disputing the error, any company you apply to for new credit will see your credit report. So get to work as soon as possible.
When the Dispute Is Not Resolved
If Javitch Block does not fix the error, your next step is to go to court. If you are successful, the court will make sure they correct the error. You may also receive compensation for damages.
If the court is your final option, you should learn as much about your rights as possible under The Fair Credit Reporting Act. FCRA gives you the freedom to sue to have your good name restored. You may also file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and then go to court.
