What Happens if I Ignore a Debt Collector?

Ignoring a debt collector can be done, but it can also lead to further action against you when you don't pay off the debt or agree to a payment plan. In many cases, ignoring a debt collector will lead to your debt being escalated to a judgment in court. However, if you are nearing the statute of limitations on your debt, it may be wise to not contact the debt collector because once the statute of limitations has run its course, there is little that can be done by the debt collector or the original creditor to continue to make contact with you.

Can I Send a Demand Letter to Debt Collectors?

Sometimes debt can be attributed to the wrong person. If you feel that a debt collector is coming after you for a debt that you are not responsible for, you can write a letter to the debt collector to get a debt verification. This will tell you whether the debt is really in your name and how it came about. You may also send a letter to a debt collector to get them to stop contacting you whether the debt is valid or not.

How to Respond to a SAR and Associates Debt Collector

  • Verification that the debt is yours before you are sure
  • Payment information before a settlement or payment plan is reached
  • Bank account or credit card information
  • Additional contact information beyond the address and phone number they already have
  1. Stop Future Attempts at Contacting You. No matter whether the debt belongs to you or not, you still have the right to contact a debt collector to get them to stop contacting you. When you stop contact, they may take the debt to the court.
  1. Planning to Pay. If you are willing to pay part of the debt or create a payment plan to pay the entire debt, you can contact the debt collector to see what your payment options are.
