Useful Links for Debt & Collections

Post by Quiethawk on Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:28 pm

Here are some links to some general information pertaining to debt collection that I personally found to be extremely helpful in handling my own credit messes: From the old site...

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA):
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre18.shtm

Statute of Limitations On Debt Information:
http://www.fair-debt-collection.com/statue-limitations.html

Privacy Rights Clearinghouse:
http://www.privacyrights.org/fs/fs27-debtcoll.htm

Free Credit Reports and Information About Freezing Your Credit Files:
https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp

Bud Hibbs, Consumer Advocate:
http://www.budhibbs.com/am_worst_collection.htm

At this site, you can look up info on collection agencies (names, locations, ratings):
http://www.consumerjustice.com/consumer/debtcollectors.aspx

This site is targeted toward commercial credit, collections and finance professionals (their perspective, but good info for consumers)
http://www.credit-to-cash-advisor.com/Articles/Collections/SuingaDebtor

I HIGHLY recommend checking and placing credit freezes on your credit files with Equifax, TransUnion and Experian (I did this 2 years ago). I also learned about a new agency called Innovis. I ordered my credit report from them, and they had INCORRECT info about me that I had removed. I also froze my credit file with them. You can get info about them here:

Thanks for re-posting this here, Quiethawk. I was having difficulty finding my original post at the old U-F forum.

I hope this information has been helpful to people.
