Accounts Receivables Collections, Inc. is a debt collection agency specializing in the collection of health and commercial credit accounts. The company has three locations in South Carolina, including offices in Lexington, West Columbia and Columbia, South Carolina. The collection agency belongs to multiple professional organizations, including the Healthcare Financial Management Association. Accounts Receivable Collections, Inc. also does business as Patient Financial Services, Accounts Receivables Collections, Inc.
ARCI aggressively pursues delinquent accounts for businesses in the health care industry using automated dialers and recorded messages, as well as through aggressive dunning campaigns. ACRI frequently sends out dunning letters, which direct those with delinquent accounts to their online collection portal, which, they boast, not only accepts payments from delinquent account holders, but will negotiate for the highest one-time payment possible. The combination of automated dialers and automated debt collection software used by Accounts Receivable Collections can result in situations where supposed debtors accept a payment arrangement online for a debt they never actually owed.
Stop Accounts Receivable Collections Harassment
If you are receiving dunning letters from Accounts Receivable Collections, you can stop the harassment. Do not make any agreement to make a single payment on the debt the company claims you owe without seeing proof that you actually owe the debt. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, a federal consumer protection law for consumers dealing with debt collectors, specifies that the debt collector, in this case, ACRI, must provide proof that they have the right to collect the debt from you on behalf of the original creditor if you request that they do so.
In addition, if you demand that the company provide verification of the original debt, Accounts Receivable Collections must cease their collections activities until you have received that proof and had a chance to review it. Accounts Receivable Collections is also forbidden by law from reporting the delinquent debt to any credit reporting agency until you have received their proof and had a chance to review it.
Independent researchers have found that in more than 80 percent of cases that reach adjudication, the debt collection agency is not able to provide verification that the consumer actually owes the debt. If you receive a dunning letter from ACRI that directs you to their automated online collection service, resist the temptation to make it all go away by agreeing to a one-time payment. Instead, contact the company directly and demand that they provide you with proof that you owe the debt.
In addition, you should be aware that there are strict regulations about when and how often debt collection agencies may contact you by telephone, as well as what debt collectors may say and do in order to get you to pay. Treat a telephone call from Accounts Receivable Collections the same way you do a dunning letter. Do not agree to make any payments over the telephone. Insist on written verification from the agency that provides the details of the debt, including the full amount owed and the original creditor. Ask for the address of the debt collection agency and send a certified letter demanding that they immediately cease contacting you and provide you with proof of the debt owed.
