With over 50 complaints lodged against it, many of them unresolved or with no response at all, Credit Systems International has earned an F rating with the Fort Worth Better Business Bureau. The third party debt collector is located in Fort Worth and claims over 30 years of experience in collecting debt of all kinds. Their website provides the bare minimum of information to tell consumers where to click to make a payment and a statement that all information received will be used by Credit System International in its attempt to collect on debts.
Among others, Credit Systems International has collected past due debt for Green Mountain Energy, Texas Utilities and other utility companies, as well as numerous banks that issue credit cards.
In the past year, Credit Systems International has also been named in two lawsuits alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which provides protections for consumers against false and misleading information being added to their credit reports.
Stop Credit Systems International Harassment
Have you found an entry placed on your credit report by a debt collection agency? Are you having trouble getting the debt collector to remove an erroneous item from your credit report, or are they refusing to report that you have made payments as agreed upon accounts filed with them?
Your credit report – or credit reports – affects your life in many ways. It can impact your ability to get a job, help a landlord decide whether or not to rent to you and prevent you from getting credit cards, auto loans, home mortgages and other important loans. Because of its importance, Congress passed the Fair Credit Reporting Act to give consumers certain rights with regard to their credit reports. The most important and basic of these rights is the right to obtain your credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies for free once a year. This is a vital step in protecting your credit rating and your identity.
In addition, under certain circumstances, you are entitled to additional credit reports provided to you for free. Those include:
- A person or business has taken adverse action against you – denied you credit or refused to rent to you, for example – because of information in your credit report
- You are the victim of identity theft and place a fraud alert on your file
- Your file contains inaccurate information that is the result of fraud
- You are unemployed but expect to apply for employment within 60 days
In addition, the Fair Credit Reporting Act gives you the right to dispute inaccurate information in your credit report, requires that the credit reporting agencies investigate your dispute and requires that the credit reporting agency remove inaccurate or unverifiable information from your credit report, usually within 30 days. It also requires that debt collectors who report information to credit bureaus cooperate with investigations by the credit bureaus. Finally, the FCRA gives you the right to sue credit reporting agencies and, under some circumstances, debt collectors for continuing to report false, outdated or inaccurate information on your credit report.
A debt collector may also be violating your rights under the FDCPA – the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act – which prohibits them from calling you repeatedly and excessively with the intent to harass; demeaning, belittling or abusing you verbally; and providing information about your indebtedness to a third party without your consent.
