A common complaint by consumers is that debt collectors continue to pull their credit even after the dispute with the collector has been resolved. In fact, you may have successfully had the information removed from your credit report, but the collector that no longer has a viable case against you continues to pull your report. What can you do?
In short, the collector does not have the authority to pull your credit. In fact, even in the case of credit accounts, it is not permissible for a collector to pull your credit report for the purpose of collection on an account that is no longer collectible.
Unfortunately, getting the debt collector to leave your credit report alone may not be an easy task. You can submit a complaint to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but to ensure timely results, you should contact us for help.
Again, it is important for you to check your credit reports for errors and to dispute any incorrect information. However, if you need further assistance challenging the actions of a debt collector or inaccurate credit reporting, call us to schedule an initial consultation and learn how we can help.
