Is FBCS A Debt Collection Agency?

Yes, FBCS is a debt collection agency. They buy debt from a number of different creditors that no longer wish to attempt to collect the amount themselves (also known as a "charge-off").

FBCS may attempt to reach out via mail or phone calls (demanding payment). The worst part is a collections account will now be seen on your credit report. This hurts your score, as well as reducing your chances of getting approved for a loan or other important financial event.

But it’s not all bad news! We may be able to help you with this account. Call us today to find out more.

Understanding Debt Collection Agencies and Your Rights

Struggling with debt can understandably be a stressful experience. Debt collection agencies are firms that creditors hire to recover unpaid debts, and they do not always follow ethical practices while pursuing payment. Nonetheless, consumers have certain legal rights when dealing with these parties that protect them from aggressive tactics meant to collect on an overdue balance owed.

Consumers are protected from debt collection abuse through the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). This includes the right to dispute a debt, require verification of its accuracy and amount owed, or even request that collectors cease contact. However, taking these steps does not absolve one's legal responsibility for any legitimate debts.

Alternatives to Settling Debt with FBCS

Settling a debt with FBCS may be one way to resolve outstanding debts, but it's not your only option; other strategies may be better suited for your financial situation. Consider negotiating a payment plan with them as an alternative – this can allow you to pay off what you owe over time while avoiding any negative consequences of settling short of the full balance due.
