The worst part is you now have a collections account on your credit report, which will be hurting your score. It also lowers your chances of being approved for credit (at least with good interest rates).
There are a number of ways you can go about this, but the easiest one (which we highly recommend), is to reach out to a company that specializes in dealing with debt collectors, such as Credit Sage.

If you have been contacted by 214-506-7172 regarding a debt, it's important to take action. You should confirm that the debt is yours and not passed the statute of limitations. If it is valid, think about setting up a payment plan or settlement to resolve the debt. Get any agreement in writing and keep copies of all communication. If making payments on the full amount is difficult, exploring options such as consumer credit counseling or a debt settlement company may be beneficial for your situation. Whatever route you decide to take, do not ignore their calls as this could lead to legal action being taken against you.
If West Asset Management is reporting inaccurate information on your credit report, you have the right to dispute it. Get a copy of your credit report and carefully review it. If an error is found, file a dispute with the credit reporting agency and provide any supporting documentation that backs up your claim. The agency will then carry out an investigation and update or maintain the current information based on their findings. If the decision does not go in your favor, consider hiring a credit repair company. In some cases, you may also be eligible for compensation due to damages from the inaccurate reporting.
