If you have received a call or letter from 866-637-6196 about a debt you owe, it is essential to take action quickly. Start by confirming that the debt is yours and accurate. Next, get in touch with the debt collector to arrange for repayment plans or settlement agreements. Be sure to obtain any agreement in writing, and keep records of all communication.
Also, it's essential to be aware of your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Debt collectors are forbidden from using abusive or deceptive tactics such as harassing phone calls, threats, or misrepresenting the amount owed. If a debt collector violates your rights, file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau--or consult with a consumer rights attorney.
If you detect that Financial Asset Management Systems (FAMS) has made mistakes in your credit report, taking steps to rectify the issue is crucial. Begin by flagging the error with the credit bureau that sent out the report. Provide any proof you have to back up your claim of inaccuracy, such as payment receipts or account statements.
Furthermore, contact FAMS directly and inform them about the mistake. Request for them to update the details with the credit bureaus and document all communication in written form.
It's essential to remember that under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, disputing any false information on your credit report is your right and it can help improve your credit score and financial security when successfully corrected.
