Who is Professional Credit Service?

Professional Credit Service or PCS  is a debt collection agency which was founded in 1933 in Layne County, Oregon. It employs over 250 people and collects health care, government, utilities, and financial solutions debt. PCS can also be a debt buyer, which means they buy debt that’s been worked over by collection departments and other collection agencies, and then track down customers and try to make them pay.

Is Professional Credit Service a scam?

They’re legit. Professional Credit Service is a legitimate collection agency with an extensive history of harassing consumers over debt. It uses a variety of skip tracing techniques, together with data analytics, behavioral science, and data from data vendors. This permits the debt collector to discover consumers and determine if a person has the ability to cover. So as to prod consumers into paying, PCS reports debt to credit bureaus and has been know to threaten to sue consumers.

Can Professional Credit Service Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?

It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely PCS would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate. However, debt collection agencies are known to have summoned debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. Contacting an attorney BEFORE this could possibly happen would be a smart move. We’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against unscrupulous debt collection harassers.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Professional Credit Service?

Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court

In 2015, a judge in U.S. District Court, District of Oregon, denied Professional Credit Service’s motion to dismiss McCurdy vs. Professional Credit Service for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer alleged that the debt collection agency sent her a letter which violated the FDCPA. While caselaw suggests that a consumer can dispute a debt orally, the letter delivered by PCS stated, “If you dispute any accounts referenced in this letter, please send all information concerning the dispute to P.O. Box 70127, Springfield, OR 97475.” The customer contended that the letter violated a prohibition against participating in collection activities throughout the 30-day interval during which a customer can dispute a debt, which prohibits false, deceptive, or misleading representations made in an effort to collect a debt. The judge refused the debt collection agency’s movement, and allowed the case to proceed.

Professional Credit Service Calling You?

Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).

But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.

    This company, who I have never contacted or answered calls, because I have no official knowledge or relationship with, continuously calls and sometimes leaves messages. Professional Credit Service claim I owe a debt that I know went into default, during a 1 year period of no employment and with-held disability insurance, due to what was to become diagnosed as Parkinsons disease.

    These defaulted debts were dropped, leaving the penalty of derogatory records.

    I became, and am now, SSDI on very little fixed income. The diagnosis by SSDI assigned doctors evaluations classifies my disability as permanent with no recovery possible.

    Even if this company of scam artists picking up on derogatory defaulted accounts and rereporting them as active collections were legitimate, I still would have the true hardship of not being capable of paying.

    They operate by practicing harassment, bullying, and deception.

    I will not contact them, because their game to reactivate debts, is to have calls picked up or returned, so that they can pickup on any word or gesture that they can contrive as acknowledgement, in order to reactivate a collections debt, which for me has been settled, and I am living with the consequences of having lost any gainful way paying, due to a permanent incurable and progressive, medically diagnosed disease and medical condition.

    I had a garnishment in the amount of $36337.11. My employer informed me last week that the garnishment has been satisfied with a bit of an over payment, $140.87. They called Professional Credit to get a letter to stop the garnishment but they say there is $8000, still owing in interest. Before I call Professional Credit, what are my rights? Can they still continue to garnish my wages for the interest? Is it reasonable for me to ask that they stop the garnishment and I can work something out with them for the interest payments? I just want to get some sense of what the law is before I call them. Thank you, Loretta
