How Debt Collection Scams Work

It’s very simple: Someone contacts you — often by phone, but also by text message, fax, mail or email — and claims that you owe a debt. The debt may be completely fake, canceled, discharged, forgiven or beyond the period for collection.

In any case, the scammer will use all sorts of techniques to get you to pay — intimidation, lies, harassment, etc.

Before you pay any debt to any collector, confirm that the debt is real and valid. And be on the lookout for the signs of a debt collection scam.

Know What You Owe

One of the surest ways to avoid a debt collection scam is to know all of your real or valid debt. If someone contacts you about a debt you owe, you can quickly identify whether it’s real or fake.

Note: When you get your credit report, review it carefully for false, outdated, or inaccurate entries.
