Contact Information for Collection Agencies on Credit Report

ECS - Accounts Page

Through December 31, 2022, Experian, TransUnion and Equifax will offer all U.S. consumers free weekly credit reports through AnnualCreditReport.com to help you protect your financial health during the sudden and unprecedented hardship caused by COVID-19.

Dear Experian,

I am trying to pay off my debts with collection agencies, but I do not know who to contact as they do not send me any collection notices for my debts. Would you guys be able to provide me the telephone numbers of the collectors I need to pay off? I want to improve my credit, and I want to start by paying off all my debts.

Dear OON,

Your personal credit report lists all of your debts reported to the credit reporting company, including collection accounts. A telephone number is also provided with each account when it is available.

Order Your Credit Report to See Who You Owe

You can get your personal credit report free once every 12 months at AnnualCreditReport.com. You may also qualify for additional free reports under state law and the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

The report provides you with information about how much the collection agencies are reporting you owe them, as well. You should be able to contact them and work with each to begin repaying any outstanding debt once you have your report in hand.

Thanks for asking.
- The "Ask Experian" team

The purpose of this question submission tool is to provide general education on credit reporting. The Ask Experian team cannot respond to each question individually. However, if your question is of interest to a wide audience of consumers, the Experian team may include it in a future post and may also share responses in its social media outreach. If you have a question, others likely have the same question, too. By sharing your questions and our answers, we can help others as well.

Personal credit report disputes cannot be submitted through Ask Experian. To dispute information in your personal credit report, simply follow the instructions provided with it. Your personal credit report includes appropriate contact information including a website address, toll-free telephone number and mailing address.

To submit a dispute online visit Experian's Dispute Center. If you have a current copy of your personal credit report, simply enter the report number where indicated, and follow the instructions provided. If you do not have a current personal report, Experian will provide a free copy when you submit the information requested. Additionally, you may obtain a free copy of your report once a week through December 31, 2022 at AnnualCreditReport.
