Pre-Legal Notice from Credit Corp Solutions

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just received a Pre-Legal Notice from Credit Corp Solutions. Basically the letter says that due to a lack of response they've placed the debt with their pre-legal department and it may be referred to an attorney. I did some research and found that this is a standard intimidation letter and they have actually been sued over this here in California.

Some back story: This account was charged off in March 2017 and sold to Credit Corp Solutions. They first contacted me shortly after. Something that's interesting is that they actually listed the debt as being $700 more than the amount that the original creditor said was owed when it was charged off.

Does anyone have any advice? I'm hoping that I can get away with not paying this company anything because I hate collection agencies.

"Lack of response" sounds like the window of opportunity for a DV has passed.  In any case, I wouldn't do anything for now.  If they sue, you can respond with a motion to compel arbitration per the following agreement:

The agreement has JAMS and says they pay all of their own fees.

I too have been hit with the same letters and now they say i have 14 days to respond or they’re sending it to the legal dept (it’s been in pre-legal dept for a year). I tried to pay the original creditor ( lending club) after 1 month late but they wouldn’t except. I don’t want to pay credit Corp because lending club is listed as charged off and my credit report has already suffered but don’t want to go to court? It’s $23k!

Hi, 

I have a same issue. Did you resolve this matter about Credit Corp? My OC was Lending Club too and back 2015. I just received a letter from Credit corp today about final notice before legal referral that if I don't response or call them within 14 days  it will referred to a law firm. Please advice. Thank You.

What state are you in, specifically? Account was back in 2015, or that's the alleged date of default or charge off or what? Pre-Legal is primarily just an intimidation effort by any collector. They like to throw that "legal" word in there to make it sound as if they are of authority to just be judge jury and executioner. But they don't have that authority.

You don't really provide much information for anyone to help you out really here. What state are you in? When is the last date of payment or date of default?
