How Should You Deal With ARS National?
Collection agencies have different names, but for the most part, use the same methods to collect debts. There are a few things you should know about collection agencies.
First of all, their information is not always correct or accurate. Second, they will go to great lengths to find who they are looking for. Finally, there are rules that they have to follow, but they can be flexible and may be willing to work with you to settle your debt or work out a payment plan.
Don’t Trust – Verify!
When you are dealing with a collection agency, it is always wise to make them verify the debt actually does belong to you before you pay them. You can do this by asking for a debt validation letter. Also, try to get them to compromise before you pay them. Remember, they want your money.
You can ask them if you can pay a lower amount or start a payment plan. You can even ask them to remove any negative items that they have reported to the credit reporting agencies before you agree to pay them. It is important to always get any agreements you make with them in writing.
Complaints made against ARS National
ARS National attempts to collect on debts that are not owed to them. Many people have complained about being called when they owed no money. Even after individuals say they do not owe the debt, ARS National will continue to call them.
ARS National will call third parties trying to find alleged debtors. They will call neighbors, ex-spouses, family members, co-workers, or anyone else they can find to track them down. They should already have the contact info of the person they are looking for, so there should be no need to call others.
This can be a source of unnecessary embarrassment for the people they are trying to collect from. ARS National representatives have refused to pass on their contact information to consumers who want to send them a cease and desist letter.
Sometimes a cease and desist letter is the only way to get collection agencies to stop calling, so they try to prevent consumers from using this valuable tool.

Bad Credit Happens to Good People
At the beginning of the recession, I was hit pretty hard. I lost my job when my company went under. My bills began to pile up and before long I couldn’t pay my minimum monthly payments on my credit cards and other items. After a while, I had maxed out my credit cards and the accounts were sent to collection agencies like ARS National Services.
The collection agencies made my life very difficult. I consistently received harassing phone calls asking me for payments and threatening to damage my credit. I couldn’t pay all of the bills I had, so I finally decided to go bankrupt. Bankruptcy helped with the collection agencies, but it did lasting damage to my credit.
A Credit Repair Lifeline
Due to my low credit score, it was impossible for me to get a loan. I couldn’t buy a house or a new car. I couldn’t even go on family vacations. Finally a friend noticed my struggles and told me to try Lexington Law Firm. He said they had helped him and he thought they could help me too.
It sounded too good to be true at first, but I finally consented to call Lexington Law ((800) 220-0084). When I called, I was greeted by the nicest lady who really knew what she was talking about. She gave me some helpful advice and I decided to sign up with them.
After I had signed up, within a month, I could see the difference, as negative items were starting to be taken off of my credit report. Lexington Law worked tirelessly to get the negative items removed from my credit report so that I could go back to having a normal life and get funding for the things I needed.
It has been a few years since I first called Lexington Law, but if I had it to do over again, I would do the same thing. They really helped me out and I’m grateful for the work they did on my behalf. (See below.)
