Who does CST Company collect for?
CST Company does not explicitly explain who their clients are on their collections website. Therefore, no information is currently available about CST Company’s clientele and their specific area of collections. While we know that CST Company works within debt collection, there is no information provided about who the company specifically collects for or what area of collections they work within. Because of this lack of clarity it is incredibly important that you verify your debt with CST Company and discuss the account. Acquiring this information is important because due to the outsourcing of debt, one collection account can turn into many reporting on your credit file if the debt is not dealt with.

Ultimately, it is illegal for CST Company to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. However, CST Company can choose to sue or garnish wages after a default judgement. Therefore, a collection company would likely choose not to sue you for unvalidated debt, but it is the wisest option to contact an attorney preemptively to ensure the safety of your assets and rights.

A complainant explains that CST Company has been continuously contacting them about a past due trash bill. According to the complainant, this bill gets paid automatically every single month and their trash service never stopped. The complainant claims that if they did not pay this bill, money would not be taken out of their account and their trash would not be picked up every week. On top of alleging that this complainant owes debt which has not been proven, the complainant claims that this collections company has also been harassing them with constant letters and phone calls and even “had the nerve to send a deputy from the sheriff’s department to issue a citation.” Due to the fact that the complainant claims that they have paid this fee and are not in debt, this harassment should not be occurring.
