Is First Credit Services a scam?

They’re legit. First Credit Services is a legitimate debt collection agency. It offers both early and late stage collections.

FCS’ third-party collections incorporate skip tracing, robocalling, and letters, along with credit bureau reporting.

If you’ve suffered from FCS debt harassment, you do have options. Under the law you can recover up to $1,000 for violations of the FDCPA, and $500 to $1,500 for each cell phone robocall.

Can First Credit Services Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?

It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely  FCS would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate. However, debt collection agencies are known to have summoned debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. Contacting an attorney BEFORE this could possibly happen would be a smart move. We’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against unscrupulous debt collection harassers.

    Sent certified letters in mail requesting cancellation to Anytime Fitness facility and also to the billing company regarding my membership as my agreement ended Jan 13th 2023. Was told by manager in text that he received my request to cancel. The billing company even refunded me for the months that I was billed after my contract ended. Thought it was over. But then I start getting Non-stop calls from First Credit Services saying I owe $300+ dollars. That my credit will be ruined if I do not pay. I tried to explain that I have physical proof that I canceled and was refunded. They told me I HAD to pay and that I would get in trouble legally. Now I get calls 2-3 times a day and am being harassed all times of the day. Wish I had NEVER joined that Gym. I have been dealing with this issue for 3 years. Charged for 3 years! Just want it to end. I am a single Mom. I am afraid to join another gym due to this experience.

    I have been getting calls every day multiple times a day. I tried canceling my membership at Crunch but they said they could not do it over the phone. I live in a whole other state now and could not physically do that. This was months ago. I am not sure what to do because they saw I owe 300 something and I will not be paying that but I don’t want it to affect my credit.
