Monterrey financial collection is reporting to the credit bureau incorrectly. I need help removing them from my credit. They are increasing the amount. There are many layers to the situation. Will someone please give me a call to let me know if help is available.

I see that you guys have several cases against Nationstar Mortage. I am a coborrower on a Mortage loan modification that was done without my signature and they refuse to remove my name. The borrower is my exwife and divorce was final in 2012 but the modification was done in 2016. On the loan my name is lined out but I’m still on the modification. Can send the paperwork if needed for your review. I’m a 100% disabled veteran and being on this loan is hindering me from obtaining a home I can modify as my health changes. I’m in an apartment with lots of stairs which causes problems most days. Please help or direct me where to go.

Michael Agruss Headshot

Collectibles Management Resources stated they had me served by a company name Action Legal at a home located in Fresno sometime in 2006 or 2008. I am unsure since I was never served. I was never served, but Collectible Management Resources or BK Pharmacy their client yet Collectible Management Resources went to a Fresno County Court and illegally received a judgement against me. I see another person said this occurred to on the BBB website, so I felt compelled to report this to them and to get an Attorney. I may owe the $1,000 to BK Pharmacy, but how they obtained the judgement was illegal, and the amount they sought is more than I owe BK Pharmacy. My bank account is public record, so my Bank Account has been compromised for many years now. Collectibles Management Resources is falsifying process server records to obtain a default judgment against people like me which they seek to collect a debt. I believe falsifying a process server records is criminal and this seems so I really need an Attorney. I believe the process server records from Action Legal were falsified on me in 2006, because I was never served. I have no idea how to get this resolved with the Fresno County Courts 14 years later, since I have lived in Arizona for over 10 years now. I feel my only means is to speak to an Attorney about Collectibles Management Resources criminal practice to obtain a default judgment against consumers they are collecting debts for their customers. The worse part is when they continued to lie and filed another 10 year extension on the first judgement they received in default when they faulsified a Court process server document. I was not notified of the extension they filed, just like I was not served with the notice to appear it court. They have caused damage to my credit with the judgement they illegally obtained for over 14 years. I pray Fresno County law enforcement or the FBI look into their criminal practice to collect debts. Rather a criminal case is filed against them or not. I need an Attorney to handle this for me.

Due to identity theft, I was issued a new Social security number. Which should report as 0. Some how Experian is reporting bad information on my new Social security number. My old number was so hacked that the government issued me a new one, for a new start... Experian however keeps reporting negative items that should not be associated with my new number. I have called them, which is a joke. They want me to send in a copy of my new card and my new driver's license so they can link the old to the new.... they refuse to get rid of the errors on the new number.

i bought a refrigerator and a set of washer and dryer on november of 2019 the total of the purchase was over 6,000 on november of 2020 i was almost going to finish paying it off because i was giving more then the normal payment so when i was about to pay it off because my balance was about 2400 i was oin shock the balance was way higher it was 5098.00 so basically i was almost starting over again. i called them and they said my agreement was over they said i had to paid that off in 12 months so that was not what the sales man told me when i did the purchases he said because of that large amount i had 2yrs to pay it off. so they said they were going to try and wave that interest so i called a few days later and they said there is nothing to do that i would have to pay all that money so im going to end up paying like $12,000 its very frustrating.

Hello, I have a collection account with Alpha Recovery Corp for an Upstart Loan of $8k two years ago. The debt is real...I took it out when we were remodeling our house to make room for a new baby, then the baby was born, and I forgot to make a couple payments in a row (can I blame being a new dad? Either way, it was my fault). I tried to pay Upstart, but by that point they'd already sold the debt. Now Acme owns it and I'm getting calls. If possible, I'd like to arrange some kind of pay-for-deletion of the record from my credit report, but I'm not sure where to start, or the best way to go about it. I have one smaller collection account from a credit card I forgot about at the same time for $1k. Would like to do the same there if possible.

Michael Agruss Headshot

Hi Kevin. I would be happy to discuss the two accounts that are on your credit report as delinquent. Pay-for-deletion is possible, however there are risks for going that route, which we can discuss as well. My phone number is 312-224-4695. Please give my office a call when you've got some free time to chat. Thanks, Mike

I need help getting out of debt. I have a few debt collectors calling me all the time. I want to get out of debt and build a decent credit score, but I have bad anxiety and speaking with these debt collectors is so uncomfortable. I have student loan debt that has defaulted, two closed credit card accounts, and most recently I have some medical debt. The medical debts are from an auto accident that I was in a few months ago while riding in a taxi. I'm working with a different law firm for the auto accident, but that will likely take a long time so in the meantime I still need to make payments on many accounts as a result of the accident like ambulance, er bill, radiology, etc. I'm really terrible with finances and need help dealing with the crippling debt. I've contacted you previously about a debt collector harassing me, however they finally stopped calling me after I asked them to stop about ten times.or so, I just dropped it. Bills are starting to pile up and I need help with all these.

Michael Agruss Headshot

Hello Daniel. I would be happy to help you. Dealing with debt collectors can induce anxiety in even the strongest people, so I understand that it makes you uncomfortable.

Nationstar is abusing clients again. They're soliciting programs of payment to catch up (1 payment) while reporting my and another delinquent non-payers. Never not paid and not late if I am in a deferment program. So they report. Here read what I submitted earlier by system form for interest. Nationstar and USAA did not find a mistakenly or otherwise Stop Pay on all future mortgage payments so the checks were denied for this reason for over 2 weeks. I sent my payment several times over this period. Not a peep about Stop Pay while USAA researched. I was in earnest paying and trying to pay AND they put me in a payment plan for the missing amount on or about the 20th Dec 2018. Problem now: They are reporting both homeowners as late and nonpayers. I called Nationstar and they simply said "We're allowed to still report". How am I delinquent at all?? Additionally, II do NOT remember filling out a Stop Pay for all and future mortgage payments -absurd. Its not too long. The problem with my credit report, it has dropped 65 points because of Nationstar looks unrecoverable or bankruptcy!
