Harris and Harris is a debt collection agency. They're probably on your credit report as a 'collections' account. This usually happens when you forget to pay a bill. If a collection is on your credit report, it's damaging your credit score (unless removed).
You may not have to pay your debts.
Paying your debts may not help your credit, either. In fact, paying may lower your credit score.
(Debt collectors hate us for sharing this information.)

Fortunately, you have options. Credit Glory has successfully disputed collections from Harris and Harris and companies like them for thousands of clients nation-wide.

Harris and Harris Complaints
This business currently sits with roughly 535 complaints filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (or CFPB) and over 121 with the Better Business Bureau. Many complaints are about inaccurate reporting and/or lack of response to debt verification requests.
A common mistake we see with clients is thinking the collection company must provide the contract with signature, “I have submitted a certified letter to this creditor requesting validation of this debt and I specified please provide the name, address, and telephone number of each person who personally verified this alleged account, so that I can inquire about how they verified without providing any proof, bearing my signature. This creditor failed to provide that documentation. The only information they sent was my name, the account number and the amount owed.” Unfortunately, this isn’t necessarily the case. But there are many other strategies that do work that can be used. On the other hand, that would require reading the entire FCRA & FDCPA, which is daunting to say the least!
This means working with a professional like Credit Glory to challenge your negative accounts has a good chance to get them deleted, improving your score and allowing you to qualify for the home, car, and credit cards you need.
