Wakefield and Associates Complaints
This business currently sits with roughly 950 complaints filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (or CFPB) and over 300 with the Better Business Bureau. Many complaints are about inaccurate reporting and/or lack of response to debt verification requests.
Want to see what one of their complaints looks like? Here’s one we found that you might like: “I have contacted the creditor multiple times due to the fact that there are 2 of the EXACT same accounts, but different amounts. BOTH accounts were paid by insurance at the time services were rendered. NOT ONLY THAT, but the COLLECTIONS AGENCY is charging interest. that is NOT legal. That was not in the original agreement. I did not agree to or sign any documents on this matter. They should not be accruing interest. I have tried multiple times to settle this information and have it be corrected / removed. I am in the process of consulting a lawyer because i know my rights, and i know what WAKEFIELD & ASSOCIATES is doing is wrong, unethical and illegal.” Unfortunately, Wakefield & Associates is known for buying debts that are invalid, inaccurate, and/or unverifiable. But if you don’t know the laws to fight them, you might be out of luck (because they won’t help otherwise).
In the end what you should take away from the above is that 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.
