Someone else’s debt is on my credit report. Who do I contact?

In some cases credit reporting agencies, such as Experian, TransUnion, or Equifax, can inadvertently match the incorrect account to a consumer’s credit report. This is known as a “Mixed File.” This is not a case of fraud, but rather a mismatch issue and can easily be cleared up with the Mixed File departments within the credit reporting agencies. We have listed the toll free numbers to reach the credit reporting agencies below.

Experian: 1-888-397-3742
Equifax: 1-888-766-0008
TransUnion: 1-855-681-3196

Is my information safe?

Yes. ARCS Credit Systems maintains an extensive privacy and security infrastructure. We enforce strict controls around creditor and consumer data to ensure it is sustained in a secure environment. These data security components allow us to reduce the risk associated with the unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction of creditor and consumer data.

Do you speak Spanish?

Yes. ARCS Credit does have professional collection agents fluent in Spanish.
