Is Main Street Acquisition debt collection shown on your credit report? This New York debt buyer purchases old credit card accounts from banks, and then its lawyer tries to collect the account balances from consumers in Brooklyn & Queens.
One tactic Main Street Acquisition debt collection may use is reporting the account as a negative trade line on your credit report maintained by Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. This can prevent you from obtaining a loan or affordable housing. Any financing you are able to obtain may have a lower credit limit and be subject to higher interest rates and annual fees.
Perhaps even worse, negative credit reporting may pressure you to settle a debt you don’t even owe.
