Who Is 866-380-5171?

866-380-5171 belongs to Credit Control. They’re a debt collector reporting a collection account on your credit report.

This can mean two things:

  1.  They’ve purchased your debt from the original creditor and are now calling you to collect it.  
  2. They don’t own the debt themselves but are being paid to collect on behalf of another company for a large commission.

The worst part is that you now have a collections account on your credit report, hurting your score and lowering your chances of being approved for credit (at least with reasonable interest rates).  This one creditor could get in the way of you buying your first home, buying a car, obtaining a business loan, securing employment or renting an apartment.

How Can I Get 866-380-5171 to Stop Calling Me?

There are several ways to go about this, but the easiest one (which we highly recommend) is to contact a company specializing in dealing with debt collectors, such as GreatCreditFast.

  •  They will stop calling you

Are you getting calls from 866-380-5171? This number is related to a debt you owe. Ignoring these calls won’t resolve the issue, so it’s best to address the debt and develop a plan to handle it.

One approach is to negotiate a payment plan with your creditor or the collection agency, allowing you to make smaller, manageable payments over time. Another option is to request a debt validation letter from the collector, which requires them to prove the debt is yours.

For more guidance, consider contacting a credit counseling agency or debt settlement company. They can advocate on your behalf and help you navigate this challenging situation.
