Things You Must Know Before Paying A Debt Collector

Before agreeing to pay when you are going through Firstsource Advantage debt collection, there are a few questions you must ask yourself. Let’s consider five of these good questions:

  • Is the Firstsource Advantage calling you at the wrong time? As a debtor, do you know that the appropriate time for a debt collector to call you is between 8 am to 9 pm? If the debt collector calls earlier than that or later than that, they have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and you have the right to take the matter up with the debt collector.


  • Do you really owe a debt in the first place? Firstsource Advantage can call you over a debt you don’t know anything about or one that you have already paid or settled. It could be an error on their part, a scam call, or a case of identity theft. Follow up the issue immediately by defending yourself and proving you do not owe them a dime.


  • Is the debt expired? There is something called the Statute of Limitations. It is the amount of time a debt collector has to sue you over any debt. Usually, Firstsource Advantage will sue you only when the debt is still active, but they might also try to when the debt is already expired. Know your rights, this is Firstsource Advantage debt collection harassment and the FDCPA will not overlook it.


  • Are the calls too frequent and disturbing? First Source Advantage can be quite persistent, this does not mean you should switch off your phone completely. Speak with the debt collector and reach an agreement on how you will pay and that the debt collector shouldn’t bother you with too many calls as you work towards paying off your debt.


  • Should you pay the debt? If the debt is yours, you should. No one would like to be owed money and not be paid back. But if the debt is expired and they don’t call for it anymore, you might as well just work on getting it off your credit report.

Having answered these questions, you can now process how to tackle the debt payment with your debt collector.
