LVNV Funding LLC is a collection agency that works for creditors to collect on charged-off debt accounts. However, most of the time LVNV appears to forward their accounts to various other collection agencies and attorneys for collection instead of managing the accounts themselves. If you want to know what to do if you find LVNV listing on your credit report or how they treat consumers, check out the topics given below:

How LVNV Funding treats consumers and reports credit information

Check out these LVNV Funding complaints made by community members and guests in the DebtCC forum.

Filing lawsuit for wrong debt: One consumer reports that LVNV Funding LLC has filed a lawsuit against his old mother for a bill which she didn’t owe. The lady had no idea as to which company has transferred credit information on her name to LVNV. Learn more…
No response to validation letters: Debtors complain that they receive repeated phone calls from the attorneys associated with the CA but when they send validation letters, the CA or the attorneys do not respond. One consumer sent a validation letter to one of the attorneys and after 2 months, he received a letter of response from a different attorney. However, the amount mentioned in the letter of response was similar to the amount demanded by the attorney to whom the validation letter was sent. Check out these further details…
Account re-entry on credit report after 7 years: LVNV Funding LLC may purchase a default account from a creditor and then report it on your credit report as a new charge with a new date. This may happen even though the negative listing has stayed on the credit report for 7 years and is about to be erased from the report. Learn more…
Reporting debts which are not owed: Many believe LVNV Funding LLC harasses people for money and reports outstanding balances to the credit bureaus even though consumers may not owe the money. Find out more…

One consumer is said to have received a summons even though the CA promised to look into the matter when they were sent the validation letter. However, the papers were not stamped or signed by a court clerk. A few days later, the consumer learned that his wages would be garnished. But he couldn’t just verify whether he actually owed any money. Learn the details…
Issue with disputed account: A consumer received a call from LVNV Funding LLC for the money he owed on an MCI account. The CA couldn’t give him the account number, phone number, and other account details. The consumer had received a bill earlier from MCI, but he had refused to pay it and had disputed the amount.

However, LVNV made sure that the account showed up on his credit report even though it had been more than 7 years. The consumer asked the CA to co-ordinate with the credit bureau so that his credit report showed “Account disputed”. But LVNV didn’t agree and insisted that they would only clear his credit up if he would settle the bill. Find out more…

I noticed on my credit report that there is a company called LVNV Funding LLC for $3195. The address and phone number are PO Box 10584, Greenville SC 29603-0584 and the LVNV Funding LLC phone number listed is 866-464-1183.

When I enter the lvnv funding phone number, (866) 464-1183 on the BBB website, it comes up with a Houston, TX address.

Has anyone dealt with this company? Have you heard of lvnv funding complaints?

Thanks

Call the bureau and confirm address of LVNV funding if you are in a fix. Do you owe anything to this company? If so, write a letter about settling this account. The stay of this account in your CR is hurting your credit rating.

If there is no legitimate reason for LVNV Funding LLC to stay in your credit report, then you should place a dispute with them and get the account removed from your file. Here is a letter that you can use to clarify the matter:

Quote:
YOUR NAME
ADDRESS
CITY, STATE, ZIP CODE

CREDITOR NAME
ADDRESS
CITY, STATE, ZIP CODE

Date:

To Whom It May Concern:

My credit rating was negatively affected by your entry to the that showed a past due status of my account with you. Therefore, I request that you submit a statement to that reflects the actual status of my credit report.

Thank you for your attention to this request.

Sincerely,

Your Name
Be sure that you have sent this letter certified with return receipt requested.

kchriste, be sure to check the statutes before you make any payment towards the account or sign a promissory note. Check the date of last activity and see if it is within the statutes.

Under no circumstances, you will be forced to pay the debt to LVNV funding if it is past the statutes. However, if the stay of this account is too far from the 7 years mark as per the FCRA, paying it off will be improving your scores.

If it’s a legitimate debt, don’t roll it further. Consider paying it off at one single time. It will only improve your credit worthiness. You are already trying hard to improve your ratings. Any constructive steps taken will be helpful to your credit worthiness.

Unfortunately we cannot pay it off at one time. I know that would be better for us to do but we just don’t have that money laying around or else I would. That’s why I try and do as much as we can to take care of these things.

Elaina, you must visit the office of the local County Clerk and see if there is any legal judgment in your name. Check whether the plaintiff is LVNV Funding LLC Collections.

Normally, in case of a legal judgment, court papers are served 20 days in advance to attend the hearing. Were you served any such court papers? Also, please check the latest copy of your credit report and see if it’s shown on there.

Without the legal papers, the judgment won’t be considered legal. The company might have framed a letter putting some legal affect in it.

I am very sorry to hear about your situation. You can take some restitution program and see if you can qualify for it.
