When it comes to financial health, a credit report with collections accounts can feel like a heavy burden. Debt collectors, like Credence Resource Management, can cast a shadow on your credit score, making it hard for you to get a loan, a mortgage or even a credit card. Maybe your financial decisions of the past were not the best, or maybe you had surprise circumstances that made it difficult to keep up with bills. But your past financial life doesn’t have to dictate your future. If you want to rebuild your credit, rest assured it is possible. This article is your guide to learn how to remove Credence Resource Management from your credit report, step by step.
Who Is Credence Resource Management?
Credence Resource Management is like a middleman in the world of debt collection. They are based in Dallas, TX and have been in business since 1988. They work with companies to increase their cash flow– which really means collecting on debts that companies had written off.
This debt collector may use annoying methods, like repeated calls or letters, to get in touch with you if you. But they are a legitimate collections company, and you should respond to their attempts to contact you. This doesn’t mean you need to pay them any money until you’ve read how to deal with this collector. Remember, you don’t even know that the account they claim is yours belongs to you. We’ll explain below how to verify the debt is actually yours.
Who Does Credence Resource Management Collect For?
Credence Resource Management is like a middleman in the world of debt collection. They work with various creditors, like telecom, television, retail, insurance companies and credit card companies. If you have an old debt with one of these companies, like an unpaid phone or electric bill from years ago, it’s possible that Credence Resource Management will contact you to collect the debt.

After Debt Validation: Dispute the Debt
When Credence sends you a debt validation, look for errors in the report. First of all, did you own this debt? Who was the original creditor and did you actually have an account with them? It is important to know that identity theft is common, and often debt collectors have not verified the identity of the account owner.
Check for other inaccuracies in the report:
- Did you pay off the debt previously?
- Is the amount they claim you owe correct?
- Is the debt past the statute of limitations in your state (usually a time period older than 7 years)
If any of these are wrong, you can dispute the debt and ask them to remove the collections account.
Negotiate a Pay-For-Delete Agreement
When it comes to tackling collections accounts, the “pay-for-delete” strategy is like a bit of a game. It requires a convincing “pitch” from you to get Credence accept this offer. It works like this: negotiate with the debt collector to pay a portion of the debt in exchange for removing the negative mark from your credit report. However, understand that not all creditors are open to this arrangement, so be prepared for potential push back. It is worth a try, however, to remove this from your credit.
