Is Convergent Outsourcing harassing you over a debt? Stop the harassment. Get Money. And you won’t pay us a dime for our services. Whether you owe the debt or not, you are protected under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Convergent Outsourcing is one of the largest third-party collection agencies in the United States. Formally known as ER Solutions, Convergent Outsourcing employs approximately 2,300 employees in 12 offices. Convergent Outsourcing provides collection services to the following industries: hospitals and health systems, banks and financial institutions, retailers, telecommunications, cable and satellite, utilities, and commercial creditors.
According to its website, Convergent Outsourcing is “skilled at dealing with debtor resistance to paying their obligations and use proven strategies and collection techniques to encourage voluntary payment in compliance with applicable law, regulation and client policy.” However, according to its track record, Convergent Outsourcing’s collection activities shed a much different light when analyzed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
The FDCPA has protected consumers since 1977. The FDCPA is a federal law that applies to every state. In other words, everyone is protected by the FDCPA. The FDCPA is essentially a laundry list of what debt collects can and cannot do while collecting a debt, as well as things debt collectors must do while collecting a debt.
Between November 2011 and June 2015, Convergent Outsourcing has been sued over 275 times. That does not include the 260 times ER Solutions has been sued. It does not get any better for Convergent Outsourcing on the Better Business Bureau, either. First, Convergent Outsourcing is not BBB accredited. Second, in the 3 years prior to June 2015, Convergent Outsourcing had 1121 BBB complaints. Lastly, according to the BBB:
On January 14, 2013, BBB recognized a pattern of complaints from consumers regarding billing and customer service issues. Consumers allege they are billed by Convergent Outsourcing Inc for a debt they do not owe; when they call the creditor, they get confirmation they do not owe anything. Consumers claim they receive numerous calls from Convergent Outsourcing Inc, but when they attempt to return the calls, they cannot reach an operator and must leave a message. Consumers also allege the company will not send a copy of the collection letter when requested.
Convergent Outsourcing is working with BBB in an effort to eliminate the underlying cause of the pattern of complaints.

I have been receiving phone calls and letters in the mail from Convergent for the past 10 years requesting payment of an invalid debt. I have repeated told them the debt is not valid. I have repeatedly written a statement response telling them debt is not valid. However nothing I do will stop them form harassing me, about an invalid debt.
I've been called by Convergent Outsourcing about my 2009 taxes. They said something about my taxes for 2009, but I couldn't make it out. I turned in my '09 taxes. I need them to stop calling me. I really need your help.
I get calls all the time that are recorded messages now I got an alert on my credit from transunion.
I have been receiving debt collection letters at least 3 or 4 times a year for the past 16 years to settle an outstanding account. It was a checking account and was closed in good standing 16 years ago. I get harassing phone calls in spurts. They may call several times a day for 2 weeks then they don't call for a month. When I call, they ask for the last 4 digits of my ss#. That's where I stop. No where in my credit report does this show up and never has. I am tired of being harassed by these people.
Several months ago, my mother called me from Florida. (I live in AZ) She was very upset, she was getting calls from a collection agency looking for me. I told her at the time to ignore it as my credit was fine and I had no outstanding debt. They called her twice, and she said that I did not live there. On October 7th I rec'd a robo call from an 855- exchange claiming that it was an attempt to collect an outstanding debt. I hung up. On 10/11, I rec'd a collection notice in the mail from Convergent Outsourcing in Renton, WA claiming that I owe Capital One over $2300.00, but giving me the "Opportunity" to settle for just over $350.00. In searching the Internet, this appears to be a very common practice of this company.(I'm sure you'e aware of these solicitations.) While I indeed had a Capitol One card, it has been over 20-25 years ago to the best of my recollection, so this is not my debt. I also perused a credit report from Experian and apparently they had don e a "Soft" inquiry on April 17th of this year. Under normal circumstance I would just ignore these idiots, but as they upset my elderly Mother, all bets are off... If applicable, I would be interested in taking action against this company and can provide you with whatever documentation you require.
It sounds like Convergent Outsourcing is harassing you on a debt you do not owe. About 20% of my clients are being harassed over debt they do not owe. It also sounds like Convergent Outsourcing is calling you using an autodialer. If a human being was actually calling you, they'd speak to you when you answer the phone. This must be so frustrating for you. I'll call you so we can further discuss your rights on the phone. I'll help you stop the calls from Convergent Outsourcing.
Hi Bob, Convergent Outsourcing uses several different numbers to call consumers. If you'd like the calls to stop, I'll help you send a cease and desist letter. We can discuss your rights further on the phone. Thanks. Mike
I get calls from 7 different phone numbers. I called once an they asked if they had called. I said yes. They would not say anything. I am sure this is not legal and would like to sue then for the $1000 and also the robo calls
This number continuously calls and many times there is no one on the other end when you answer. It calls all times of day and night and I have no idea who exactly they are trying to collect from. I have received numerous calls in reference to someone else's debt that does not live here (or if they did live here, I don't know anything about it.
