Are you being harassed by Fidelity Information Corporation over a debt? Whether or not you owe the debt, you are protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Stop the harassment now and get money damages without paying for our services.
The FDCPA has protected consumers since 1977. This federal law protects you from unfair or abusive debt collection practices through clear rules about what debt collectors may and may not do while collecting a debt, as well as things they must do under law.
Founded in 1992, Fidelity Information Corporation is a nationally licensed collection agency based in Los Angeles that also serves as an information provider and an automated billing provider. Fidelity Information Corporation serves finance companies, attorneys, product distributors, retailers, employers, lenders, landlords, and more.
Fidelity Information Corporation's staff includes lawyers, private investigators, and collection professionals who utilize skip tracing, asset location, and aggressive collection tactics to collect on debts.
Fidelity Information Corporation has several divisions that serve different types of clients at various stages of collection. The Direct Debt Collections is only available online and is available to creditors that allow the client to send customized collection letters to debtors and report them to credit bureaus.
The Judgment Collection division utilizes tracing and private investigators to locate, monitor, and confiscate assets from judgment debtors with no prior notice. Judgments in the U.S. are generally effective for many years. Thus, Fidelity keeps files open and active until the debt is repaid or the debtor declares bankruptcy.

Fedelity assert has been calling and threatening me about a debt I owe. I did a online loan with this company. I was so in debt that my bank closed my account!
We have a 1yr rental contract. Due to change in our financial situation, I got laid off at the end of May. We notified our landlord Mid July 2016 that we can no longer afford to pay for our rent and need to move out. We gave them over 30 days notice to rent out their place. We moved out 2 days before end of Aug 2016 and trying to be fair we paid for Sept rent although we did not live there. They used our deposit to fix up their place to list it for sale. And supposedly trying to rent it out at the same time. The landlord still wants us to pay for rent although we don't live there anymore while they are trying to sell their property. We just received a letter from "fidelity information corporation" for debt collection. My husband and I both have great credit and hate for this to ruin our credit. What are our options? This has never happened to us before. We do not feel the landlord are being fair. Although they pretend that they are trying to rent out their place, we feel that they want to sell it and since they can't sell it they are making us held liable for the rent while they are trying to sell it.
I signed up for the freecreditreport.com service today and paid for a copy of my Experian credit report. Much to my surprise I just found a derogatory report in my credit file from an agency in CA, Fidelity Information Corp that charges a small fee to individuals to try and collect debts. I wrote this company back within the 30 days required disputing the debt as incorrect. It stems from an old roommate trying to get additional money from me when he has already been paid. I haven't heard from him in 3 years and now all of a sudden I receive this collection letter out of the blue. I assume he is just broke and in need of money so he is in essence committing what I would term "legalized extortion" by having a collection agency try to collect some money for him that he is not due. As I said I wrote the company and disputed the debt pointing out to them that he and I had no written lease or agreement of any kind and that he retained the security deposit of $300 which more than covers the claim he is making for $247 in rent. He actually is ahead by $53 and now is trying to double dip and collect the amount twice. All that Fidelity did in response to my letter was to write back and say they verified with him that the debt was valid. How is this possible with no documentation and simply his word that it is valid? They said I needed to deal with him directly so they are obviously not a "collection agency" per se but rather a seller of collection letters. In a traditional collection you deal with the collection agency and not the actual creditor, which I always thought was the correct procedure once a debt is in collections. How can this be a valid debt collection attempt when there is no written agreement or lease that this party could have provided them to verify the debt or any proof of it whatsoever? They are simply taking his word for it that he is entitled to the amount he is trying to have them force me to pay to him directly. I assumed that my letter of dispute to the agency should have been sufficient and that would be the end of the matter since this party cannot prove this is a legitimate debt. Much to my surprise this collection company has put a derogatory mark on my Experian credit report that is obviously incorrect. Is it truly this easy for an individual who would like to get some free money to actually have a bad mark put on your credit report if you refuse to pay up? I can't believe there aren't safeguards in place to prevent this sort of abuse of one's credit report and score. Using this scenario who's to say that the next time I could use some extra cash I simply have a collection agency send you a threatening collection letter and when you refuse to pay me the money I am demanding I simply and legally put a blemish on your credit report in retaliation for your lack of cooperation at being fleeced? That is outrageous! Please tell me the best way to get this erroneous entry on my credit report immediately removed at no cost to me. It is the sole blemish on my Experian report whose score was around 824 or so before this entry dropped it about 50 points. I still have a good score but I don't want this on my record whatsoever. Thank you for your assistance!
I just got off the phone and paid some money to Fidelity Asset Recovery. If I didn't pay I would get served at work and got to court as told by them. And the lady that was helping me. Miranda. Said I refused. When I specifically didn't say that. I am unsure if this is a legitimate company. I had to pay in order to get served. $100.00. And I have to pay 275 by Aug. 8
