ARS National Services
ARS National Services is a debt collection agency headquartered in Escondido, California, with offices in Jacksonville, Florida; and Phoenix, Arizona. ARS collections has been in business since 1992, and claims to provide collection services for some of the biggest banks and credit card companies in the country.
ARS National Services pays their debt collectors $10-$14 per hour, but offers “aggressive, uncapped bonus potential” based on performance and seeks job candidates with a “competitive nature.” One could infer that the ARS collection agency debt collectors are highly motivated, which could conceivably create a mentality of going to great lengths to get a consumer to pay.

Do not admit to incurring the debt or make any offers or agreements to pay the debt without seeing verification of the debt in writing.

That notice must include a notification that you have 30 days in which to dispute a debt.
When dealing with a debt collector, do not become a victim. Learn all you can about the provisions of the FDCPA and the FCRA so that you know your rights. Document every contact that you have with any representatives of ARS National Services so that you’ll have evidence if you decide to file a complaint against the company with your state attorney general or sue them in federal court.
