TrueAccord is a debt collection company started by people who had experienced bad treatment in the debt collection process. We recognized an opportunity to build a system to fundamentally change debt collection, so we created TrueAccord to turn collections into a recovery and reconciliation process.

TrueAccord is a licensed third party debt collection agency. We work with clients who place accounts for us to collect on their behalf. TrueAccord does not purchase debts nor does it own your debt.
TrueAccord is serious about data security. We seek to implement the best practices in data collection, storage, processing, and security to protect against unauthorized access and disclosure. TrueAccord protects your personal information during transit using encryption such as Transport Layer Security (TLS) and at rest using encryption such as AES 256. When your personal data is stored by TrueAccord, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures.
At TrueAccord, we strive to reimagine debt collection as customer-focused and empathetic. That’s why we pride ourselves on our technology and content strategy to reach out to customers like you respectfully and in the least disruptive channels possible. We want to help you resolve your account and improve your financial wellbeing. Our online tools make it easy to see your options and create your own payment plan, so you can customize how much and how often you can make payments towards resolving your account.
As a debt collection agency, we may have a limited amount of time to work with you where you’ll get access to our online tools, flexible payment arrangements and digital communications. After our time is up servicing your account, some creditors may choose alternative ways to collect on the balance, including placing it with another collections agency.
We hope you give us a chance to help you resolve your account with us, and experience collections hassle-free. Don’t just take our word for it—read what our recent customers have written about us on our Google reviews.
I am getting emails from TrueAccord about two different debts. How can I find more information about them?
There may be instances where more than one account in your name is placed with TrueAccord for collection. We are working hard to create an online experience for those customers that have more than one account placed with us, but for now the best way to learn more about the debts is to reach out to our Customer Engagement team at (866) 611-2731, or you can email them at email@example.com.
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), a debt collector is generally not permitted to disclose information about a consumer’s account to anyone other than the consumer without their consent. So, when a debt collector gets someone on the phone, the collector is obligated to verify that the person they are speaking with is the consumer or an authorized party of the consumer. This is often done by verifying a combination of information such as:
Full Legal Name
Date of birth
Last four digits of a Social Security Number
Complete mailing address
Once the customer service representative verifies that they are speaking with the consumer or an authorized party of the consumer, they can explain the status of the account and answer any questions you may have about your debt.
When a person refuses to verify their identity, the customer service representative, by law, cannot share any information until they confirm with personal identifying information that they have the correct person on the phone.
If you feel uncomfortable sharing your information over the phone, you can use your TrueAccord account number and evaluate your options on our website. Generally, if you are a family member, friend or employer of the consumer, you are considered a “third party.” Without the consent of the consumer, a debt collector cannot give third parties any information about the reason for the call. The law only permits our customer service representative to reveal the name of the debt collection company, if asked by the third party.

You are receiving a voicemail from TrueAccord because you may have an unpaid account in your name that is in collections. Your phone number is associated with the account, which is why you received a voicemail on the number you did.
We sent you a voicemail because we want to help you resolve this debt. You could sign up for a payment plan and pay off the balance on your own time.
The voicemails are legitimate.
To assist our team in reaching our customers efficiently and consistently we sometimes use automation software to schedule and send messages. These messages have all been written and reviewed by a TrueAccord team member but are sent automatically by our software.
To provide meaning, our automated messages use virtual sender names. These virtual sender names are grouped and referred to as our “Automated Staff”. We believe transparency increases trust, removes hidden agendas and provides a better customer experience.
