The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act mandates that we inform you that:

“This communication is from a debt collector and is an attempt to collect a debt.   Any information obtained will be used for that purpose."

How much do you know about the debt-collections process?  Or what it takes to maintain your credit score health?

PRA LLC invites you to visit LifeCents, a free, financial literacy website developed with you in mind.  When you access the site, you’ll learn more about managing delinquent debt, identify other financial goals, and take steps towards improving your financial health. You also will have an opportunity to earn badges that can be redeemed to unlock rewards.

Access LifeCents to not only learn more about the debt collection process, but also to improve your credit score, become a savvy saver, and plan for your financial future.

These LifeCents modules have been developed by PRA LLC in partnership with Financial Education & Literacy Advisers (FELA), a leading provider of consumer and financial education programs.
