Has Phillips & Cohen contacted you for a debt they claim you owe them? Have you recently discovered the creditor on your credit report?
Maybe you’ve received a phone call or a debt collection letter from Phillips & Cohen, and now you’re not sure whether to contact them and what to do about the debt they say you owe them. Whatever the reason, here’s what you need to know about the company and how to deal with them.
Phillips & Cohen is a financial recovery agency specializing in deceased account management, cease and desist solutions, debt management recovery, consumer retail, credit cards, healthcare, and student loans both in the U.S. and internationally. With offices in the U.S., UK, Canada, and Australia, their one goal is to collect on any outstanding debt.
In other words, Phillips & Cohen purchases defaulted debts for pennies on the dollar then attempts to collect the original amount from the borrower.
The contact information for Phillips & Cohen is as follows:

Wilmington, DE 19801

Keep in mind that they are debt collectors, and debt collection agencies often record their calls.
It certainly is a law firm. They are even a BBB accredited business with an “A+” rating — despite an average of 1.29 out of 5 stars in customer reviews. However, they’re still required to abide by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) received 14 complaints about Phillips & Cohen in 2019. The agency responded to each complaint in a timely manner and closed all 14 with an explanation. Complaint topics included:
Whatever the reason for the communication, it’s a good idea to work with a debt resolution law firm to determine the best path forward for you. Debt collectors can be difficult to talk to on your own. And while the company claims compassionate engagement services, consumer complaints tell a different story.

I just wanted to thank your entire staff at The Law Offices of Leslie H. Tayne, for helping me get out of debt. If it wasn’t for your firm, I would have never been able to resolve my $13k worth of debt in less than 3 years. Your staff did a great job, I was finally able to buy myself a brand new car without using a cosigner. I can’t tell you again how happy I am. I would recommend your services to anyone.
