Traditional Debt Recovery

All Accounts placed for collection will be acknowledged upon receipt and set up for immediate collection in our fully automated collection system. Collection action is initiated within 48 hours from the time of placement, often within 24 hours.

Each account will receive an initial written demand which includes a validation clause (the Mini-Miranda as required by federal law) in order to bring to the surface any disputes and thereby allowing our collection staff to resolve them and continue collection efforts while encouraging a satisfactory client/debtor relationship.

Accounts will receive collection efforts on a timely and equal basis to insure maximum recovery regardless of the balance, with a normal follow-up of five to ten days depending on the debtor’s response.

Obviously, the follow-up depends on whether the debtor makes a promise, keeps a promise or breaks a promise. Our collectors are trained to handle every account on an individual basis up to and including the recommendation of initiation of legal action with your written permission.

  • Date of Last Transaction is a vital piece of information. Without this date, the Credit Bureaus will NOT allow the debt to report on the debtors credit report.
  • To ensure accuracy of placement total, each placement will generate an placement acknowledgment for delivery to client’s office. Please verify number of accounts and dollars placed.
