    Collecting Past Due Accounts

    mercy1 Newbie
      I need help with collections at our office. Where do I start looking for reputable collection agencies who will not "strong-arm" our clients?

          I have just the debt collection company.
          They are actually a client of my firm and have a procedure in place where they do not strong-arm customers.
          Email me at and I will be happy to give you their contact information.

            May I ask where you are located, and what type of business you are in?

                Good question, Lighthouse. Have you tried the yellow pages in your area (yes the yellow pages still exist)
                or googling "Collection Agencies"
                Debtors are more likely to pay once contacted by a collection agency.{font:Verdana}{size:10pt} A collection agency knows
                works when it comes to collecting overdue payments. There are very
                specific rules and
                regulations around the permissible methods of
                contacting a debtor.
                Good luck, LUCKIEST
