    Hey y'all, looking for some pointers on buying accounts. I am in the process of purchasing 20+ accounts from another lco who is getting out of the business. In talking with him, he sounds like a good, honest, person - just wants out (98 degrees today - can't really blame him.). What do y'all (who have done this) recommend to make the transition smooth, and what should be added to the contract to protect my investment.

    Thanks.

    I'd stay away. It's easy enough to get the accounts without buying them. The only way I could see buying them if they were really good accounts. Like 20 right next to eachother. Supposably the going rate is 3-4X cut price.
