Do you guys reccomend any specific company for collection? Thanks
yeah my cousin vinny down in Jersey, what ever you do dont miss your payments. lol
I would be interested in this info also, The company I use has not collected anything for me yet...
I can give you one that everyone will reccommend that I will say to stay away from. olddebts.com. They make you pre-pay, so you pay even if they don't collect, and they send 4 letters. Big Deal. A real collection company is paid only if they collect, and sends tons of letters and ,akes tons of phone calls until payment is collected. olddebts is kind of a rip off.
I have pretty good luck with old debts, took a few months but I got my money
I've had bad luck with olddebts.com. I think they're a waste of money.
We don't let it get beyond one application, unless I personally know the client.
We ......... don't service unless current.
We do our own collections, face to face.
I'm with ya! I don't let them get beyond 1 app behind unless they're an old customer I know will pay. They get a phone call and or a letter at 30 days past due. They get another letter at 45days. If I don't receive payment by 60 days I drop them like a bad habit.I don't have time to go to court and fight with people. I cut my losses. I'd much rather they be a headache for somebody else. So, I weed out the "chronic problems" along the way. There are a few that have balls that clank. When they call me and want me to come back. I usually tell them I require a prepayment check for any more service. That either straightens them out or sends them packing.
One more thing,.............I don't want somebody else representing our company.
