I have an account that owes a small amount, but company policy is to chase all delinquent accounts until satisfied. To make a long story short, the folks never paid for a grass cut they received right about 60 days ago, I've hand-delivered a terse letter that explains their account will be sent to collections and go to court but they don't seem to realize that I have the ability to do this. Matter of fact, they think I'm just a lawn boy and that is where I feel the problem exists, they simply don't pay. Now I found out where they both work, one is a volunteer fire fighter, the other a professor at a private University. I have one of their email addresses and can locate that of co-workers and staff (at the college). I am thinking about emailing several of the staff at the u. and also showing up at the fire department to explain in few words the importance of paying businesses the money you rightfully owe. That's before I send it to collections, who will also be calling them at their home, maybe I'll forward them their work number thou this can put a bind on things with the Fair debt collection act. It would seem that the Fair debt collection act covers mostly things a debt collector (such as a collection agent) can not do, but doesn't say much about the creditor (me), so it appears that most anything short of breaking the law is open game. I'm just wondering if anyone else has chased to such extent and if it's legal, how well does it work? Thanks.
