More About Collection Agencies

If you are falling behind with payment of your bills, or if a creditor has a record that incorrectly shows that you are behind with your payments, you may be contacted by a debt collector. A debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts that are owed to third parties. This term includes collection agencies, attorneys who regularly collect debts, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them. There are literally thousands of collection agencies available today. Many are simply small agencies initiated by unemployed employees with accounts receivable.

These small collection agencies are usually not experts in commercial collections. They do not have the business experience to understand the true reasons for business debt or to find ways to manipulate the situation to obtain payment. They simply write letters and make phone calls demanding payment and expect this to work. Other collection agencies like Advanced Pathway Solutions are huge. Collect all types of debt: credit card, mortgage, apartment rentals, medical bills, insurance bills, checks without funds to supermarkets, telephone bills, etc., and also commercial collections.

Debt collectors do not take the time to understand the business they are calling for, the situation of the debtor, the reason for the lack of payment, or the personality of the owner of the business. APS simply demand money that is much less effective than a professional approach. It is clear that the largest collection agencies cannot have debt collectors with this level of experience and ability. There are some professional collection agencies  that specializes in the commercial collection of large commercial debts.

The collection agency fee ranges between some percentage depending on the kind of debt. Some agencies tender a flat rate for the soft collection or pre-collection service. This kind of service sends urgent letters, usually not more than ten days apart and instructing debtors that they have to pay for the amount that they owe unswervingly to the creditor or face a negative credit report and a collection action. This sending of urgent letters is by far the most effective way to get the debtor pay for his or her arrears.
