Debt Collection Agency and its Procedure

A debt collection agency, what would an individual guess about them in the start? The name itself would scare few, while others would picture them as people who go around collecting money with violence and misbehaviour, fighting and arguing with households or selves and firms for unpaid debt.

Well, the reality isn’t entirely different, but not the same either. While a person is looking forward to taking debt on his head, he/she should compulsorily have an idea in mind as to how they are going to give it back without delay.

No one likes taking debts, but when they are stepping ahead and taking the money, their time starts from the same moment onwards. A lender trusts you for his/her money, while you pass them an agreement or guarantee that they will get their money back on time but when people fail to do so, it’s the time for Debt collectors to step in the game.

Below is the process of how Debt collectors usually collect money:

  • To start with, for the first 6 months of your irresponsibility towards your debt, you will be only dealing with your Creditor, or his side of the collector who is also known as the First party, you will Be called as the Second party here. This is the best time to pay your due and apologize for the delay as there are chances you can be forgiven with politeness and kindness by the creditor. If the creditor is being truly kind, he may give you another chance in future.
  • Moving ahead, when the Creditor Is sure that you don’t have any intention of paying the amount back, the case then goes into the hands of some professional organisation, also known as a Debt collection agency. They are given full authority from the creditors for collection and so, they handle the case in a way they find appropriate. Till this time, the debt is owned by and owed to creditors only. If the firm successfully collects the amount or at least a part of it from the debtors, creditors then pay them a part of the collected money as a commission or some amount separately as a fee.
  • Now, when your Creditor is assured that there are no chances of you giving back the money, then as their last chance, they sell the debt to some debt buyer agency in return for some bucks or dollars. The new owner of the debt would be the agency and not your previous creditor, they will try their best to pull the money out from you to receive some profit from it. Here, you will be unwantedly dealing with third party people who won’t go easy on you like your first creditor.

It’s not easy to give the money when in reality you don’t have it, but when there is a third party active, just accept that you messed up big time.

In past years, there have been a lot of DebtCollection agencies adapting completely to the lawsuit environment. Why? Because people would take agencies handily at some point, but when we talk about money collecting through the law, anyone would be scared, the impression of a lawsuit collecting the money would be better than that of an agency.
