An automated debt collection system is preferable to outsourcing – the big business cure for everything. Call centers to India, software development to Pakistan, manufacturing to China. People who sell debt collecting services like to make us think that outsourcing will solve all our cash flow problems. I’m not sure that this big business wisdom makes small business sense in this case. Let me explain.
We live on a big planet; their are thousands of Debt Collectors Scotland businesses – but they aren’t all identical; as a new industrialist it’s your occupation to run your business the finest way you see fit by your experiences you have derived in life so far.
A favorite trick of debt scavengers is to hound you into agreeing to a payment plan and to immediately make a “good faith” payment of $10 or some other small amount. They will try to get your bank account number and routing information. This is a mistake! Do not make any payment no matter how small the amount or whatever they promise you. Do not negotiate. Do not make any deals. Do not agree to a payment plan. I think you get the idea.
Don’t forget the small stuff. Pay off your little items, such as old rental fines or unpaid gym memberships. These items will show up on your report, no matter how small the debt is.
Change your phone line (through your service provider) so that it doesn’t accept callers which withhold their number. Most debt collection calls will originate from large call centers that have the “number withhold” set. Using this tactic will cut out a surprising number of calls.
There are other paths you can take in dealing with debt relief. Getting the collector to validate and verify the debt can be an effective tool for you. There are also ways to make them stop calling you. Both of these topics are discussed on our website.
If your debt is over $10,000, negotiating on your own may be difficult. With a debt settlement program it is possible to reduce your personal debt by 50%, and some up to 89%. Because of the great number of clients a good debt relief company has it is possible for them to negotiate the best debt settlement for you through volume. In other words, they are not just bargaining with creditors over your $10,000 credit account; they group your debt in with their other clients and negotiate $500,000 worth of debt. That gives them much greater leverage than you would have on your own, and gives you a better deal. This is also discussed more in depth on our website.
