Collection Agency Tips for Tampa Businesses

How can you determine fact from fiction when dealing with non paying customers? At our commercial collection agency, we have literally heard thousands of excuses used by debtors to avoid paying. When faced with a story that looks suspicious, the most effective way to get to the truth is to ask questions and get more details. Once the details have been collected, the next step is to ask the customer to provide independent corroborating evidence. Examples include an IRS notice about taxes owed, a hospital bill, a screen shot of a bank statement, etc. If the customer refuses to corroborate, it is unlikely that the customer will cooperate either. Another effective method to sniff out deceit is to ask questions about a topic that you have gather independent information about prior to the conversation with the customer. Examples of good sources include: newspaper articles, line, judgment and UCC filings, press releases and announcements made via social media. After you have determined if your customer is telling fact or fiction, you can develop a strategy to proceed and ultimately get paid.
