1

Draft a Demand Letter

A short formal demand letter drafted by an attorney can be enough to convince debtors to pay. Firms like ours will include a draft complaint to let the debtor know you are serious about suing them if they do not pay.

2

Call the Debtor

Call centers can call a debtor many times to get the debtor to pony up. Commercial debt is not governed by the FDCPA, so there are not as many regulations governing collection tactics.

3

Sue the Debtor

If other efforts fail, a lawsuit is the best way to get paid. Unless the debtor spends a lot of money to fight the debt they will need to pay.

4

Enforce your judgment

Collection firms have multiple ways to turn your judgment into money. By filing a few papers and paying $75, you can send a sheriff to the debtor's business to take the money directly from the debtor's customers.
