A Debt collection agency is known as the debt collector who is entirely specialized in the collecting debts when original creditor is not able to get arrears repaid. You may also know that small specialized companies are trained for the collection of some certain types of debts while the large companies work for their operation across several countries. These agencies have some legal powers but they can’t force on you or shout at you. Collection agencies make use of the phones calls and letters to make contact with you. They also have right to take the court action but the debt collectors don’t have any right to mislead or lie about legal powers.
You should know that a debt collector mainly works in the major two ways as given below:
- The original creditor can hire the collection agency in case you are not paying any amount or the amount you are paying would not be enough. The legal owner of the collection agency makes profit by the help of the original creditor with the collection of the full amount from you.
- The agency also owns an advantage as they would be paid by some percentage of money if their claims are successful and able to collect the amount.
