[WISPA] Collections

What do you guys pay for people to do collections?

I was complaining about people that owe me money to someone I know and she 
volunteered herself to do the work.  I guess she used to work for a collections 
company and was quite effective.  I'm assuming a percentage of what she 
collects, but what percent?  25%, 50%, 75%?

Can't you just save them all up and go to small claims court?  Make one trip 
and don't share any money with anyone.

I'm too lazy to chase them.  If I don't sub it out to someone, no one will 
be on their butt about paying up.

It wouldn't even be an official collections agency, just someone doing a one 
time consulting type job for me...  only instead of configuring a router, 
they'd be typing into the virtual terminal.  ;-)

Understood

I collect about 90% of my money without even getting in the court house.  Just 
go there, fill out forms and then wait for the phone to ring.

Good luck getting them

I have taken to filling out the small claims court paperwork, faxing it to 
the people who owe me money, then sitting back and waiting for the phone to 
ring.  It seems work well.

Small claims works great for LLC and partnership type companies as long the 
cost is less then $2000. In the past we have done so with great success the 
hardest part can be to figure out the address to have the Sheriff or Police 
serv them the court papers. But once served and they don't show up it's a slam 
dunk win.  We also had no problem winning a reasonable fee for court filing and 
time to do it. 

However as a Incorporation you do not have this option any longer.

Remember too - laws about amounts, who can file, who can be filed upon vary 
state to state, even jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

What passes in Kansas may not pass in Maryland, and vice versa.

I apoligize if this sounds obvious but dont let people owe you and you dont
have to worry! I take all payments automatically by credit card -  in
advance and cut off late accounts on the 1st of each month. I used to do it
the other way and hated it!

I've been doing it that same way for years even with the dial-up.  If not
paid by the due date, off it goes.  It's amazing how fast they come into the
