What is a Collection Agency?

A collection agency is a company that pursues payment of debts owed by individuals or businesses.

Agencies operate as agents of creditors and collect debts for a commission.

If you stopped making payments, it is probably that pretty soon you will be contacted by a collection agency, such as Concord Servicing Corporation, Resort Recovery Solutions, Monterrey Financial Services or Textron Financial Corporation.

How Agencies Operate

These collection agencies will go on your credit reports, and they will probably sue you.

Besides, they may report you to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service), making your future financial investments very difficult.

When a collection agency gets your debt, it is very likely that it will include expenses like interest and fees, making your debt bigger, and ultimately reporting you as past due.

Normally, it takes about a month to appear on your report, but it takes around 7 years to clean it off.

First and foremost, the collection agency will try to contact you in every way possible in order to collect your debt.

Agencies can be very aggressive in their tactics; when this happens, they only get paid if they are able to collect.
