Adler Wallach & Associates Debt Collection Harassment?

The fact that you have unpaid debt is most likely why you’ve been receiving calls from Adler Wallach & Associates, Inc. In some cases, the calls and messages never seem to stop coming. This is because you are being contacted by a debt collection agency.

Debt collection agencies live and breathe on debt recovery, in other words, they are companies whose job is to recover delinquent debt. Sometimes a creditor otherwise known as a lender, hires a debt collection agency to enable them to recover a debt which they couldn’t themselves. Other times creditors sell the debt to a third-party debt collector who then pursues the consumer or debtor to get them to pay up.

Being in debt isn’t a pleasant situation and having a debt collection agency calling and messaging you about your debt can be downright tormenting. This situation need not turn into a nightmare as there are ways to deal with debt and debt collectors. It would be greatly important to point out that ignoring a debt collector in the hope that they would stop calling isn’t one of the best solutions. Talk with the representative and ask for the name of the agency, office phone number, office address, debt collector’s license number (if your state provides one), and finally details about your debt. This would ensure that the person you are receiving calls from is not a fraudster trying to scam you and also verify that you actually owe the debt being brought to your doorstep.

The importance of taking these steps cannot be overemphasized! Should you find that the debt is actually yours, it is always advisable to calm down and think with a clear head. You can negotiate with a debt collection agency on a satisfactory payment plan. Call us now at 877-700-5790 if you have further questions.

How to negotiate with a debt collector.

The first step to take is to find out all you can about debt collection agencies, what drives them, how they work, and how they make their money. The next thing to do is to know your legal rights and strengths, this ensures that you know when your rights are being violated and also what is permissible within the law. Let us help you smoothen out whatever confusions and doubts you might have. Contact us today and get legal advice from an A+ accredited consumer rights lawyer on 877-700-5790.

Now that you have verified that the debt is yours, here is how to negotiate with Adler Wallach & Associates, Inc and put an end to the frustrating calls.

  1. Take out time and do the math. How much can you afford to put aside into debt settlement? Remember to be realistic and never agree to pay more than you actually can even if the collector tries to get you to.
  2. Only agree to not just a suitable amount, but a convenient timeframe by which you would pay up. Debt collectors often try to get you to pay huge amounts in the shortest time possible because they know that the more the debt tarries, the less they might be able to make from it.
  3. Alternatively, you can offer to pay higher amounts (if you can afford to) in exchange for a huge cut from the amount you owe.
  4. Third-party Debt collection agencies can buy debt for as low as 4 cents on the dollar, therefore if a collector offers you a payment plan that doesn’t sit right with you, do not be scared to counter it.
  5. Finally, remember to always document any agreements made and keep records of conversations. This would prevent knotty situations in the future.
