How do debt collection agencies work?
Debt collectors are agencies whose job is to pursue debtors on behalf of a first-party creditor and attempt to get them to pay their debts.
If you are getting calls from a debt collector or you think you may be getting calls from them soon because of a debt that you have, you will need to understand how debt collection agencies work. Understanding this will give you a better idea of the aim and interests of a debt collector and how their minds usually work, helping you to be better prepared for their calls, to communicate better with them, and make informed decisions.
There are different types of debts, collections, and collection agencies, but there is a general sequence.
When you default on your regular debt payments, the original creditor will try to use their best effort to attempt to collect their debt from you usually within about 3 to 6 months.
However, if for whatever reason they’re not successful, they can choose to outsource it to a collection agency. The collection agency then begins to pursue the debt like they’re the original creditor.
If you owe money to an XYZ bank for example, for the first 6 months, they will be the ones calling you. After 6 months, the calls may still come, but it may be from a debt collector. The caller may still say they’re from XYZ bank, but he may actually be from ABC collection agency. The creditor pays the collection agency a commission when they collect the debt.
Commissions for collection agencies have considerably come down over the years because credit card companies and banks have been squeezing them to try to get a reduction in the amount of money they spend in trying to collect bad debt. Therefore, the commission rate could be anywhere from 10 to 20 percent.
As a general rule, as the debt gets older – for example, if it goes past the statute of limitations period, and it can’t be settled in court – the commission rate for the collection agency goes higher. It might be as high as 40 or 50 percent of whatever they collect.
Another option some creditors explore is to sell off the debt. Sometimes, the creditor can sell off the debt completely to a collection agency for pennies on the dollar, depending on the type of debt it is.
The debt buyer can in turn choose to get another debt collector to pursue the debt for them or pursue it by themselves. Debt collection involves several ordeals and layers of interactions, depending on the type of debt, how old it is, and the decision of the original creditor.
If you’re getting calls about a debt, it may not be from your original creditor, but rather from the debt collector who they have enlisted to collect it.
You should make proper inquiries about the debt and ask questions about the original creditor to confirm that the debt is actually yours and see what options are available for you to pay up. The FDCPA allows you to ask questions about the debt, the amount, and the original creditor.
National Enterprise Systems phone harassment
Did you know that if a debt collector calls you multiple times in a day, it is termed debt collection harassment?
According to the FDCPA, a debt collector should not call you before 8 am and after 9 pm daily. Any debt collector who does this is violating the FDCPA.
If you are experiencing National Enterprise Systems phone harassment, (if National Enterprise Systems is calling you many times with the intention to annoy, threaten, or harass you), they are violating your rights under the FDCPA. The first thing to do about National Enterprise Systems phone harassment is to verbally ask the debt collector to stop communicating with you via phone calls as they are beginning to violate your rights. The debt collector can continue contacting you in written form. If the harassment persists, you can file a complaint.
What to do if NES files a lawsuit against you
When debt collectors are not able to recover debts and can not reach an agreement with the debtor, they may choose to file a lawsuit. Many lawsuits end in favor of the debt collector. This is usually because the debtors do not know what to do in such situations and end up not showing up in court. If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you and you fail to show up, that gives them an automatic judgment against you which can lead to Wage Garnishment
Do the following if you get a lawsuit summons from a debt collector.
- Don’t panic
- Go through your records and confirm details on the debt. Confirm the amount, agency owed, or if you even owe at all.
- Consult an attorney and get the necessary knowledge
- Show up in court
- Enter into a payment agreement: To avoid the judgment being in the favor of the debt collector, propose a payment plan. If you are able to assure a debt collector that you will pay within a reasonable period of time, they may dismiss the case
- Negotiate: Try negotiating with your debt collector for a lower payment plan
