They claim to have major clients "in the aerospace industry, computer technology, office products and supplies, equipment financing, and computer software." Note: No details provided to verify.

Their (his) Mission Statement: “[T]o provide outstanding quality service and to produce the highest collection and recovery rates in the industry for our clients.”

Here’s a quote from their web site:“Collection Process
We expect all debtors to engage with us in a timely manner. Either they own up to the debt and make payment arrangements, Or we Sue them. We don’t waste time with numerous letters and phone calls. It is in our best interest, and also for our clients, to work a case until it is collected or we are convinced they are out-of-business, or bankrupt.”

Notice their PROFESSIONAL tactics: “Either they own up to the debt and make payment arrangements, Or we Sue them.” A good attorney will shut them up real fast! Also, if they are harassing you (i.e. multiple calls in the same day, calling outside the LEGAL time window [yes they will!] contacting you at your place of employment, leaving threatening messages or giving information to someone other than you. . . find useful information here: http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fcra/index.shtm Don’t be a VICTIM, know your RIGHTS!

Note: They cannot spell, lots of spelling and grammatical errors on their so called PROFESSIONAL site
