Ever wonder what makes a debt collector good at getting people to pay debts? In the below video, I interview Jared Strauss, a former debt collector. In the video below, he talks about his methods for collecting debt that made him such a success. What he has to share will likely surprise many viewers.
What Jared talks about in the video can help you understand debt collection better if you are dealing with your own collection issues and unpaid bills.
He also gives insights into what a debt collector pays attention to if you are trying to settle, or set up payments on accounts that are placed with a collection agency.
Getting Help From a Debt Collector
If getting help to resolve your bills with debt collectors right now by working with a successful former debt collector seems counter intuitive, I would discard that notion immediately.
More than 10 years ago, Jared left debt collection behind to form his own company, Debt Relief A la carte. He assists people who are dealing with debt collectors by resolving their debts for less than the balance owed, and while using much of what he knows about debt collectors training and work flow to his, and thereby your, advantage.
If you did not pick it up from the video, Debt Relief A la carte is one of few debt settlement companies that have been around for 10 years. Jared’s company is one of only a couple in the nation that offers professional negotiation services at the fair and affordable fee of 15% of savings.
Debt Relief A la carte does have a more stringent qualification for who they will work with to help settle credit card debt. I recognize the strict underwriting they use as being in place for the right reasons. After watching the interview with Jared above, you should recognize the benefits of settling debts quickly.
Why resolve unpaid credit card debt by settling as fast as possible?
There are benefits to settling debts as quickly as possible. And when you are in the position to settle all debts in collection in and around the same time, those benefits can be compounded. Here are just a few:
- Settling multiple debts quickly can often mean better savings (it takes less money to settle, or the money you do have can stretch further to settle more debt).
- You can reduce, and even eliminate, some of the negatives to paying less than what you owe, which include risks of being sued, and multiple harmful credit report entries for the same accounts.
- Eliminate collection calls, and risks that those calls bring with them, that much sooner.
- Having debts in collection can take an emotional and even physical toll. The sooner you can put any of that behind you the better.
