We are Debt Collection Attorneys in Florida.  We spend a lot of time with our commercial clients making sure that the message they send to their clients is effective.  All too often, debts stretch out and become uncollectible due to a lack of clear direction on the part of the creditor.

We read a great article on creating collection letters that work.  The original article can be found here.

To put a fine point to it, the recommendations they make are very relevant, and as follows:

 

Your debt collection letter should:

  • be clear and concise
  • not be repetitive
  • avoid jargon
  • be sent to an individual, a real person, not a position (like A/P Manager)
  • clearly state the action the debtor needs to take
  • contain clear deadlines
  • not be overly formal
  • attempt to appeal to the debtor’s needs (ie. uninterrupted supply of product)
  • be brief and professional
  • We found this excellent advise, and hope that in using it, you can increase your in-house collections.

When in-house efforts don’t generate results, turn to the debt collection attorneys in Florida, Marcadis Singer, PA.  Statistically, the longer a debt is delinquent, the less likely it is to be collected.  Call Marcadis Singer, PA as soon as it appears your debtor will not pay.
