Training Course Syllabus:


Accounts Receivable/Consumer Debt Collection - From Delinquency to Bankruptcy

Course Description:

Consumer debt collection is among the most regulated areas of business there is. In fact, the United States is known to be "debtor-friendly", meaning debtors typically have more rights and protections than creditors. The Federal law that regulates consumer debt collection is the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Companies that have full knowledge of this Act normally fare ok with debtors. Those that do not risk a civil lawsuit. The issue is that the Act itself is open to interpretation in many areas, and even veteran collectors get tripped up by it. Business-to-business (commercial) debt collection is governed by the Uniform Commercial Code, and the government tends to take a more "hands off" approach. This seminar will delve into both consumer and commercial debt collection regulations, and offer best practices to increase your company´s rate of recovery while remaining within the bounds of the law. We will also cover how to handle being sued by a debtor for alleged violations of the law, and how to pursue aggressive collection techniques properly. Finally, the seminar will cover how to handle a debtor bankruptcy.
