How to Handle Collection Agencies & Collectors
Consumers have often expressed their concerns to me about harassing calls from debt collectors and how to deal with collection agents. Some even complain that even though they have made an assignment in bankruptcy (i.e. filed for bankruptcy) or made a Consumer Proposal, some credit collection agents continue to call.
First of all, it must be understood that the job of all debt collectors is to convince debtors to pay the debt. These debt collectors take their job seriously and because they work on commission, they are highly motivated to collect.
