Frequently Asked Questions

We are debt collectors. Communication with our office is an attempt to collect a debt & any information obtained will be used for that purpose.


DEFENDANTS: Because we represent the creditor, not you, we cannot give you legal advice. If you are unsure what to do, or disagree with any claim in the case, you should hire an attorney.  If you agree & want to make payments, please call us.


If you can't pay what our client requires, our Special Consideration Application is below. If your situation merits variance from standard parameters, our clients do sometimes make exceptions.

GARNISHEES: We cannot give legal advice about your obligations with respect to answering a garnishment. Please read the instructions. All we ask is that you make a good faith effort to comply.  Try your best & give us your contact information. We will call or email if needed.
