Debt Collection Agency

With inflation eating away at peoples ability to service the already sky-high debt levels in the UK, it's little wonder that so many accounts are falling into arrears and being passed onto debt collection agencies. Over £60 billion in bad debt was sent to debt collecters last year and this figure is expected to rise as the economy continues to suffer.

Debt collection agencies either work on behalf of companies for a fee or they buy bad debts for a fraction of the balance, attempting to collect the full amount. Some collection companies such as Blair Oliver & Scott are actually the internal collection department of a bank, in this case Halifax/Bank of Scotland.

Staff at debt collection agencies are financially incentivised on how much debt they collect which often means that the experience of dealing with them from a debtors point of view is generally negative - we always hear stories of harassment, intimidation and aggressive collection methods from our new customers.

However, at InControl we have a completely different experience with debt collection agencies than our customers do before they join us. They often welcome our involvement as they will now have a complete picture of your finances and will no longer need to chase you for payment, dealing instead with your account manager as your appointed representative.

The Office of Fair Trading updated it's debt collection guidance in October 2011 and states that the following is an unfair method "contacting debtors directly and bypassing their appointed representatives, without permission from the debtor or his representative.."
