My business is in the D.C. area. Can anyone recommend a good collection agency that will help me to get a "client" to pay up on his outstanding invoices?
I have learned my lesson, and I'll never make the mistake of not trusting my instincts ever again. I have come across a "client" who REFUSES to pay me for the services I provided him. I have tried to collect via numerous telephone calls and going straight to his accounting dept., to no avail. It is costing me time and therefore losing me money. It's time I hand the matter over to a collection agency. Argh.

First, you have to send a certified letter requesting your money in 14 days.
I have prepaid legal, so they actually sent the letter or told me what to put in it.
I'd send a copy of a letter to your local BB and State Attorney General Office. This way you get this company on their records as a problem.
Then I'd go to a collection agency.
I have to say that twice out of 7 times I lost money dealing with deadbeats. However, anyone who contacts the BB on them will learn about them! And I put a complaint note on my website about them; and hope it comes up when someone searches for them.
I get my money up front now.
