FONTENOT • PARKER
Specializing in the Collection of Delinquent Accounts Nationwide
No debt Collection, No Fee:
Fontenot, Parker & Associates only takes a fee if we collect. If our debt recovery service fails, no fee! What better incentive is there for a debt collection agency to work your files. Collecting money is our bread and butter and we know that we need to collect accounts in order to profit. Our collection rates average 5% to 10% lower than other agencies. We also offer special discounted rates for volume or for accounts over $10,000.00.
Accounts Receivable Outsourcing / Pre-Collection Services:
Fontenot, Parker & Associates offers collection outsourcing to clients that have a volume of accounts and would like to reduce the size of their in-house staff by using our firm for accounts receivable management. In a 30-day period, we send out 1 letter and make 2 phone calls to your clients. We are extremely professional and courteous with your clients and understand that you want to retain them as customers. The benefits of the outsourcing debt collection service is that it truly does work and it can save you thousands of dollars in salary expenses including vacation, benefits and taxes. The cost for this service averages from $6.00 to $8.00 an account depending on the volume you have.
Fontenot, Parker & Associates has access to the same database that is used by law enforcement. We can find almost anyone in a matter of seconds and even obtain their date of birth, social security number and other vital information that helps us to locate the debtor. We perform skip-tracing on a daily basis on collection files that are placed with our firm and the costs are not passed onto you. It is simply the cost of doing business for our firm. In order to collect effectively, skip-tracing and investigations are always necessary.
Fontenot, Parker & Associates provides personal credit reports to our clients when they are dealing with a DBA, partnership or if you have a personal guarantee signed by the owner/officer. Ultimately, in these situations, the owner of the business will be personally responsible and it is their personal credit report that you should obtain.
If the debtor continues to ignore all our collection efforts, the claim is forwarded to our attorney in the debtor's area. This is effective since the attorney is right in the debtor's "backyard". All our attorneys are members of the Commercial Law League of America (CLLA) and are fully licensed and bonded. We've had experiences with these attorneys for many years and know which attorneys are the absolute best for a given situation.
Credit Bureau Reporting:
Fontenot, Parker & Associates will report your claims to the credit bureaus. If the claim is against a corporation, we report the debt on the business' credit report. If the debt is against an individual, we report the debt on their personal credit report.
