Fee Arrangements - You Establish Your Own Fee

Our fee structure is designed to reflect our costs for the collection. We of course include our collection costs in our demand. You decide what the fee is by choosing when to assign your account. We only charge a collection fee when we recover your money.

  • 20%  United States accounts assigned before they are 60 days past due are collected for a 20% contingency fee (requirements: minimum account balance is $1000; no returned checks).
  • 30%  California accounts larger than $500 and not yet 12 months past due will be collected for a 30% contingency fee.
  • 40% United States claims less than $500 and/or those that are past due longer than 12 months will be collected for a 40% contingency fee.
  • 45%  Claims outside the United States, judgments, returned checks, or accounts previously assigned for collection with another agency will be collected for a 45% contingency fee.

Remittance to you for money collected (less our fees), will be sent to you within one month of our receipt of good funds.

A fee of 10% of the principal balance may be charged for accounts that are found to have been paid by the debtor prior to assignment to our firm, or on accounts assigned to us in error.


Lawsuit Information
  Your claim is assigned only for NON-LITIGATION collection. In the unlikely event that a lawsuit is required to collect from your debtor, and you choose to authorize suit, you will be asked to advance a non-contingent, non-refundable suit fee of 10% of the assigned balance in addition to court costs (approximately $300).  For claims in excess of $10,000, a discount may be appropriate.
