What to do if someone owes you money…

If you have a client, customer, business partner or even a ‘friend’ who is refusing to pay you what they owe you, it can be a big pain. Sometimes people are trying to  severely delaying payment, or they might plan to never pay you at all! Our private investigators have put together some tips to help you get paid, and get yourself out of this tricky situation.

You might have a customer who keeps missing payments on their payment plans, a client who keeps missing the invoice due date and making excuses, or someone who just flat out ignores your requests and appears to have disappeared off the face of the earth!

The first step, which may sound obvious, is to make sure you have tried everything you can to communicate with them that payment is due. Give them a call, email them, and even mail them an invoice. Even if it’s a friend or family member, it’s best to make it 100% clear that they owe you money. Also, sometimes it can be a genuine mistake; maybe their phone is broken, or the invoice got lost in the mail. But if you are definitely sure they know about the debt, and just refuse to pay, then it’s time to take it further.

If someone has made up their mind that they don’t want to pay, it’s a very painful experience trying to recover that money. Luckily, you have more options than just endlessly nagging your debtor. You can hire a professional to manage the situation for you! As a licenced debt collector, our private investigators can help you recover the money owed to you, and manage the situation in a professional manner, ensuring everything runs smoothly. Plus, as we’ve done this before and have the skills and equipment needed, we give you the greatest chance of recovering your money!

Our debt collecting specialists can investigate and track down clients that refuse to return your calls, collect outstanding arrears you thought were lost forever, and manage the whole situation to save you time and stress!

Our team of private detectives include professional debt collectors who specialise in Australian legislation about debt and creditors, so they know the legal process for requesting overdue payments, putting pressure on ‘problem clients’, and negotiate payment plans to achieve a situation that works for both parties.

Plus, our Sydney/Melbourne licensed private investigators can investigate reasons why the client isn’t adhering to the payment terms and use this knowledge to negotiate, increasing the chance that you will get paid. We can also follow through on debt collecting cases, chasing up missing payments and following through on the repayment schedule. Plus, by hiring a debt collector, you have the added security in case the situation turns sour.
