Does anyone know of a good collections agency here in Vegas??? I am looking for an agency that takes their portion of the money when the money is received.... essentially, no up front money on my behalf! Thanks!

the debt is about 7 months old, no judgement, not sure if they are still employed, and it's about $2,000. I didn't want to waste my time going through small claims court and wanted to hand it over to a collections agency to make sure that the debt is reported on the tenants credit report....

without a judgment, it won't be reported.. if you are looking to collect past rent etc. from eviction, sorry but not worth the hassle.

I dont agree with that. I have a medical debt of $743.26 that just popped up on my credit coincidentally 1 day before the (7 year) statute of limitations ran out. I ignored the one and only non certified letter sent to me and about 2 months later I notice its on my credit report.

Creditors never ever give up these days. No matter how small the amount.

Yes, you do no have to have a judgment to have it reported. Once it goes to a collection company, it gets reported the next month. Collection companies have to send their records to the credit bureaus once a month. Worked for one about 10 years ago.

I had one I use to use when I worked at my last job, but would not suggest them. The company I worked for years ago was Quantum Collections, they were on Civic Center. Not sure about their policies, because I worked for their office in AZ. But I know their agents were aggressive, and will file claim to garnish wages if they have solid work info, or find it.

Hopes this helps.

it was from a company originally, not an individual.. that would be like me going to a collection agency and saying my neighbor owes me $200, put it on the report. a company has a statement

it is easy to get it off your report, send them a validation letter. also dispute it with all the credit bureaus..... you can go to creditboards.com for more info
