Third Party Collections
Companies are faced with the common challenge of finding ways to prompt seriously delinquent customers to make payment before they are charged off as bad debt and collect the full balance after write off. V&K’s third-party collection service imparts a sense of urgency upon seriously delinquent customers during these periods, reducing net write-offs and the cost of collecting after charge-off.
Most important is the timing, sequence, and breadth of effort V&K applies to your portfolio. With the right data supplied to us at placement, V&K can locate and collect from the greatest number of previously uncollected accounts. The best way to achieve this objective is V&K’s method: concerted calling campaigns supplemented by automated skip tracing and third-party notices.
Our strategy ensures V&K contacts and collects from the highest percentage of customers, translating to the greatest return and highest value for our clients.
V&K utilizes the following proven strategies to drive collections results:
- Initial Data Scrub and Scoring

- Credit Reporting
- Skip Tracing
Letters series are a cost effective way to handle a large volume of delinquent accounts all while conveying the seriousness of the delinquency and escalating the collection process. We have over 200 different types of letters we can send to help you with your collection efforts.
We apply a combination of manual skip tracing by our trained representatives and an automatic waterfall. Our representatives are trained how to effectively utilize the information we obtain from the most reputable data providers in the industry and how to conduct in-depth investigation from acquired leads. They ensure that every available resource is expended. We apply a waterfall skip tracing methodology that includes batch processing from several third-party databases in order to capture the most recent contact information available.
