What is a Collection Agency Bond?
Collection agency bonds are legally binding contracts that protect your clients, and are generally required to operate legally. If you do not follow state regulations, a claim can be filed on your bond. For example, if you use harassment such as inappropriate threats to collect debts, a claim can be made.
