Collecting bad debts in the US from abroad
March 3, 2014 5:49 PM   Subscribe

We, an Australian business, have a deadbeat client from the US who has defaulted on their accounts for services already provided. We have a clear paper trail and signed agreements, and looking to take the next steps in debt recovery which would involve a third party collections agency. Here in Australia there are a few reputable companies, but it seems like the Wild West in the States. Can any one recommend any particular company who can help out? The offending company is registered and operating out of Austin, TX. I so wish I didn't have to write this question. Thank you!

Collection agencies are useless. Go straight to a law firm who can sue them. Even if you do win collecting the money is another issue.
