08/20/2009: "UK Private Investigator Blog - "Debt Awards '09???""
Those people not in the finance or investigation industry may not even have heard of the Debt Collection Awards, but I assure you they do exist. They have announced that members of their industry have until September 18th 2009 to nominate any company they think should get an award.
Just for a little fun, here are the categories:-
consumer Debt Collection Agency of the Year <£2m
consumer DCA of the Year >£2m
commercial DCA of the Year
Debt Purchaser of the Year
Tracing Team of the Year
Enforcement Team of the Year
Compliance Team of the Year
DCA Manager of the Year
I've been doing a lot of traces in Canada recently, I wonder why the sudden increase? My contacts over there have been delivering top-notch results as well – locating ex-service men from WW2 and finding all sorts of missing relatives. Give me an email if anyone needs any work done.
I've also noticed an increase in the amount of small businesses contacting me to trace run away debtors in the UK. I think this is still some of the recession fall out. According to the BBC the government's expecting slight growth in the economy but it'll take several years of steady growth to get back to where we were.
Anyway, I hope you've all enjoyed the summer! Judging by the weather the last few weeks a UK “Indian Summer” has went right out of the window...
