How to use Curiosity to get a debt paid.

who did they send the cc to?Tried ‘everything’ to get paid (sent email reminders, left phone messages, sent statements, “threatening” demands, text messages – you may even have tried ‘snail mail’)? Getting frustrated? Debtor won’t pay or even respond? Try this … curiosity.

Prepare a draft email to your lawyers saying simply …
     Hi Jon,
     Please ignore my last email with the subject line “xxxxx”.

Send an email to the debtor … but with a cc … to your lawyers.

Send the prepared draft email off to your lawyers. (Best to call them before you use this tactic the first time.)

The debtor will look up the url of the place that was sent the cc. They’ll find out it’s been sent to your lawyers! And more often than not, they respond. Well, YOU’D want to know who’d got the cc if it was you, wouldn’t you? And, if YOU would, so will your debtor.

About the Author:

Have you ever wondered why a client does business with you and then ignores your invoice like they had no intention of paying it in the first place or they treat you like their own personal line of credit, leaving YOU dangling, waiting months for their payment? Unfortunately this situation is all too common and can even be puzzling for the most experienced business owner. If you’ve ever had to handle outstanding accounts or you are just so over non-payers, then we can help. Real-world skills, solutions, tips & strategies to get more accounts paid on time, and, most importantly, how to maintain customer goodwill while keeping YOUR cash flow in the positive. You will find the blog posts helpful but to get real results, contact us by using any of the forms on this site, by email or by phone. I’ve been involved in the management of accounts for over 30 years, heard every excuse in the book, can spot a non-payer at 20 paces. Finance Companies in the 70s (systematic, tough), professional firms in the 80s (no systems, too gentle) and, since then, just about every other sort of business you can think of. I’ve written books on the topic, spoken all over the place about it and the blog in this website is my way of “giving back”. I hope you find it helpful.
