Funeral Debt Paid in Full After Simple Demand Letter from Collection Attorney

Our law firm has been collecting debt for clients for decades, including local businesses, financial institutions, and individuals. One recent example: we represent a number of local funeral homes as outside general counsel. One client referred an unpaid account to us for collections after months of futile attempts by its staff. After reviewing the referral, and investigating the situation, our collection lawyers discovered a potentially illegal scheme and misrepresentations by the debtor related to a GoFundMe page. With one demand letter, the debtor paid in full within two weeks after six months of avoiding payment.
