The little Pomeranian dog loved to curl up on 82-year-old Stanford Kipping’s lap when he and his wife Patty, 70, went for a drive. But in recent months a sharp increase in the cost of prescription medicine and other bills were more than a match for the couple’s fixed incomes. With several $95 a month car payments left unpaid on their 1998 Buick, the repo man, Jim Ford of Belleville, stopped his tow truck in front of their house.
Wyoming, MN – November 16, 2016 – CU Recovery’s 2016 Collection Academy was another successful exchange of ideas on how credit unions can increase effectiveness in their collection departments. The sold-out crowd included participants from credit unions from around the country. Many sent several people to take advantage of the rich content found in 4 separate sessions and in open floor discussions with their peers. Wendy Elieff, Vice President of Sales & Service, facilitated the 2 ½ day conference. According to Elieff, the purpose of the conference was to “to share the wealth of knowledge that each credit union brings and with timely topics presented by experts in their respective fields.” “Valuable time was spent exchanging ideas with peers and meeting the experts who conducted the sessions.” Wendy continued.
November 16, 2016 – Recovery/Repossession businesses across the country recently received a letter from MBSi Corp.—telling these small business owners that they are REQUIRED to purchase and download MBSi’s newest evolution software and operating system, Recovery Connect. Failing to do this, the letter said, would discontinue the ability of the repossession company to do business with Santander Consumer USA, Inc. and Chrysler Capital. No, MBSi didn’t try to sell the use of Recovery Connect system… they DEMANDED that the system be purchased and used.
