HELP !!! The Recovery Industry is Under Major Attack!!!


A large national forwarder is attempting to change 493


Fellow recovery agents, just like they tried last year, a large national forwarder is attempting to change 493 and attempting to create an exemption for themselves from licensure!

For the second year in a row they are attempting to change the definition of what a recovery agency is. They claim that they are not a recovery agency yet in the State of Michigan, in front of a Michigan state Supreme Court Judge they testified under oath that they ARE a recovery Agency!

They claim that because they “DO NOT TOUCH THE METALl” they are not a recovery agency.

The legislative session this year is very short, in fact it ends on March 01, 2016.

They are putting a lot of pressure this year to get their Bill passed into law. If it does they will be able to operate unlicensed in Florida and you won’t! You can be punished and fined by the state and they won’t!

Is that fair?

We say either regulate equally across the board or do not regulate at all.

A Chance to Roll Back the Clock

trn_bck_clckGuest Editorial

There seems to be a change in the opinion of many recovery agents in regard to the value of associations in general. You are the owner of your own company and certainly have the right to your beliefs as to where and how clients find and assign business to your company.

To that end I will state that those of you that work for large contract banks and their forwarding agents (which now number in the dozens) may have thoughts that you no longer need advertising or that you can now afford to reduce your advertising space based on high volume. You find your office very busy and cash flow (as opposed to profits) seems very exciting and to that end you have modeled a new business plan.
