Are you being called by Rent Recovery Solutions, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know.
Most of us have missed the occasional bill payment, and creditors are usually pretty good about letting up make up the arrears. But when financial hardship causes us to miss several payments in succession, there’s a good chance that we’ll be hearing from a debt collector soon. This can make a stressful situation even worse, as collection agencies are known to use threats and intimidation to make debtors pay.
