A debt collection interview has a lot in common with industrial espionage; however, the purpose of the steps taken in this case is fundamentally different.
A debt collection interview allows collecting information required for the working out of an effective debt collection strategy.
As part of a debt collection interview, we establish the property status (the actual property owned by the debtor) and identify sources of income (both formal and informal). Moreover, we identify the debtor’s bank accounts.
A debt collection interview conducted by detectives is mainly intended to verify whether the debtor has not disposed of their property to avoid debt collection and whether someone from their close family has not unexpectedly become rich. Providing property to close family members is a common practice used by debtors.
