Extrajudicial debt collection

Statam International offers its contractual clients debt collection services in the whole Republic of Estonia, and with the help of our foreign partners, we can also perform debt collection outside Estonia.

When it comes to debt collection, it is the first priority of Statam International that it is vital to establish a personal and direct rapport with the debtor. It is our experience that sending a written payment request to the debtor or calling him or her does not constitute a method sufficient enough to recover the debt; instead, it is much more effective to meet face-to-face with the debtor and have a discussion on paying the debt. This is why, in order to get faster and better results, Statam International prefers to establish a direct contact with the debtor, instead of merely relying on the success of payment requests and phone calls.

Naturally, every client appreciates information on the progress of the collection of his or her claims – therefore, Statam International is ready to supply its clients with relevant information just as they themselves wish to receive it. The client can receive an oral report from his or her assigned collection officer anytime, because the debt collectors at Statam International are available to their clients at all times. In addition, the client can request a written report (by post, fax or e-mail), either after agreed periods of time or after submitting a corresponding request. The client always receives a written report if it becomes apparent that the client`s claim cannot be recovered by way of collection procedure. If this occurs, the collection officer includes in the report his opinion on whether it would be more efficient to take the claim to court or to write it off.

This kind of information exchange guarantees the client regular updates on the progress of his or her claim recovery and assures a confidential relationship between us and the client.
