Debt collection is the collection of the delinquent debt amount from the debtor. Business to business debt collection is generally a tedious process. It has to be tackled with great effort since business relationships must not be hurt. Federal law also limits harassment and abusive practices in debt collection, imposing the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or the FDCPA. Outsourcing of the debt collection to agencies is also a common practice. Debt collection agencies provide personalized services to collect debts.
