In Arizona, Debt Collection is Big Business
As the Arizona economy continues to suffer, debt collection has become a booming business in Arizona. If you have ever been on the receiving end of a collections effort, you know that an unpaid credit card bill can haunt you for years as the debt gets sold from one company to the next. But on average, debt collectors win in the end – which is why there are so many companies out there trying to get you to pay.
According to the Association of Credit and Collection Professionals International, third-party debt collectors took in $40.4 billion in 2007. In Arizona, consumers carry the fifth highest unsecured debt load in the nation, at an average of a whopping $26,035 per person. In 2009, Arizona also ranked third in the US for delinquent debts.
As Arizonans fall further behind on their consumer debt, they will eventually find themselves hounded by collection agencies trying to make a buck in a bad economy. The only way to stop the collection calls is to pay the debt or to file for bankruptcy protection – and the fresh start you and your family deserve.
