Final Demand Letter
Final Demand Letter mails a final demand collection notice to your past due business customer. The letter is effective because it is sent from instead of directly from you, the creditor. The letter advises the delinquent account, that if their balance is not received on or before the “Final Date” they will be placed with CMI Credit Mediators Inc. for direct collection. The final date is clearly called out and all payments are sent directly to you for deposit and processing. There is no fee due us if the payment is received and reported by you during this free demand period. After the “free” period expires and a payment is made then our usual 25% contingent fee will apply. Please click below to see a sample of our Free Final Demand letter.
