Receivables fraud or collection agency fraud is a harmful act which can defraud businesses out of thousands of dollars. Generally, the way a collection agency or receivables fraud scam works is when a collection agency without your authority settles with a customer who owes a past due debt. Many times the collection agency will operate under color of agency or authority causing the former customer to send the requested funds to satisfy the past due balance. However, the collection agency never had the proper authority to settle such matters, nor did they forward the funds to the owed party. As a result the party who sent the funds may still be liable for the money owed, which can take a serious toll on ones business.
