State Collections Licenses

I just found across a nice website that provides quick answers to general collections licensing requirements for the different states:

Be aware, though, that some of the states that require a collections license only do so for consumer-related judgments, not for others.

The world is slow and stupid, and what to do about it

I have learned the 99% of what is on TV, who calls me, and who emails me, are not right for me. I have decided to unplug my landline and delete most of the incoming emails. I will listen to good music, watch comedy TV, meditate, and will be writing the best articles soon again.  I used to write so much because I thought the world would respond and enjoy it. Now I fully understand why I write, for the same reason the birds sing and the stars shine, because I (and they) dig it. Every day I will remind myself the internet is a 2 D world and my world is 3D and I am much more important than the contributions  I have or will make in the future. You and I are much more important than the online world. I wish us all the best.  My response to a declining world is to tune it out, but be ever so supportive to friends and good people and customers.

Giving Up On Kaiser Medical

After years of grossly misdiagnosing my medical problem and making it worse MUCH and giving me poison pill after pills, I am done with Kaiser medical. Medical CBD pot that does not get you high, if you take that they will not treat you even though CBDs are powerful anti-aserizure safe drugs.

TLO increasing prices, changing policies

TLO Data Service (arguably the best data service for those in the collection industry) has changed prices and policy way too often.  They again increased their prices for most services. From TLO:

To offer the best features and functionality, pricing for the following items only will be adjusted. Your new rates for these items beginning on January 1, 2015, will be:

· Transactional People Searches will be charged $0.30
· Transactional all other Searches will be charged $0.50
· Transactional Comprehensive Report will be charged $5.00
· Transactional Locate Report will be charged $1.00
If you are on an unlimited use flat fee you do not have to keep an eye of price for various searches. Even if you end up spending a little more on months you don't use it that much, it is peace of mind and predictable overhead.

As a repossession account, you do not get a lot of stuff, like automobile information. The trouble with TLO,  is they have a bunch of folks in the compliance division and some have different mind sets than others regarding the judgment enforcement business. My advice is to keep calling compliance until you get a collection account approved.
