“The cheque is in the mail”
If the cheque hasn’t been sent, why lie about it? Bill collectors aren’t dumb. If you really did make the payment, have proof ready. They will ask for it.
“Let me speak to your manager!”
It’s a collection agency; do you really believe that you will get your way with a manager? The message will be the same: “You owe money, it needs to be paid”. Quite often you will get transferred to their buddy sitting in the next cubicle who pretends to be management. Then you are in the classic, good cop, bad cop scenario.
And last but not least, the worst thing someone in your house can say when you are away is:
“Oh, they aren’t here right now, they are away on vacation.”
If you are on vacation and you have bill collectors calling, something is wrong with your priorities. The bill collector will be all over you like white on rice when you get back.
Bill collectors are pretty sharp, don’t try to pull a fast one on them. If you are getting collection calls, its time to do something about the credit card debt you owe.
