Most of our members with delinquent accounts want to pay their debts, but they're scared and overwhelmed. Often, you are able to assist them in setting up a repayment plan that works for them and leaves them breathing a sigh of relief. Most members respond well when they realize you are trying to help them. You also use your multitasking skills to research transactions while on calls.
