Hi,

I would very much appreciate it if anybody who has ever used the services of a collection company in Spain (particularly in Barcelona) could share his/her experiences on the matter (either here or privately, writing to rosa.diez@telefonica.net).

I have been trying for nearly half a year to have over 2,000 Euro paid and to no avail. I have met lots of people, though! Now I'm in touch with many translators in the same situation and we have the name of this particular client in every payment list we know of.

Some of us joined forces and hired one of these companies nearly three months ago. However, we have had no news so far and nobody answers our calls, so we're a bit worried. Another company has promised us to collect the debt in a maximum of three months, but we don't know if we should trust them, although they have already collected another debt from our client.

Please do not name clients in your replies to this post.

Thanks a lot,

Rosa
