Dear Amra,
I can tell you one to avoid (in the UK) if you'd like to contact me privately. They were expensive and ineffective.
Kind regards,
Jenny.

Her Majesty's Courts Service Jun 16, 2007

Your friend can skip the collection agency and make a claim through Her Majesty's Courts Service. Info here:

http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/infoabout/claims/index.htm

Your friend can even file the claim online so there is no need to go to the court and file the papers.

http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/onlineservices/mcol/userguide/claimant/information.htm

https://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk/csmco2/index.jsp

It is considered a small claim if the amount is under £5,000.

You are entitled to claim the money owed, plus 8% interest and the court fee is reimbursed if the claim is successful.

My partner has used this service twice and has had good results both times. If your friend hasn't already done so, he or she should send a Letter Before Action by recorded delivery, stating that the company has 14 days to pay or he/she will begin a claim against them.
