Dear Colleagues,
Specially those living in the UK and more specifically in Scotland.
One of my customers in Scotland owes me about €4,500 since middle of December 2011.
After the third message asking for payment they stopped answering my messages and phone contact always reaches an answering machine.
I'd like to have suggestions of collecting agencies that work for foreigners.
Thanks in advance.

A good colleague of mine had good experience with CreditSafe ( ). An email mentioning that he would refer the nonpayment case to CreditSafe was enough to convince a previously rather stubborn client.

Best of luck,
