Hi dear colleagues!

I have a payment problem with a Swiss translation company. They owe me and two other translators +5,500 EUR since December 2014. We are looking for a Swiss debt collector willing to take on the collection job. We would be very grateful for some suggestions about debt collector firms. Preferably in the kanton Obwalden and/or near Sarnen. And preferably some smaller firm (not Intrum Justitia for example).

Thanks!

Rgds / Christer Heljestrand

Debt collection May 17, 2016

Hi Christer,
Sorry to hear about your problems!
Just one question: Did you already contact the local debt enforcement office? This would be the official procedure.
Regards,
Irene

Betreibungsamt? May 17, 2016

Hi again: Those are the "Betreibungsamt"? I did contact them, still no reply. I just want to open up a Plan E as well, my so called Plan A to C didn´t work out very well. I have tried to collect the debt myself, then I hired a Spanish debt collector (who "stole" another 150 euro from me) and then I have been talking to a lawyer in Switzerland. That last option is a bit risky and above all, could be very expensive. I don´t want to lose more money on this. Apart from the real money, I already spent some +60 working hours on the matter (during 18 months).

So I´d be grateful if you could give me some tips about debt collectors in Obwalden. Preferably someone small and hungry ... Thanks!

Betreibungsamt May 17, 2016

Hi Christer,

Yes, this is the «Betreibungsamt» and you definitely need to follow the official procedure. From your profile I saw that you know German (at least as a source language). So have a look at the following link where you can fill in the relevant form online:

Hope that helps!
Irene
