This study researches debtors’ perception of debt collection agencies. The research data shows that a debtor perceives the debt collection as expensive, greedy and uncompromising as well as even sometimes extortionate and threatening. Yet positive perceptions appeared such as flexible, well mannered and polite. The debtor’s attitude towards debt collection agencies defines a significant part of the working environment of a debt collection agent – this study provides valuable information to inform the conduct of debt collection agents.
