Although the senex Private Investigation Agency is not a debt collection agency, it nonetheless works very regularly with creditors and their lawyers to help recover large amounts of money.

With its many successes in this area, the agency has forged a solid reputation in debt recovery assistance.
Amicable and judicial debt recovery
The first step in recovering an unpaid claim is amicable recovery. This requires regular telephone reminders to his debtor and to put him on notice to pay by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt to provide a formal proof (this formal notice must be provided in case of legal proceedings).
If the invoices still remain unpaid, it is time to move on to the second step: collecting information about the debtor in order to proceed with a forced recovery, also known as judicial recovery.
This collection of information is necessary to ensure that the debtor has not changed address and is solvent. When a debtor has disappeared and is hiding, the agency senex Private Investigator is then asked to proceed to its location.

Taking precautionary measures before judicial recovery
In the event of judicial recovery, SENEX Detective advises its clients, whenever its possible, to take precautionary measures.
It all about seizing, as a precautionary measure, any liquidity, or proceeding with a conservative judicial mortgage towards a real estate property.
These measures are taken according to the extent of the amount owed by the debtor.
