If you have Insight Mercantile Debt chasing you for debt, then an old debt of yours has been purchased. Typically, Insight Mercantile Debt will purchase in bulk debts from creditors, who have tried and failed to get consumers to repay credit cards, loans etc They buy for around 10% and add huge amounts of interest on top.
However, they are now adding to their usual strategies of chasing consumers for unpaid debt. Although letters,emails and calls to work will be used, they now are targeting social media. If you have LinkedIN, Instagram, Facebook, or even Snapchat, they will find it. If you have any photo tagged with friends, a current friend list showing, photos of a work lunch, then an employee of the debt collection agency will use this to track your colleagues and friends down, for the sole purpose of embarrassing you into paying.

New technology coming onstream is boosting capabilies to claw back cash from wayward debtors. Technology could, for example, sift through large volumes of data, to indicate the most effective times for contacting people who owed money. It can also indicate the most effective medium – such as text, phone or email – for contacting different debtors.

Your first reaction may have been, you do not owe the debt, that it wasn’t your fault. However, Insight Mercantile Debt will not disappear once they begin chasing you. Once your initial anger has subsided, you need to disperse ideas of suing them, swearing at them, or arguing until they have gone. Now is the time to plan a strategy on how to beat them.
What happens if I don’t pay back Insight Mercantile Debt?
The most effective method is harassment, multiple calls to your mobile and landline all day every day. A favourite strategy is adopting social media. Do you have a Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, where one day you listed your previous and current employers? They will call them.
Have you tagged friends in posts when you attended that BBQ last weekend, they will ‘friend’ them, contact and message them. When it escalates, they will contact your work and threaten a garnishee order. When accounts/HR requests to speak to you privately, it can feel like the most desperate and embarrassing situation you have ever experienced at work, until the gossip begins.
How is this all legal you may ask, they bought an old debt for $3000 and out of the blue, years later, they are demanding $20,000, of which $17,000 is pure interest. I can also inform you, that on average, a debt collector purchasing bulk debts from banks and lenders, pay around 10% of face value. The creditors are happy to receive some cash and the collectors add massive profit onto the price before chasing you.
Are Insight Mercantile Debt calling you 100 times a day at all hours?
Now you may have already tried to negotiate with Insight Mercantile Debt directly, so some important issues you need to realise. Only the head of legal, has the power to negotiate any real results for you. They do not sit behind a desk with a headset on, you do not call the number and have legal answer it. You do however, get to speak with a commission paid sales agent, who will tell you anything to secure payment over the phone, so they might be able to hit their personal daily target. You only ever communicate with a debt collector in black and white.
It is time these companies are held accountable for their actions and that the regulatory bodies as well as parliament investigate extensively the situation under which they act today.
