  • failure to account for the proceeds of any collection made or money received for payment or prorating to creditors
  • payment over the proceeds of any collection made or money received for payment or prorating to creditors
  • failure to return any sum received to a debtor that was not applied to their debts

Idaho collection agency and credit service oganization bonds for permittee are continuous until canceled. If the surety has reason to cancel this bond, it must provide 30 days of prior written notice to the Director of the Idaho Department of Finance and to the collection agency.
