Why do I need this bond?
Nevada collection agency surety bonds ensure that collection agencies adhere to all terms listed in Chapter 649 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. Under these statutes, collection agencies are prohibited from performing the following acts:
- using deceptive means or representations to collect any debt
- assigning or transferring any claim or account after termination or abandonment, unless prior consent is given by consumer for the assignment
- operating business or soliciting claims from any location or address other than the one listed on its license
- harassing a debtor’s employer to collect a claim
- advertising a claim for sale as a means to enforce payment
- publishing any list of debtors except for the benefit of stockholders in relation to its internal affairs
What’s the fine print?
If the bond is to be canceled or the liability reduced, the surety must provide notice to the state. These changes become effective 30 days after the receipt of the notice unless a later date is stated.
