Dean Kaplan, CEO of The Kaplan Group, a highly successful commercial collection agency, was recently interviewed by Yahoo! Finance.

Although the interview, titled “Confessions of a Debt Collector” focuses primarily on Kaplan’s specialty, large claim commercial collections, Kaplan also reveals many helpful tips for both those owing, and those owed, money. Among the more surprising piece of information shared is the idea that it is actually less expensive, and less painful, for both sides if they work with a collection agency. Kaplan also discusses some of his key techniques for working with those who owe money.

A frequent contributor to many websites, the interview is just one of many ways that Kaplan works to educate the public about debt and commercial collections. “I know that the collections business can have a bad reputation,” says Kaplan, “and as I discuss in the interview, our business is ripe for scams. I truly value opportunities like this to sit down and explain how the business works. It’s important that people understand both their rights and their responsibilities. I also want to make sure people are both aware of, and protected from, scams and other illegal collection techniques.”

Kaplan’s website has many free resources for both individuals and businesses who want to protect themselves from fraud and other forms of payment scams. Among the resources he offers are a credit application handbook (to prevent businesses from extending credit to fraudulent companies), information about the FDCPA for consumers, and an ebook on contract terms that help limit unpaid invoices. A monthly blog offers tips and advice for collecting unpaid invoices.
