Join the revolution in debt collection.
Back in 2013, after being treated badly while subjected to collections on a small balance; we realized there was something inherently wrong with the way debt collection was being done. We recognized an opportunity to build a system to fundamentally change the debt collection industry, so we created TrueAccord to turn collections into a recovery and reconciliation process.
Fast forward to 2017, and TrueAccord has already worked with more than 1.5 million consumers of major banks and issuers, eCommerce companies and direct lenders. Hundreds of thousands have dealt with their debts with convenient payment plans, customized scheduled, and easy documentation. We are on a journey to transform the debt collection industry while helping consumers reach financial health.
If you are owed money, owe money to anyone, or work in collections and want to be inspired - come join the revolution. Email us, call, or come to one of our events across the nation.
