They will have contacted you to inform you that you have a debt accruing, confirm the amount you owe, detail any charges and ask you make a payment quickly so the debt can be settled.
The letter from NCO might also state that a field agent will be paying you a visit soon at your home address, and that you must make a payment to settle your debt immediately. Do not ignore this letter! NCO Europe will also most probably call you multiple times a day.
Any field agent who attends your home on behalf of NCO Europe will be looking to seize assets as a form of repayment of the debt.
What if NCO have contacted me?
If NCO Europe have written to you then it is imperative that you take action now. Do not think that ignoring the letter will make the problem go away. In all likelihood this could make things worse.
