Steps for Paying Off My Debt to Bowden McKenzie

If you have a debt to pay to Bowden McKenzie, or any financial institution, you have a few options.

Pay the Debt in Full

The best solution is to simply pay what you owe. If you can get the debt paid in full, the amount should come off your report. You will also no longer be hounded by the company to give them the money.

Request a Payment Proposal

If you truly do not have the ability to pay the money back, it is wise to set up a payment proposal. Ask the company to give you time to pay it all back in instalments. Let them know whether you can pay in either:

  • Monthly instalments
  • Weekly instalments
  • Bi-Monthly instalments

or some other interval. Tell them how much you can pay each time, and offer a payment method so they can take the money as intended.

Ask for a Debt Validation

Perhaps you're unsure whether you even owe this debt at all. You can request that the company sent you a letter verifying the money owed, the date it became listed as a debt, and who the original creditor was. With these details from companies like Bowden McKenzie, Moorcroft, Advantis or otherwise, you may be better able to determine if you do, in fact, owe the amount they say stemming from that original creditor/agency.
