United Arab Emirates (UAE) Debt Collection – No Win No Fee 

Creditreform operates a global specialist International debt collections service. We have local offices and fully approved expert international debt collection agency partners in every country worldwide. All our International debt collection agency partners and offices operate on a No Win No Fee basis charging an agreed commission against monies recovered only. All our international offices and partners initiate the collection processes by sending the debtors a debt collection letter to introduce their involvement. 
Unlike Western countries, the United Arab Emirates treats debt as a criminal matter rather than a civil one. The result being that if a borrower is late with payments, they can face fines and imprisonment. Even after they are released, the bank may open a civil case against them which can result in further imprisonment. 
Main reasons why a local country debt recovery agency is so important rather than trying to recover from a debt collection agency UK are as follows:

The languages 
The laws
