Ad Astra Recovery Services, Inc., is a quality collection agency service that utilizes an experienced and dedicated team of professionals, along with leading technologies, to ensure efficient and reliable results for clients. Ad Astra Recovery Services is proud to uphold a high ethical standard in its collections services and maintains membership with ACA International (Association of Credit and Collection Professionals). The majority of collection agencies in the United States work on behalf of a third party. This means that companies or financial institutions looking to recover debts will outsource the work to a collection agency in order to contact consumers and workout payment plans and options. This role of collections agencies is in stark contrast to the public perception of what collection agencies do; many people believe that agencies actually purchase debt for pennies on the dollar and then work independently to collect the money for a profit. While banks make up the vast majority of businesses that contract collection agencies, there are a number of institutions that make use of agencies’ services. These institutions include hospitals, auto lenders, utility providers, and even the government.

Ad Astra Recovery Services, Inc., a Wichita, Kansas-based collection agency, serves loan companies throughout the United States. As an ethical company, Ad Astra Recovery Services understands and adheres to all laws governing the debt-collection industry, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Passed by the United States Congress in 1991, the TCPA is an emendation to the Communications Act of 1934 that places restrictions on telephone solicitation and the use of automated telephone equipment, such as automatic dialing systems, SMS text messages, and automated or prerecorded voice messages. Specifically, the TCPA prohibits solicitors from calling before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. local time, and it requires that they honor the National Do Not Call Registry. Additionally, the act requires solicitors to identify themselves and to provide the name of the company for which they are calling as well as the phone number and address at which it can be reached. If a solicitor violates the provisions of the TCPA, an individual can sue for up to $1,500 for each violation and may be allowed to seek an injunction against the solicitor.
