"Shark Patrol is a brilliant service that has significantly improved our debtor days and made collection of our overdues much easier."

"We explain to non-paying customers that if they do not promptly pay their outstanding account they'll be listed on Shark Patrol, and in almost every case they then fall over themselves to pay promptly."

"For those who still hold out Shark Patrol will go into bat with collection letters that achieve excellent results. Shark Patrol has become a valued part of our standard business and operating procedures, and merit our highest recommendation for the quality of their service!"
