- Be careful about using private information
Information such as birthdate, bank account numbers, income data and so on should never be revealed in a requisition, particularly if it is a "cold call" request to a new, unknown collection company. The name, address and phone number of the person who took out the education loan is all that's required, and even this should not be revealed before you enter into a business agreement with a collection agency. Therefore, you should write your letter carefully, in the form of a business letter, and ask the collector if they would be interested in taking on an assignment of this nature.

Explain that you will provide relevant contact information for the person who hasn't repaid their loan after the collector agrees to take the case. You can give certain details, such as explaining about a student loan repayment being reneged on, and that you need aggressive, but legal, collection services. Then, just sign off by printing your first and last names neatly.
Print out the letter, sign it in ink, and send it out. If you'd rather, email it to the collection agency. Note: You must be doubly careful about using private information when you're sending data over the Internet, as your data security may not be one hundred percent trustworthy.
