    Overview

    Winning your case doesn’t mean much if you’re not going to get paid.  Debtors and their lawyers have more options than ever for hiding assets from their creditors, frustrating collection efforts. Creditors need to know how and where debtors can stash money and property, and then how best to seize it once they locate it.

    In just 90 minutes, you will learn the most-used ways debtors have to try to keep you from collecting against them; and the best strategies for overcoming those attempts. From potential sources of information to legal means of compelling friends, employers, and even attorneys to turn over property and information, this seminar is invaluable for anyone who is owed money.
