What does DMS Debt Collection Process look like?

Looking at the website for DMS, it seems that the only option to make a payment is to do so over the telephone. There does not appear to be any online payment portal, which can make things harder to do.

Summary

Compared to other debt collection agencies out there, it does not seem that DMS are quite as modern in their approach. There is no online payment options and the information that is online surrounding them is relatively vague. Therefore it is hard to summarise quite what the experience with them would look like.
