Vital Recovery Services, LLC and Vital Solutions Inc. are located in Georgia, but describe themselves as offering “fully licensed, national, third-party collection agency performing bad debt recovery and skip tracing services.” Vital Recovery Services, LLC and Vital Solutions Inc. employed Plaintiff Camille Ingraham as a Collection Specialist.
