The Massachusetts Debt Collector Bond is required to obtain a Debt Collectors License in the state of Massachusetts. This is a type of surety bond and is required by the Massachusetts Division of Banks. The license application is managed via the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) and the surety bond is filed electronically with the NMLS.  Per the State of Massachusetts, a debt collector is:

Any company or sole proprietorship that directly or indirectly collects or attempts to collect third party debt from Massachusetts consumers; and active debt buyers that collect purchased debt from Massachusetts consumers.
