Why a Florida Recovery Agent Association?

The first state association of collateral recovery specialists was organized in 1985. The association was created to advocate for the rights of licensed collateral recovery specialists. Instrumental in the development and passage of Florida law which regulates repossession activity in Florida, the association is still alive and well and remains a strong advocate for all Florida licensees. One license not included is that for sports betting. To find out more about how to make sports bets online, click here.

Since the re-organization in 2003, FLACARS continues to generate funds for lobbying efforts, college scholarships and charities.

FLACARS officers/members work diligently for the elimination of unlicensed, unprofessional and/or uninsured asset and collateral recovery practices.

Florida repossession law serves as a model for many states considering similar legislation. What happens in Florida is important to the collateral recovery industry nationwide.

We welcome and encourage all professional collateral recovery specialists to become members of FLACARS.

We would also like to welcome all financial institutions. You can be assured that if you are using one of our members, you have hired the most qualified and well trained professional in the industry!


A tow truck driver was found dead Friday morning, April 28th, under a vehicle that was attached to his truck. Plantation police said they were called about a traffic accident in a parking lot at 8100 W. Broward Blvd. Officers arrived to find the tow truck driver's body under the vehicle. The driver was identified later in the afternoon as Francisco Canjura, 34, of Tamarac.

The cause of death is under investigation, but one of the owners of the repossession company, Prowler Recovery, told Local 10 News reporter Layron Livingston that it appears that his employee didn't secure the vehicle well enough and the SUV ran over him.
"He was taking the car out of gear because it was an all-wheel drive vehicle," Stuart Weinstock said. "He got underneath it, didn't realize that he left the truck in drive and it crushed him."

Weinstock said Canjura worked for his company for 12 years.
"This kid was just a down to earth, good-hearted, hard-working, unbelievable individual, and for this to happen is just a mess, man," Weinstock said. A larger tow truck was brought it to lift the SUV so authorities could remove the victim's body.
