recovery officer
 n.— «A new gang of robbers is on the city roads. They can deprive you of your car while you are heading to attend a cremation or are out with your family for the evening. They are law unto themselves and its enforcers as well. Police for them are a non-entity. They call themselves “recovery officers” of finance companies.» —“Recovery ‘offenders’ on prowl” by Pervez Iqbal Siddiqui in Lucknow Times of India July 5, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
