In 2004 I received a speeding ticket by the Yelm Police. The ticket was sent to Alliance One a/k/a Allied...
Alliance One has listed the same item on all three of my credit reports 8-9 times. Every time one gets removed the make up a new number and relist. Have hired an attorney who said I will get somewhere around $1000 for each plus lawyers fees. Then it will be gone. If you have problems like this choose a quality credit reporting consultant to sue.
Ok so where do I begin. Had an unpaid ticket I forgot about. Called Alliance One to set up payment arrangment so I wasn't driving around on a suspended license. When I called Alliance One and made my payment I SPECIFICALLY asked the woman on the phone "so am I good to drive now" she replied "YES... it can take 1-3 days to show in the system but here is the reference number that u made payment and should you get pulled over give it to the officer and when he types it in it will showed u paid and ur good to drive" WELL WOULDN'T U KNOW IT, I get pulled over the next day cuz the cop ran my plates and they showed suspended license for registered owner. I explain to the officer what the woman at Alliance One said and handed him the reference number. He said my license was showing suspended and the refernece number wasn't doing or showing anything! He wrote me a court date citation for driving on a suspended in the 3d and explained I was lucky he wasn't taking me to jail. Now I get to pay an attorney. My attorney and I both called Alliance One to get the recording of that woman telling me to go ahead and drive, so I can get this ticket (crime) dropped and thrown out of court, and they will not release it to me. Since we asked for the recording ALL OF A SUDDEN I am getting tons of calls to my cell phone from a recording and a man saying I owe SEVEN THOUSAND+ DOLLARS in unpaid tickets! ARE THEY SERIOUS??!!! They r threatening to suspend my license again if I don't pay them and they will not leave me alone. They r even threatening to put a lean against my house! Somebody please tell me what I should do. Help me :) any advice please

I had a credit with Credit One. Until i lost my job in December I was never late and paid every month. I cannot collect unemployment because i worked part time. I have told them this for 5 months. They call every day, seven days a week, starting at 8:15 am, every 20 minutes, until 9pm!!!. I have caller id on my tv screen and can prove this beyond a shadow of a doubt. I have written them and faxed them the FTC laws about harassment and to cease and desist and they just keep on calling. They even went so far as to call one day and pretend to be law enforcement out of florida with an urgent legal matter. I called the telephone company servicing that number and they took care of that matter. But saying you are someone you are not to collect a debt is also illegal. I have filed a report with the better business bureau, now here, and the attorney general and FTC are next.

I had a DUI some years ago and was convicted last year at the Kirkland, WA court. Yes, I know stupid thing. Court ordered $2, 525 in fines and penalties. As I am on a limited excess income with kids and mortgage, I was unable to pay everything up front. Kirkland, WA contracts with AllianceOne to make payment plans. I started off fine but December came around and I did not get a paycheck. I was unable to make the December payment to AllianceOne. In January, I did get a paycheck and sent them $500 (5x my normal payment after one missed payment). I get a letter shortly after from AllianceOne saying that I have $1, 130.96 in new Interest and Late Fees! No phone call or letter from them indicating this might happen. I was just a few days over 1 month late on the payment. The late fees and interest are 50% of the total amount owed to them.
Is it just me or does it seem like a conflict of interest having a company that does collections also handle payment arrangements for the courts? I also received a letter around the same time as the Late Fee/Interest notification that my license was going to be suspended because this item had been placed in collections. So if I do not pay their exorbitant fees, I will loose my drivers license. These guys really have me bent over.
I do not know if there is any recourse for the Fees/Penalties. I am writing to the Kirkland court to see what they can do to remove from collections but do not have too much hope.
I could understand $30 to as much as maybe $100 in late fees for this. But $1, 130.96? Really? This is just wrong...
Alliance One is a very rude and harassing company and appears to be part of Capital One, since payments are made to Capital One Solutions. Just so you know, I have cancer, and have not been able to work regular for over a year now. I have a family member that has helped, but their funds are limited also. This family member will only help, if I can settle with the credit card. I have been trying to settle this account since Jan 2010. Capital One has sent my account to their Alliance One Office for collection. I had great credit before cancer, I always was able to take care of my bills. But life has changed, and I am offering them a fair settlement, but they want more and have told me they will take everything I have, if I don't start paying. The sad thing is there is not much for them to get.
But for others with the same problem, answer your phone, they can only call you once a day. By law if you tell them to stop calling your neighbors, job, spouse, or anyone else they have to stop. The only way to stop the home phone calls is to write a letter and I would sent it certify mail, so you can prove it was received. And also, start making notes of all communication with Alliance One, you may need it later. Good Luck!
Harrasing calls to my job; now calling my neighbors asking questions about my description and habits.
My daughter and her son had a credit card bill with Chase, They were unemployed and making min payments. They were contacted by Alliance one and told if they could pay a large sum in a week, they would set up a low bill to pay each month. My Husband used his Wells fargo card to pay $400.00 and my son in laws mother used her credit card to pay $400.00. A month later they get a notice from chase, that they did not make their payment and will now take them to court. They now have legal fees and court fees and an extra $1000, 00. So Alliance one collected the money and NEVER PAID CHASE!

Today Wednesday May 26, 2010, i received a letter from Alliance One telling me that i owe 2 tickets from 2008...
Tried to make a web payment for a ticket fine (That quadrupled when it went to them) The credit card transaction failed 2 times but they charged me 5 dollars for each "attempt" This is ridiculous and most likely illegal.
I had tickets that I paid in part from over 7 years ago out of Kitsap County WA. I don't recall failing...

A year ago I was pulled over for speeding and much to my surprise I ended up getting arrested for Driving with a suspended License. My License had been suspended several months previously without my knowledge and apparently Alliance One had sent me a letter of warning. I didn't have a problem with any of that - I assumed I overlooked the letter - I asked the Officer what I needed to do and he explained that I needed to get my License reinstated which REQUIRED that I pay off the Debt (From a $100 speeding ticket that went to collection with Alliance One)
So the next day I went into Alliance One and gave them $300 dollars -
In fact - Had I NOT - I would not be able to get my License active.
I paid them every dime and went into the DMV and I was good to go.
Recently I got a letter from them about an un-paid parking ticket -- So I called -
While I was on the phone the Operator informed me that I had an outstanding bill --
Guess what that was?
The original one - The one I paid - The one I HAD to pay in order to get my Licesne back.
And the operator made it known or clear to me that unless I paid this again my Licesne would be suspended again.
I was curious if Alliance One is run by the Mob?
Actually I don't want to come down on the Mob (Like the Italian Mob we think of in the Movies)
They seem more classy then Alliance One -
I think Alliance One has a mob mentality. They are white collar criminals that are getting away with red tape/supposed computer errors/ etc.
At the end of the day because they are in business with the courts and the DMV they have extra weight -
I believe this to be un-constitutional in fact.
I plan to take this as far as it needs to go -
All the way until they get hit with a major law suit.
They called and harassed my EX-wife for about a week, and her family. Then she agreed to get them the money they requested, which was about 5k. But they didn't take Visa... ok. Then they didn't call for about a week and I got a withdrawal from my account in her old name...
I caught it 6 days after it happened and my bank put a stop on the checks and the company... somehow I think their gonna do it again. As i didn't speak to them and there actually taking my money as we didn't separate our accounts yet. My ex doesn't even know it was them, the only reason I know now is because the bank draft came with alliance's name on it...
Yeah so i am probably gonna fly down there to talk with them and show them the errors of their ways over tea...
They keep calling me looking for some woman named Dolly. The past three days they have called me five times. Each time they called, I told them this Dolly person doesn't live here and asked that they remove my phone number. Since requesting my number be removed, I have spoken with Angela twice, some rude nasty guy named Josh, and another guy named Steve. I guess my request fell on deaf ears.
