I have been getting calls from allied interstate and have just ignored the message assuming it was from a...
Allied Interstate has been calling my cell phone number and then hanging up when I would answer. I used my home phone and called the number that showed on my cell phone. After pushing English button a man came on the phone. I said some one called my cell phone from this number. He wanted to know what my number was and I said not before you tell me who you are. He said this is Allied Interstate. I said okay I would like to speak to your complaints department. He said we don't have one. I wasn't surprised. He then went into trying to collect data from me. I said thank you and hung up. They weren't interested in helping me so why should I help them.
You are not allowed to call more than one time per day. Your number has been on my caller ID over 10 times today alone. I will report this to the FCC if it continues. Not leaving messages is completely unprofessional and unnecessary. When I try to call back, I get someone who doesn't seem to speak a word of English. I don't know who you are or who you represent (see the "no message" line above), but I have no business with you, and will not deal with you until you can conduct business in a proper and LEGAL manner.
I have been left recordings both at my office (I have no idea how these companies got my Direct Dial # at the office) and at my home under all kinds of company names that don't exist (including the latest, Allied Interstsate) about an unpaid debt for some Hispanic man. I have called the numbers left by these companies and found out about they were calling about this man who is no relation to me, nor do I know anything about him. I have been promised MORE THAN ONCE, after I explained the situation, that my phone numbers would be removed from their files. However, again today, I received the call from "Allied Interstate" about this same man! When I got a representative on the phone, I told him that I was tired of receiving these calls, that I have asked to be removed from their list, etc. He then, again, asked me about this same Hispanic man and I told him, again, I have no knowledge of this person at all. He got ugly with me when I told him that I consider these calls harassment and they had better stop NOW. A co-worker told me about your website, so I am filing a complaint against the above people. If I get another call from the other anonymous company, I will pass that number on to you, as well. This must stop. My privacy is being violated. I have no debt, and there is no reason for these companies to be calling me. It's not my problem they have a mixup in phone numbers, but I particularly resent being called at my office! How in the world did they get that number? Please see what you can do about this problem and get me relief. Thanks.
Received calls for several months from Allied Interstate. I Do Not Owe anyone and it appears they are 'fishing or hunting' for some one else. Even returned a call to their 800 number one time and the 'threatening message' was horrendous. Called the State Attorney General's Office, they advised I send a letter advising they must NOT contact this phone number again. Sent letter certified mail, but Allied refused to accept. Again called AG office and they referred me to the FTC. Called and filed a complaint. Everyone must call and file a complaint. [protected]. The more calls to the FTC the better outcome for the consumer.
I have been harassed with phone calls several times a day for months, asking me to pay a Sprint bill which is not mine.
I have never had a Sprint account.
When I called Sprint, they told me they couldn't help me unless I gave them an account number. How could I do that when I never had one!!
I checked my credit rating and it is all right so far, but that could change if Allied posts to it, and what part of "it wasn't me" don't they understand? The thief must have used the phone book.
Allied Interstate should be shut down. This company harasses me day and night. They even have me on speed dial for a debt I do not owe. It is over 10 years old and it is for a repossessed car my son had. The bank got there money through auction and still sold the debt to this company. I am in litigation with an attorney to stop them. Anyone else who has a problem with them should do the same. A good free consultation firm is - [protected]. They will call you right back, take your information and will help you get these sharks off your back and your telephone.
Look I'm going to make this simple, and I expect a torrent of shout downs from Allied because they know it's true but don't want you to know the facts about collection agencies.
First, they’re a collection agency, they can't sue you for one simple reason. They weren't a party to the original agreement between you and the original creditor.
The original creditor can sue you and has every right up to the time limits of your state.
The collector claims to be an agent but an agent is still not a party to the original debt. If you do somehow end up in court simply demand the signed document that shows you and the collection agency have an agreement. That will end their case abruptly because there is never any such document.
This process is called discovery and if the plaintiff can't produce evidence of their claim it's dead.
The one exception to the above...If you actually enter into a payment agreement with a collector. Now you have made them a party to the debt (actually a new debt since they have no relationship to the original debt) In that case you've made a business relationship with them and you're bound by whatever terms you agreed to with them.
So what's the solution, simple, don't respond to them at all. You won't get a fair deal, they won't stop bothering you and you'll never stop paying them if you enter into an agreement. There will always be an additional charge, fee or adjustment to keep you paying.
Also if they go as far as to try to bring you to court (which is laughable) make sure you never accept service. You are not under any obligation to identify yourself to anyone but a police officer. A process server is just a working stiff making minimum wage delivering court papers when they're not delivering pizzas. Also know that police officers are never off duty. That means any police officer performing process service for a civil matter is in direct conflict with his position. Criminal matters are a different area. The conflict stems from the state being barred from being a party to a private legal action to which they have no interest or participation.
If somebody strange walks up to you and asks if you're such and such just say no. If they can't serve you they can't sue you. There must be proper service for any civil action brought against you.
Finally, know that Allied is just one of many such operations all of which employ the same tactics. They're hoping to trick you into giving them money and holding you to an unfair contract.
Make sure to watch your credit reports too. Equifax is famous for siding with collection agencies and leaving negative information on your report. Keep filing challenges anyway. Make sure that the collection agency is allowed to show up as a creditor on your collection report. This is a common tactic to drive down your FICO score. They file a fraudulent claim as a creditor then claim delinquency on the account. Again if you don't enter into any agreements with the collection agency they have no legal basis to touch your credit report. These tactics have been successfully litigated in California and Equifax has been named as a party in many of these law suits. In every case I've looked at, the collection agency and Equifax lost the case and were forced to pay damages.
Plain and simple, you're in control, don't let anyone convince you otherwise.
This has got to be the rudest collection agency I have ever come across. They have done everything from calling over and over in a day, to saying harassing things, to actually calling me before 8 AM and telling me I am wrong it is 8 AM. Duh, I think I know what time it is, and when every clock in my house, including the computer and the cable company say it's before 8 AM, I wonder who is right here. The rudest they have ever been to me was over a 24 dollar fee from a storage unit that I left a few days after the first, literally. Somehow, though maybe not logical, I didn't want to send 24 dollars to someone that was talking to me like I am the bowel movements of a dog lying on a sidewalk. Somehow it left a bad taste in my mouth. And that silly lying piece of comment that was left by a "supposed" employee was so fake and so ###ic I can't even justify speaking more on it! What kind of person takes a job that constitutes them being rude and uncaring and obnoxious every day? Geez.
I am completely debt free and I still get calls from them (ALLIED INTERSTATE) almost every day. I have like an 815-850 credit score number and still I get recordings from them on my machine constantly. It could be for my ex-wife’s son. I wish they would leave a message and, at least, the first and last initial of the person owing them money. I will never call them back so this might go on for a few more years! Why on earth would I call them back if they are owed no money by me? This is the most random recording-string ever left on my machine! My caller ID in fact says ALLIED INTERSTATE [protected]. The message is that I am to call them back. Sorry, I do not call random people back that do not leave detailed messages on my answering device. These people are very unprofessional! Do they run a string of Pawn Shops too? Go to business school people and learn how to leave proper phone messages!
Got a call from a number associated with Allied Interstate. Very, very rude man demanded to speak with "Jan Larson." Told him he had the wrong number. Then he demanded to know if "Jan Larson" was one of my family members, neighbours, friends, etc.
Said he was going to keep calling until I told him what he wanted to know. Kept interrupting me. Also, they have called many times before, but if my boyfriend answers, they immediately hang up. COWARDS!
What kind of waste of oxygen spends their life doing this, anyway? And how sick do they have to be sound like they're enjoying it, as this man did?
On 4/21/08 in the middle of a very important call Allied Interstate Company called. I was unable to take the call and checked my messages. The massage said to call [protected] So I did. I asked them how they got my number. They hung up on me. I found this rude and so I gave them a dose of their own rudeness. I called them all day every few minutes. They told me they did not have time for this game. But they did ask me to call them so I continued. All day they have the ability to block my number. lol something we should have for them. But being a smart person I *67 and continued some more. They were able to block that as well so being a smart person I had an old calling card that was going to expire so I used that. I continued on with calling them asking if the calls bothered them. I think they might have gotten the point but am still not sure so I will call them tomorrow to be sure.
I work for a California county child support office and I have been receiving phone calls from this collection agency and previous ones for approximately 4 years. This is over a phone bill that is for someone I do not know and gave my office number as their contact number. I have explained several times and I guess they think I am lying. I am not the person they are trying to reach and am very upset as I have perfect credit and do not deserve the harassing phone calls. I have requested that they stop yet they do not. The number they leave to call back is [protected].
They start at about 8:00 AM, and call continuously all day - until about 8:00 PM. Calls from 5 to 30 minutes apart. It's very frustrating. They have not listened to my demands not to call and to only contact me via postal mail. The number above is the number they usually call me from. I don't know what else to do. I need these calls to stop.
I am mailing you in reference to being harassed by a comp. called Allied Interstate who as I understand it...
