I periodically receive phone calls from [protected] [Allied Interstate], which I understand via research is a collection agency of sorts. As I am virtually debt free, the company has no reason to contact me. I have blocked the number so it only shows as a missed call now. Typically, I never answer calls from numbers I do not recognize. However, I did one day and the automated system gave over to a person who asked for someone I have never even heard of, let alone knew. The caller was belligerent and frankly not of a rational mind.
You would think based on the number of complaints that abound on the internet about this company that some government agency would be all over the company. However, I suppose the government is too busy handing out taxpayer dollars to losers, liars and cheats. It is quick likely that the federal government has stroked a big check to Allied Interstate.
