2011-06-06 20:46:17
this number has called me at least once a week for about 2 months
2011-06-06 20:46:17
Allied Intrstate (not a typo) calls at least once every day, WITH RECORDED MESSAGE TO CALL THEM BACK ABOUT AN URGENT MATTER. Has been going on for 2 months.
2011-06-06 20:46:17
Each day I wish I didn't have a recycled phone number that apparently belonged to a deadbeat woman named Shirley who seems to owe lots of people money.

That said, this is a collection agency that won't stop calling you no matter what you do.  They just don't care.  They get paid a percentage of what they recover so they will keep trying even if the information they have is wrong.  All you can do is not answer.
2011-06-06 20:46:17
A collection Agency. When I answered it had a message with a number to call them back. It you can get a address then you can send them a certified letter telling them to not call you. If they do then you could file a lawsuit against them.
2011-06-06 20:46:17
This number called me today-however, they called my dedicated fax line. They hung up when the fax started up. I don't owe anyone anything, my credit score is great, so I don't know why they called. besides, we are on a DNC list. I hope they do not continue to call, or I will report them to the state.

My mother passed away 7 months ago and my father has been receiving calls from this number. He talked to them once and they said that he had an outstanding debt, but wouldn't give him much information so he hung up on them. I want to know what I can do to get these people off my father's back. He has no outstanding debts.
2011-06-06 20:46:17
323-372-6323 calls 3-4 times a day at my main work number. (I'm the receptionist so I get the calls) Hangs up before I can answer or I answer and they hang up. I called the number back and got a woman who said, "Hello". I could hear lots of people in the backround- call center type backround noise. I told her what I'd been experiencing with this number. She asked for the number being called- I provided her with the number and she said the reason for the call was for a Larry Minerd which we have no Larry Minerd. (sp?) She said she would remove our number from the list.
My suggestion- call them back & see why they are calling you. The lady I got was very helpful & I was on and off the phone in a minute.
2010-09-15 20:51:44
that's exactly what I got.  I won't be answering my phone from that number.  someone had my number before & I'm STILL getting calls for her after more then a year!  Evidently she's still giving out her old cell number.

This company keeps calling my cell phone and my provider said there is no way to block their calls.  I do not have any credit card debt and I do not list  my cell phone on credit applications, so they should not be calling me.  If they were a legitimate collection agency they would be sending letters and not harassing phone calls.
2010-05-30 18:49:16
These MFs have been calling my number ever since I've had it, almost 6 years.  Apparently, they are looking for the person who had the number about 10 years ago.  I have told them probably 300 times that they have the wrong number.  I was just dozing off, when the retards called again.

I seem to have gotten onto some kind of ridiculous list of fake collections agencies.

I just went and checked my free annual credit report.  Exactly as I expected it to be.  No black marks.  No unpaid debts.  No accounts in collection.  No late payments.  No accounts I don't recognize.

It's a great thing to do every so often.  Good for your peace of mind that nobody has stolen your identity.  Someone above posted a link to annualcreditreport.com which is the one I always recommend for people too.  Freecreditreport.com does a lot of advertising but they make it a pain to actually get a FREE report.  They all try to sell you a service which does regular credit checks and sends you your FICO credit score which they are not legally obligated to give you for free every year unlike your basic report.

Annualcreditreport literally took me about 2 minutes and I had my equifax report sitting in front of me.

As for Allied Interstate I have no intention of calling them back.  I just FINALLY seem to have gotten off the calling list for FFG & Associates, another bogus "debt collector".  If you ignore them long enough they'll leave you alone.  

If you feel like you have to call them back, be smart and don't give them any information except the phone number they already have.  Don't tell them your name.   If they're legitimate they should be able to tell you who they are looking for at that number.  If it's not your name they ask for, tell them so and also ask for the agent's name, employee ID number and the address of the call center.

A fake business will hang up on you right there.  A legit one will give you the info, at which point you tell them that if they call this number again looking for the wrong person you'll report them to your state's attorney general for fraud and harrassment.

Yes, my husband and I have been receiving calls from this number(323-372-6323), the allied interstate number, and now a new number - I don't know if they are related - verde ridge, 480-557-0234.  The only thing I can think of that started these annoying phone calls into motion is... my husband and I are in some credit card debt, I contacted a consolidation firm named CareOne, when they wanted to charge us for information that we could get on our own and basically do nothing more than talk down our debt with our creditors, I told them that their services weren't what we needed at this time and told them I would contact them if and when we needed their help.  It has been since then that we have be getting the phone calls, are they related?  I don't know, but it seems that way!  I have not been answering when the number seems shady, however a person can only take so much calling.  I am going to try the suggestions posted by ec on Nov. 27, 2007.  Thanks
2009-12-01 14:13:32
They can do this because the call centers are not in the U.S.  They are just over the border in Canada or in Mexico.  This is how they are getting by in not being held accountable to the U.S. National do not Call List.

This won't stop the calls, but is great fun.

Go to a sporting goods store and purchase a coach's whistle.
These are nice and loud.

Next time these dirtbags call, blow your whistle into the phone - hard.

Try it and sooner or later you'll be sitting around hoping they call again...

From Federal Trade Commission Website ? FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT
Debt Collection FAQs: A Guide for Consumers
If you?re behind in paying your bills, or a creditor?s records mistakenly make it appear that you are, a debt collector may be contacting you.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation?s consumer protection agency, enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you.
Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.
Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.

What types of debts are covered?
The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn?t cover debts you incurred to run a business.

Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place?
No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they?re told (orally or in writing) that you?re not allowed to get calls there.

How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?
If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter ? even if you don?t think you owe the debt, can?t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don?t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector ? in writing ? to stop contacting you. Here?s how to do that:
Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a ?return receipt? so you?ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt.

Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?
If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don?t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people ? but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.

What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt?
Every collector must send you a written ?validation notice? telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don?t think you owe the money.

Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don?t think I owe any money?
If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don?t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.

What practices are off limits for debt collectors?
Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:
    use threats of violence or harm;
    publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);
    use obscene or profane language; or
    repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone.

False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:
    falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;
    falsely claim that you have committed a crime;
    falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;
    misrepresent the amount you owe;
    indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren?t; or
    indicate that papers they send to you aren?t legal forms if they are.

Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:
    you will be arrested if you don?t pay your debt;
    they?ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or
    legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don?t intend to take the action.

Debt collectors may not:
    give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;
    send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn?t; or
    use a false company name.

Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:
    try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt ? or your state law ? allows the charge;
    deposit a post-dated check early;
    take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or
    contact you by postcard.

Can I control which debts my payments apply to?
Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don?t think you owe.

Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?
If you don?t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt.
Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don?t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.

Can federal benefits be garnished?
Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:
    Social Security Benefits
    Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits
    Veterans? Benefits
    Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits
    Service Members? Pay
    Military Annuities and Survivors? Benefits
    Student Assistance
    Railroad Retirement Benefits
    Merchant Seamen Wages
    Longshoremen?s and Harbor Workers? Death and Disability Benefits
    Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits
    Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.
    Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance
But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans.

Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law?
You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can?t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney?s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector?s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.

What should I do if a debt collector sues me?
If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights.

Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?
Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General?s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General?s office can help you determine your rights under your state?s law.

Bud Says                Consumer Comments Below

This company is a class action lawsuit waiting to happen. Sloppy record keeping, failure to validate at every level, under-trained, uneducated collectors SEVERELY lacking in Fair Debt Collection Practices Act training.

Intellirisk must be making BIG bucks in collecting because they sure don't spend it to insure they comply with the laws. Student loans with these idiots is a nightmare. Most Allied collector's don't have a clue in handling even the most basic of consumer complaints. Loans that have been paid, in the wrong names and outdated credit bureau reporting are fast targets for lawsuits because Allied is unable or unwilling to respond.

If you receive a collection notice from Allied DISPUTE IT! Even though you will never receive a reply, it is important that you use the law to your advantage. Allied aptly fits the saying; "the right hand hasn't a clue what the left hand is doing" Brain-Dead! Idiots! Untrained!

May I state again....THANK GOD FOR THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT!! Someone in Washington must have had a dream about companies like Allied to enact the law. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!


CAUTION: I recommend you NEVER disclose your bank account or credit card information to a debt collector, as you risk them emptying your account, or maxing out your credit card. If you feel they are reporting on your credit bureau files in error or need assistance in dealing with them, email  the details w/your location.  Assistance and referral to a consumer legal specialist may be available.

They left a message saying that it was to collect a debt, I called back cause I know I don't owe anything,they asked for a person I don't know, I let them know that I don't know the person they asking for and that she doesn't live here,...the guy told me that he were going to take my number out of their list but, they keep calling!!!!!

A computer called, and when I picked up, it gave me an 800 number to call because of a bill they say is owed (they don't say who owes it, the amount, or what it's for).

I called the 800 number and asked that they not call my number again, and they wanted my name.  I told them they aren't getting my name until they tell me who they are calling and why.  The man said "have a nice day" and hung up on me.

They keep calling and are very abusive and threating. When we ask what it is he yells and states he is talking and dont interupt and says we have to pay on a account that is not there and will not provide any info on their so call account in collections.  He has said he is Tom Hansen but no one in the company and verify that. We have reported them to us attorney general, Ohio attorney general, and to the phone list.
