My question...could my call be tied to the same company??
Scammed no more
Russell Florence left me a threatening voice mail warning me that I would be getting served important paperwork next week from two complaints filed against my SS# (the SS# was not verified on message)
If contact could not be not made at my home, they would contact me at my place of employment (shows you how much they don?t know, I am self employed)
Called from 561-693-0159 and left the callback # 1-855-935-3665 and a ref. #
At no point during this aggressive voice mail did he identify his company or any affiliation to another company/individual. After calling both #?s on a Saturday?the first number just rang and rang?the 855 # had a woman?s voice on the VM greeting?only stating ?The Claims Department? asking the callers to leave a message and ref. # and the call would be promptly returned?.
This company is using my company?s phone number illegally, after you have given them your information and you receive a charge my 1-866 number will show up on your bank statement! The address works out to a PO box in a UPS store.
They use the fallowing phone numbers
I have filled a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission where you can report the scam, the number is 1-877-FTC-HELP, The case number is 38786421
If any one of the poster on here are working for the company AFG & ASSOCIATES, you have selected to use a company?s number that specializes in Data collection and management and we will be finding your real names and be contacting the police!
I have dealt with them and they are professional and worked with me to find a payment plan i could afford. NO harrasment or threats. I am almost paid off and proud of it!
Cancel your card!! this happened to me they will take out more than you agreed...may clean out your card...
I have been getting the same calls. They start a 8am in the morning...unknown caller on my cell. They dont leave a message all the time. When they do they say I have 48 hours to settle this matter. They are not allowed by law to threaten people. And its funny...when they call they are using a written script..because they say the same thing everytime they leave a message...its fraud ..feel for this before...and they started taking more fr4om my card that was agreed upon...they will clean out your bank card.
Pay your bills
None of you would have anything to worry about if you simply pay your bills on time. Then you wouldn't have to worry about things like this happening, also if you fall for this then you only have yourself to blame for not be more diligent and looking into this matter. Now I know for sure that the AFG & Associates located in South Florida is a legit company cause their office is no more then 20 feet away from building. But there is one located out of California that is a scam and that people should watch out for
I HAVE BEEN GETTING CALLS FROM THESE SCAMERS FROM 954-346-4084 AND LEAVING ME MESSAGES ABOUT A WARRANT FOR MY ARREST. HOWEVER WHEN I CALL THEM THEY DO NOT ANSWER THE PHONE, BUT A RECORDING SAYS THEY ARE CLOSED.
Actually, if they are a real company and not a scam, they are the most unprofessional group I have ever had the dis-pleasure of speaking to. I am a law student and know better than to fall for bull-s... scammers like these people. You are very smart for leaving this company if in fact you are telling the truth.
If your ex company is ligitimate then why they using phony court file numbers etc to scare you into paying an old debt? Get real too many complaints have already been logged against AFG and if anyone ever shows up at my door to serve papers he will face a sheriff with who is aware of this scam!! and he will be arrested for trespassing!! Plus my mean dog will attack him!!
THEY CAN TAKE IT TO THE MAX FOR ALL I CARE. LET THEM CATCH ME IF THEY CAN. ITS THAT SIMPLE!!!
Very professional? I just had one of the agents cuss me out over the phone when I wouldnt agree to electronic payments because this company isnt with the BBB. This company sucks and so does everyone who has ever worked there.
I had a different number but was AFG and same thing. They called a relative and told them I was being served papers in a county four hours away from me so I called that county court house and they had no record of it and said they would mail any thing in regards to serving me. My relative then gets another call a few days later saying the case has been moved to the court in my local county and being served papers by 3pm ( call was around 2pm). I called and talked to them and they kept saying it was a debt owed. I had paid it off years ago but no longer have proof of paying since check was converted into a ACH so no copy of check sent back to me or on record other than amount and check number. My questions is if they are legit then why do they say I am about to be served etc.......No one can be honest any more?
This is a scam, thank God I never talked to them!!!
They keep leaving messages on my answering machine that I am going to be served. Thank God I checked into it before talking with them! I am so sick of scammers!!! THANK ALL OF YOU FOR POSTING!!!
Im headed to see them
You can too, here's the address:
2321 East 4th Street Suite 449 , Santa Ana , CA 92705
Tired of Scams
This company is now using the following phone number : 1-855-309-0252
Do not believe these lying b*****d. They're going to ruin your life if you let them... You cannot be arrested for not paying a debt.
I think I have found where these b*****ds are located and I'm going to pay them a visit.
Legit collection agencies don't pay morons like you to shill online for them. Thus we can correctly conclude that it is a SCAM and that you are one of the SCAMMERS.
Now go back to the boiler room, your crack pipe's getting cold!
How is it a scam? You took out a loan or line of credit from a private money lender. This company baught your debt from that lender and now owns it. They call you and give you a chance to pay it back voluntarily or they have every right to sue you and place a judgment against you through small claims court and at that point can garnish taxible income. Pay ur bill or they will have a judge take it from your paycheck its that simple.
Calling and calling and got the wrong person
why are you calling
This is Allied Financial Group (AFG) and they are a collection agency.
This company calls saying that they are the Riverside County Clerks office. The County does not have this number and I believe so\meone is trying to extort monies.
This is Allied Financial Group and Associates, They are a law firm, they specialize in collecting old charge off accounts for banks and settlements out of court. They called me looking for my ex wife... I think the bi*ch is in jail. Good luck finding her...
I used to work for this company, accusing a money of extortion is wrong. We were very professional and dedicated to fixing this countries economy offering people great settlements before we took them to court. I left for a real estate job but the time spent at that company was professional and law abiding.
Said they were the county clerks office and were sending the police out if I didn't call back immediately.
LAW FIRM / DEBT COLLECTOR
Got a call - caller ID was "Pioneer Human Services" and the phone # was 206-768-8910 which is a Fax # for a local government agency. They told my roommate to have me call this 877 800 1269 number with a case number so that they could serve me a summons. The recording did not give any company name and asked me to leave my case number.This is a little odd! I'll keep you posted.
