I recieved a call this morning at work on my work phone from a Roosevelt Johnson from Allen, Lewis and Associates. He said he was an attorney and that I had two charges pending on me regarding my child. He spoked very fast with legal words so I had stopped him to ask some questions. He said I had defrauded my daughter old daycare and owed $1200.00. He said he ran my social security number and saw that I have never been in trouble before. He wanted to give me a chance to pay the 1200.00 today because they can arrest me at my job. I told him that I was waiting on the owner of the daycare to fix my bill because it was a billing error. He said I had til 4:00pm today to retain an attorney. I asked for his number and he gave me a 1800 number. I asked him what was wrong with the local number he was calling from(I have caller ID) and he didnt answer me. I told him I will call him back and he rudely hung up.

Bud Says                                Consumer Comments Below
 
A Quote From Their Website: "Debt collection requires a delicate balance of both collection technique and knowledge of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. All Allen, Lewis & Associates personnel are thoroughly trained in debt collection." Jeannie Hecht and husband Robert Hecht are the owners of Allen, Lewis & Associates. Allen, Lewis & Associates, Inc. is NOT, I repeat NOT a law office. There are NO attorneys there. Only a bunch of jerks who like to beat up on people over the phone to try and con you out of your money. Jeannie Hecht and hubby Robert Hecht, the owners of Allen, Lewis & Associates DO have lawyers. They hire them to defend themselves against the many lawsuits filed against them for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Sleazy, liars, con-men and lawbreakers, like to collect using threats of legal actions and intimidation. This is a SLEAZY group of social misfits, untrained and unprofessional money grubbers who will tell you anything, so long as it results in them making money. The Hecht's are why we have a FEDERAL LAW to regulate the activities of debt collectors. Liars, thieves and con-men aptly fits this organization of losers and con artists. Here is what they say on their website, is this truth or more collection agency b.s.?? "Debt collection requires a delicate balance of both collection technique and knowledge of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. All Allen, Lewis & Associates personnel are thoroughly trained in debt collection. Every employee realizes the importance of representing your best interest by treating your customers with courtesy and providing knowledgeable information and facts about their responsibilities in resolving their obligation with your organization.  At Allen, Lewis & Associates, both you and your customers will be handled professionally and respectfully, with careful attention to details that are important to you." DO YOU THINK THEY ARE WELL TRAINED PROFESSIONALS? WERE YOU HANDLED WITH RESPECT? WERE THEIR COLLECTORS KNOWLEDGEABLE? HOW ABOUT THE COURTESY? Paying ANY money to this sleazy band of collectors will only make you worse off than you are.
 
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.      Email for Assistance

re:

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Never assume that any legal threat for debt collection is a real legal threat. Debt collectors will often pose as (or pretend they work for ) attorneys to scare you into paying...If you have any doubts, ask for their license # in the state bar association, then call your state bar association to verify the attorney's information. If they refuse to give this info to you, then the legal threat is bogus....
