I have been called four times total from Alliance One. They want to speak to a Linda. I have told them repeatedly that nobody by this name has or does live here and to not call again. Well, this week, Wednesday March 18 I got call three. I advised the female that no Linda lives here or had lived here and that my husband and I have had this phone number since November 18 2008. I then advised her I am a retired bill collector and I do know the law. I also told her if I get one more call from this company, after they have been informed three times they have the wrong number, I am going to file a complaint. She said she is handing this number to her supervisor to have it pulled. TADA!!! Today, Friday March 20 at 8:28 PM, I get another call wanting to know if Linda is here from the same damn company! I advised the female that this number was to be taken out of their system and repeated everything I told caller number three. I screamed to not call this number ever again! I then filed a complaint with my attorny general and the FCC. As a retired dect collector (first and third party and business to business collections) I know they are in violation of FDCPA. They are not allowed to call a third party but one time trying to locate a debtor. This is in section 808 paragraph 3. I guess they don't read very well. I hope this company gets shut down from what I have read about them. And, I hope the FCC does something about this company. Anyone else have this problem?

Been there....

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

I had AFNI calling here for someone I didnt know.....a lot. It was annoying, they'd call as late as 9pm....as early as 530 am. Ive had this same number for something like 5 years. I have no clue who the person was they were looking for. Initially I just hung up on em....over n over n over.

They didnt get the picture or they were just so accustomed to being hung up on that they just kept at it. One day they called......I didnt feel good and finally just said, "I dont know who this person is...they have never lived here....dont live here and will never live here. PLEASE stop calling me.

POOF !!!!! NO more calls. I guess I was lucky. Sometimes maybe it does pay to be nice

Kristen...

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

"Kristen" are you f*cking kidding? Bottom feeders like you call any and all numbers and you don't give a rats ass who pays as long as you get your money. Bottom feeders don't make money unless someone pays. Why don't you get a real job.

Katie, send them a cease communication letter (google it!). Send it CMRRR. After they receive it they are required by law to stop calling. If they continue, sue em..

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Are you that afraid to pick up your phone and be courteous?

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

No offense or anything, but are you really that afraid to pick up your phone and say sorry wrong number... that's all it takes. Honestly, they are just doing their job and it gets really aggravating calling tons of cranky people every day. If you really think about it, the people that work there don't really want to call you every day if its a wrong number. Its just a waste of their time, more than yours since they have to sit and wait for it to ring. It's not like the employee's are making tons of money, but at least they are working. And on top of that they do serve an essential purpose in our economy. By people not paying their bills, it falls on everyone else.
