I received a letter dated 2/16/2009 from Alliace One advising that they are collecting a debt I have with Capaital One. I called Capital One and verified that they do not use a Third party to collect any debt. They advised me that I am in good standing with them. I did report this to Capital One and to the Federal Trade Commission. We need to make aware that these people are to scam people.

Best course of action

AUTHOR: Debt Collector - (U.S.A.)

Always have a recent copy of your CBR.

Verify its accuracy against all known open tradelines you have.

This will help ensure your credit worthiness and good name.

If there is something there in your CBR you do not recognise, then you know you MAY have a problem.

Start by contacting the creditor/3PDC and asking for a validation of debt, also dipute the report with the CRA that is showing the derogatory information. This can often clear things up quickly, suck as confused common/simular names.

Most all credit/finance companies do their own collections 120/180 days past due, once the account reaches charge off, then the accout/s is/are shopped around to possible 3PDC.

Most customer service departments/reps have basic access and basic information, always escalate up, the person at the next level almost always has more options and can tell you more about whats what with you account.

COLLECTION AGENCY ON THE VERGE OF CLOSING IT DOORS

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

So it is going after anyone they can harrass into paying them

DON'T PAY A DIME, but send them a cease communications letter

www.budhibbs.com - for more info on how to deal with them

This is what is posted about Alliance One on the Bud Hibbs site.
Alliance One, Inc. is headquartered out of Trevose, Pennsylvania but they have call centers all over the world. This company has managed to gobble up several different debt collectors and bring them under their umbrella.
Alliance One announces the acquisition of Pacific Coast Collections Inc., (PCC) located in San Diego, California.

PCC had a terrible reputation for abuse of consumers; let's hope they clean up the dirty mess left by PCC.

Why does this agency seem to be crumbling under it's own management?

Just how bad is the training in San Diego? Why does management allow so many violations of the FDCPA? Are collectors REALLY sent out to homes and businesses to effect collections? Just how desperate are Marlene and Michael Hale to hold onto power at Alliance One? Will they really go to any ends to effect collections?

If this sounds like a sick soap opera than you need to stay far away from Alliance One and it's cast of cast offs. This is a sinking ship with rats all over the place. Everyone needs to sat far away from them, least they be caught up in the stink of this organization.

Color Alliance One as Alliance GONE by using the cease-comm letter on them.
