I received a call from "Out of Area" that listed the telephone number 614-901-7769. When I answered, there was a recorded message on the line that asked me to wait for an important announcement. Since I am on the national do not call list, I did hold on the line to make sure my number was removed from their records.

I waited about 1 minute for someone to pick up. The woman on the other end of the line sounded like she was at a frat party and asked very loudly to speak to someone who used to have my telephone number. I told her that she could not speak to that person, and not to call back here as I am on the do not call list. She became belligerent and started yelling at me to speak to this person.

I told her that person does not have this number any more, but even if she did, I would not allow her to speak to her since she used an auto-dialer to call me and I am on the do not call list. She started screaming at the top of her voice that I should have said that the person didn't live there to start with instead of wasting her time.

She continued to scream and scream and scream at me. She was yelling so loudly and so rudely that I could not even make out what she was saying. I eventually hung up on her, because it was apparent that she was not going to let me request to be removed from their records.

I am very upset by this person's behaviour. I should not have to be subjected to harassment like this in my own home, and this company should be investigated.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Info for Tammy...and Marc

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

Tammy,

ALLIED INTERSTATE is NOT a TELEMARKETER, therefore they ARE NOT required to comply with the DO NOT CALL LIST.

ALLIED INTERSTATE are DEBT COLLECTORS and as aggravating as they are, they have done nothing illegal [yet].

To get them to stop calling, YOU MUST send the CEASE COMMUNICATION request as per your rights under the FDCPA. Send it by certified mail, return reciept requested.

Go to FTC.gov to get the FDCPA and go to BudHibbs.com to get a free sample of the CEASE COMMUNICATIONS letter. While on the FTC site file a complaint against them.

Until you notify them in writing to stop calling you, they are doing nothing illegal.

Your choice.

#3 Consumer Comment

There is a good chance they will call back.

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

Get your recorder ready, because you will need documentation if things escalate. Make sure it notes the date and time, and keep those tapes. Even if taping is considered illegal in your area, a judge will still want to hear any evidence you have assuming you make a telephone harassment case with the police. The phone company will give you a million excuses as to why they can't help you, but they are making money off the calls. They won't help you unless made to by the police. Don't worry about wasting the cops' time, they take this stuff seriously these days.

Tammy,

Allied Interstate is a DEBT COLLECTOR.

Therefore, the DO NOT CALL list means nothing.

The DNC list ONLY applies to telemarketers.

Go to FTC.gov and file a complaint online and read/print out the FDCPA. This is what regulates debt collectors, whether you owe money or not.

Bud Says...

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!

WATCH YOUR WALLET, YOUR CHECKBOOK AND YOUR CREDIT CARDS WHEN DEALING WITH THESE SLIPPERY CONS OF THE COLLECTION WORLD, THEY WILL EMPTY YOU OUT!
