Allied Interstate Ripoff On Behalf Of At&t Wireless rudeness Greensboro North Carolina
*Consumer Suggestion: Fair Debt Collection...is it so fair?
First off let me say that the amount owed is valid and needs to be paid. The current amount owed is 430.68.
For the past several months I've been sending them 25.00 a month this is all I can afford to pay and they have accepted these payments and processed them.
So now to the call when I picked up the phone the lady said she was calling from Allied Interstate. She went on to tell me that my bill was 6 months behind being paid. I told her that I was aware of that fact and that I was doing the best I could to pay this bill and then she told me that she needed the amount in full. I told her that was not possible at the present time.
When I asked her what a reasonable amount to send them was she said the balance due. I told her I could not do this. So I told her that next month I could send half of what I owe and the balance the following month. She told me the only way I could do this was to secure the payment with a credit card. I told her that I did not have credit cards.
Now here comes the good part she asked me if there was any way I could borrow the money from someone and I told her I would not do that and then she had the nerve to ask me if my wife works. Then she asked me if I got my tax return back. I told her that was none of her business. Then she went on to ask me why I got behind in my payments to AT&T and I told her that was none of her business also. Now I understand that it is my resposibility to pay this bill and I tried to make arrangements to pay this bill with them but when she became arrogant and rude with me I told her I'm hanging up and she can continue to call as often as she likes but I will not answer the phone.
I know these people have a job to do and I understand I have an obligation to pay this bill. But it seems to me that if I'm making an effort to send them something and they are accepting these payments evey month they should accept the fact that I'm trying to pay this off the best I can. I have dealt with bill collectors before and alot of them have been nice and listen about your situatuion and try to help in any way they can to help clear up a debt. But I would suggest that if you ever recieve a call from Allied Interstate may the force be with you because they sure won't be.
