As a break from my usual profession I became a top-flight collector of outstanding debts for a number of companies which were all within the law as far as they could be.  Of course it only takes one bad employee to ruin a company, but usually that is not a major problem to correct.  Even a hard business to succeed in has more success when they follow the legal path when collecting a legitimate debt.


Ron Allen & Associates was the worst-run, worst-managed company I've ever encountered in collections.  They solicit magazine sales via the phone on one end to start the scam and finish it by collecting so-called unpaid debt that was agreed upon by the customer and one of the many publishing ripoff front companies owned by Ron Allen.


There collection of so-called legal debt is only because of the illegal method of operations, lack of ethics & absence of any oversight can only be proven by an ex-employee.  They start from the sale and mainly collect debts due by people who were victimized by their sales department.  A majority of debt I was asked to collect was not done with knowledgeable consent.  This company's ripoff begins by targeting mostly the elderly, foreign-born who don't yet have a grasp of English, infirm and handicapped and even kids.  The tricks of their threatening behavior are mostly due to an ability to get access to a card number which they claim was authorized verbally in a recorded conversatiion in which they say the evidence is on tape.  No customer contacted hears these tapes ever, just a threat that they will be heard when the debt dispute goes to a judge.


It's the worst kind of ripoff that makes legitimate debt collection look like a racket, however, it's not this kind of ripoff.  As an employee, I have never been treated to the kind of humiliating and public dressing down I received after asking that a radio be turned down so I could collect a large sum that was really owed.  The manager was furious I had the nerve to want his favorite song off so I could meet a goal he had insisited I reach that week or be fired.  I could go on and will if legal action will get my blood pressure to return to its normally safe state that Ron Allen and his minions helped destroy.  These people are the lowest form bloodsucking crooks and should be stopped.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

You are a victim too

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

Bill,

you are a victim just like me!  I should have sued the company for getting rid of me or so they say laid off!  I am so suprised that they are still in business!  When i worked in the in bound call center, it was really hard because i did not get that many nice customers, and when we did here the recording of the customers, some of the  employees would laugh and degrate them, because they could not talk that well!  I heard some of the recordings and I am shocked that they were even put through! I hope you are not working there anymore but if you are, it just means that you have to be there because of the economy!  Take Care
