Additional Information to add

Unfortunate consumers should seriously consider contacting not only the FBI, but the Federal Trade Commission. I was an employee of Imperial Collection Services dba Glen Daniels Corporation.

Adam Castellanos is not the true problem. He stays either too high on drugs or drunk to be harmful. The force behind the problems are Catalina Hsu and Craig DePretto. Ms. Hsu aka "dragon-lady" is the current Chief Financial Officer, whose has a very questionable background. She along with Mr.DePretto, the Chief Operating Officer are the true culprits.

Collectors are constantly intimidated, inticed with gifts of illegal drugs, alcolhol and prostitutes by these two very evil,vile individuals. I have personally witnessed Ms.Hsu forcing an obviously intimidated collector to return his paycheck, because she was taking back his earned commission. His only crime was refusing to force a collector to instruct a debtor to "sell her body" or "give blood" to pay the debt owed.

The Money Store has been trying to break ties with Imperial Collection Services for the last year. The Money Store had agreed to automatically debit Imperial Collection Services' client trust bank account for monies collected. The Money Store wants all of the money due, before it completely breaks ties with Imperial. Ms. Hsu has frustrated The Money Store's efforts, by deliberately making sure that no deposits are made into The Money Store's trust bank account. The deposits are instead made into an asian owned bank (The Bank of the Orient, located in San Francisco) and have given banking personnel instructions not to allow anyone other than herself access to the account.

Mr. Glen Daniels, is a very decent man, who is completely unware of what Ms. Hsu and Mr. DePretto horrific actions.

By the way, I was released from my position of controller when I got fed up with the immoral, illegal actions committed by the company. I had been employed there for three years and never received any reprimands.

To reinterate, I strongely advise anyone who is dealing with Imperial Collection Services dba Glen Daniels Corporation to contact both the FBI and Federal Trade Commissions.

Tariq - San Rafael, California

Thanks to God for this employee a Money Controller at Imperial Collections finally comming forward. Please everyone call the FBI today. Do not wait ! Lets get a Class Action suit filed against the Money Store / Homeq / Imperial Collection Services / thier employees and the Snake Attorneys that HELP these people do thier evil biddings.

#1 General Comment


AUTHOR: caregiver - (United States of America)

      I am a mentaly and phyically handy capped person. About ayear ago I receved what I believed to be a personal loan from a friend, they excepted the electronic transfer, so I with drew the money and two days later they contacted me and said I had faurded the bank. To cut it short they sold my debt to Imperial Collection Services about 8 months ago and since then they have called and harrassed me two to three times a day. They have even thearten me with law suit by lawyers that don't even work for them. The Federial Trade Commission is very interested in anything about this company, they have been black flagged. Call them and hear what they say you can do. I allowed them to "black box" my phone to get all the thearts.

LUIS MICHEEL AND THE COMPANY ..I am prior active military/reservist


I would like to start off by saying that I am prior active military/reservist.

My family recieved some distrubing phone calls this last weekend of a man that was demanding my information, such as a phone number and address becuase he claimed that he owed me a check for $935.00.

My family are the ones that took that call, as for me, I reside in California. My parents recieved that call in Wisconsin. There were 3 consecutive phone calls made with in 15-20 mins of this man demanding my information. My family knew not to give any information becuase I am prior military.

After my family mentioned that I was Miltary, this man claimed that he is Chief Warrent Officer Luis Micheel of the United State Military. First off, inpersonating a officer is a very serious offence, secondly, this man could have avoided this problem that my family and my self are now facing today. He could have simply left the company phone number and requested that I return the call. It is that simple!

But noooo...this same man, now known as Luis Micheel (his identity has been verified and he employment with thie company too) continued to call my friend and do the same thing.

I work for a very proffesional company, and I know what being proffessional is all about. This man could have handled things a lot more proffesional.

But, seen as how I am still in the military, and I still have orders to follow, I have to report him to JAG for impersonating a Officer of the United States Military.

There is a police report that is going to be filed by my family about this man and this company that he currently works for known as Imperial Collections.

If anyone can help me it would be great. This man has made my families and my life a living hell for the past week.

Thank you

No report numbers = no report

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

If you are right, why do you have to lie to prove your point?

Give us the name of anyone at the FBI who you talked with, or any police department. It would be simple to check with that person to find out what really happened. But then, nothing really happened, did it?

If you were telling the truth, you would eagerly provide this info, the proof that your charge was serious and honest. You would broadcast it to the world, and you wouldn't just hide behind name-calling.

Tell you what, if you are afraid to give this info, email wetip@metro-traffic.us, put SLC LT DRAKE in the subject line, and tell me who you talked to that way.

If I get that info, I will check and then -- if the people you name tell me that there really are reports, whether open cases or info-only, and when they were contacted -- I will put this info here.

Who knows, if you really do have something, you will have the chance to change my mind. I'm not married to Lina, if you have PROOF then I can change my mind.

OTOH, if (when) there is nothing to report by Labor Day of 2004, then we will know that you are just another deadbeat with a grudge and an apple box.

Your call.

ICS Imperial Collections rip offs from hell LINA h*o ?

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

In response to the JOHN Of LINA h*o ! The police have been notificed as well as FBI.

No numbers or proof is needed to be sent to a JOHN Of Lina, just believe that the bordello has been reported and is being looked into and justly so.

Perhaps the FBI will get this group infiltrated soon to save further victims of the illegal, unethical operations this group uses.

#5 Consumer Comment

Yeah, right

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

No, I'm not Lina. As I said before, the editors are welcome to contact me and get proof of that fact.

Also, as I said before, if these things did happen, why has NOBODY reported them to the local police?


Report to the police, then post the report number and name of the officer or detective who took the report here for all to see.

If this doesn't happen within one month, then we will KNOW that it's just fable.

#6 UPDATE Employee

ICS Imperial Collection aka Glenn Daniels Corp is Crooked

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

I have read all this input and I am a victim of this company and have personal knowledge of what horrible, unethical, and illegal things they say and do to persons they collect on and the illegal techniques this company uses to collect.

I have NO DOUBT that the person J or Tabiz working inside the company that wrote about the illegal drug use, prostitution is absolutely correct.

The problem is that loop holes in the laws and the fact that law enforcement does not care about filing against collection companies. Collection laws are ineffective. This is why companies like this survive and get away with all they do.

We were even told to go get a loan from a loan shark to pay our dept and many other illegal things from this bunch. At one point this company even sent persons acting like FBI agents to harrass our attorney, unfortunately our attorney secretary neglected to get the license plate to have them arrested.

The rebuttal in favor and defense of the female dragon owner Lina is not a concerned friend....

But was no doubt written by Lina herself to defend her horrific actions so she can continue her evils on poor people that are behind on debts, so she can take their homes and possessions. She manages Imperial Collection Services / Glenn Daniels Corporation like a w***e house and she is the Madame. No wonder she is pushing drugs and prostitutes on her employees.

Common Since checker 101, detected a 100% match with Lina, Hsu or what ever she calls herself.

Madame would be more appropriate for the bordello she runs at ICS.

Have faith that the next illegal act will be caught by officials. We have made tons of complaints and eventually one will stick. Who knows perhaps there is a Federal investigaton going on right now ? One would think so, by now our last complaint to FBI they kept all the information to cross match nationally.

And if the famous document checker thinks I am "J" then checker is also a fraud and rip off like ICS, Imperial Collection Services and Glenn Daniels Corp. A ripped off consumer !

Oh, Really?

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

Literary Checker says 84% probability that the writer "J" is the same person who wrote the other two comments, plus accused the US Army of beheading Nick Berg in another forum.

Sentence structure tells, and the misspellings are flagged as probably intentional due to their location and type.

However, let's assume for the sake of argument that the writer is actually not Hamid Niazi (after all, there is a 1 in 7 chance that he or she is not). We then have to believe that this person has spent 8 years voluntarily engaging in various felonies, but would then go into a website and admit an ongoing pattern of criminal activity, just to prove a point about an employer.

Yeah, right.

BTW, I am not defending ANY collection agency, my only stake in this is that I know Catalina Hsu, and she wouldn't do the things which Hamid claims. But then, he also claims that the US Army beheaded Nick Berg to make Al-Quaeda look bad.

Ripoffreport.com administrators have my email address and phone number, and are invite to contact me to prove that I am "for real." I'll bet that they won't be able to verify the same about "Tariq," "Concerned Citizen" or "J."

False allegations against Lina Hsu

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

I have just found this report. I am a friend of Catalina Hsu, and I can't let this lie about her go unchallenged.

The fact is that "Tariq" -- Hamid Niazi -- was fired for gross incompetence which cost the company something on the order of $185,000, and for other irregularities.

He no doubt used a fake name in this report to avoid the lawsuit which would result from these contemptible accusations, if he had been brave enough to sign his own name to it.

At the time when he posted this report, he was trying to find another job. This report was no doubt intended to give him credibility to potential employers, while still trying to suck up to the former boss, who he wants to use as a reference.

I have known Catalina since last year, and if there is anyone who could not be called a "dragon lady" it is she. She has moved on to another position, and when she was put in the position of having to terminate an employee, she put it off as long as possible in hopes that the worker would straighten up and fly right. However, she DID fire one collection agent who told a debtor to sell her body or her blood (sound familiar?). As Hamid's direct superior, it was her responsibility to fire him, but she passed that on to DePretto (the other target of Hamid's rage) and Daniels. THIS is a "dragon lady"?

The idea that Catalina would be involved in any way with illegal drugs or supplying prostitutes is nothing short of ludicrous. She is active in a Christian church, and both the doctrines of the church and her own observable morals set her so far from any such activities that even the accusation is laughable.

If they were true, why did Hamid continue to work for the company -- reporting to Catalina -- until he was fired? And why did he not go to the police with these allegations of felonious behavior?

Hamid calls on people to go to the FBI, yet he himself has not done so. Why not? The simple answer is that he is LYING and knows that filing a false report with the Bureau would result in Federal charges against him.

Note that he can't even keep his story straight. When someone is released from a position, it is not because they wanted to go.

I also wonder how competent Hamid is, if he could even suggest that a corporate bank account would only be accessible to one employee . . ? Or does he just figure that anyone stupid enough to buy the rest of his diatribe would not know how absurd the idea is.

Unfortunately, if someone does a Google search on Lina's name, THIS stink-bomb will show up, and will hurt her reputation for years to come. I am sure that Hamid is proud of himself, and if you see some of the other garbage that he has written in other places (do a Google search on his name), you will see that he is long on rant and short on fact.

By the way, the sentence structure and spelling errors in the "Concerned citizen" response is a 97% match with Hamid's essay and his other (signed) work, according to Literary Checker. This may be sufficient to bring that lawsuit, and let the court sort it out. I wonder who will be found more credible, Catalina or a semi-rational Persian?

Please note that the false name that Hamid hides behind is that of Saddam Hussein's deputy. Is this related to his allegation that Nick Berg was actually beheaded by the US Army?

What you have here is nothing more than a lashing out at the company which canned him, like a 5-year-old screaming insults at the kids who won't play with him.
