AFNI Afni Files Bogus Credit Bureau Reports SUE Afni! Bloomington Illinois
Afni, Inc. is a disgusting group of liars who cheat people out of their money. They file phony credit bureau reports on very old time barred debts. I sent them a dispute, their response is for the consumer to send them all types of personal information. They want this so they can use it against you. They do not have the documents to legally validate their claims, they want you to send them documents NEVER send them any documents. If enough people sue Afni, they will get the message, here are the owners at Afni you should sue: Bruce F. Griffin, IFCCE, Chairman-CEO Ronald L Greene, President-COO John Mobley, Jr., Vice President Gregory J. Donovan, Secretary V. Curtis Oyer, Treasurer They live in and around the Bloomington, IL area, many are members of the Bloomington Country Club. File suits against them, they will lie and say they made a mistake, then pay up. Make them remove their fraudulent claims from the credit bureaus. They do not have documents that will meet any legal status for validation, they lie on almost all accounts they collect. Hold them responsible for their actions, make them pay!

AFNI - afnicollections.com - Afni Inc. Was being charged for an account I never had Bloomington, Illinois
I recieved a collections leter from AFNI stating that I owed Verizon Select Services a total of $564.69, but they would settle for $50.00.    I called the number provided on the letter and sat on hold for 15 minutes.  I got to my computer and did a search fro teh company and found an additional number to contact them by (877.403.0670).  A woman answered, not identifyine herself with the company, and she brought my account up.  She had my name, previous address and the year I first moved into the residence. I explained toher that the only home phone service I had at that time was a Pay As You Go plan and that I have NEVER had a verizon plan, either home phone or cell phone.  The ladie stated that she would stop the mailings, that they probably had the wrong person.

AFNI AFNI Fraudulent Billing Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
I too have got the notice from AFNI $900 some odd dollar bill. Found out it is from 1994 for a (727) area code phone number in St. Petersburg FL. Of coarse I didn't live in St. Petersburg in 1994. I was not married at the time so the notice should be in my maiden name not my married name. But guess what else my research reveals for those of you being scammed too. Verizon Communications did not exist until the Bell Atlantic and GTE merger in 2000, so why would this debt not show in the old phone company name. Also the 727 area code did not exist until July, 1 1998. So they are trying to say I owe a debt on a number that couldn't have existed in 1994 under a name I did not have then for a company that did not exist then. FRAUD, FRAUD and more FRAUD. Plus the statue of limitations have passed in FL and the current state I reside in and to report to the credit burea they must use the original deliquency date of 1994 and the credit bureau can only negative debt for seven years this is according to The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)Section 623(a)(5). We need to stop these criminals. Jennifer Lex, South CarolinaU.S.A.

Afni Fraud collection notice from Afni ripoff Bloomington Illinois
I recently received a collection report in the mail from Afni, Inc. saying I owed money for a Verizon telephone service. I found that odd seeing Verizon land line is not available in my area. So I called the number on the notice. The gentleman that I spoke with said that I owed this from 1995. I would have been in my senior year of highschool then and did not have a phone in my name at that time. He did have the town correct that I lived in at that time, but I told him I did not have a phone. He kept insisting that I did have the phone and was asking me if I knew the people he was giving me names of. He was telling me that these people were tied to me some how. I did not know the name of the people. He actually told me the town justice was tied to me and the phone too. How could I have anything to do with a town of justice phone? I asked if this is my bill, then why in 12 years have I never received a bill for this. He said that this company is the only company that has equipment good enough to find people no matter what. He proceeds to tell me that I should get my credit report. I told him I get my report quarterly and that has never been on there. He said I had to go to their web site and file a fraudulent report then and if I did not do it in 7 days they are going to send me out information to file one through the mail. Then he hung up on me. Why would he hang up on me if he is trying to collect money for a so called bill? Kristine Warsaw, New YorkU.S.A.

Afni Inc Ripoff by AFNI & Verizon Bloomington Illinois
Fraud attempt: 9/20/2007 I have received aCollection Notice through the mail from Afni Inc. They claim that they have purchased a debt from Verizon for an unpaid telephone bill. My Verizon account is verifiable as zero balance online Info included to the FBI & Postmaster. I have proof of all bills paid before due for the last several years. You can see a bulletin board with numerous complaints about this company at CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report. that site has 46 detailed complaints against Afni. Better Business Bureau at: http://www.peoria.bbb.org/commonreport.html?bid=9000349 processed 792 complaints against Afni in the last 3 years. They call Afni a company in good standing - presumably because they pay membership dues. Afni has a web page at https://www.afnicollections.com/Default.aspx Which cannot access my account and their phone number 866 308 1160 has a recording saying they cannot answer my call due to the volume of calls. They required my social security number (illegal,) and I entered random numbers, which (just maybe) could be why they could not access my account. Others, however could not get any joy with that web page read the complaints. Curiously, Verizon does seem to sell debts to Afni, so maybe Afni is legitimate and Verizon has found a new source of revenue. Dont know. All I know is that the claim is fraudulent. I am a senior citizen and getting real tired of people trying to rip me off. Verizon did rip me off once before, when they claimed I made an overseas call and quoted the number used as my internet provider's number - about 6 blocks away. They gave me such a corporate run around I paid the charge to save my credit. Dumb me - now I'm on a suckers list. I would really, really appreciate a reply.

AFNI, Verizon AFNI Employee is blowing smoke Bloomington Illinois
VERIZON customer service is well known and is currently under review by the MDPSC (Maryland Public Service Commission) for forgoing their responsibilities as a member of the business community. I only assume that it will be AFNI sitting in the US Congress explaining their pratices in the near future. I discontinued service paid balance in full and moved. Mail was forwarded to new address for 90 days by the USPS. Never recieved any bill from VERIZON. AFNI claims to have mailed notices but the address they used was incorrect and denied me any right to dispute the claim I owed VERIZON money. Unfortunatly (Like most) I shred all records after 4 years. This bill is from 5 years ago and if AFNI had contacted me when they claim they had tried to I would have had the proof that I had paid the balance in full. Now AFNI after making a data-entry mistake per my current address, and after I contacted them in response to their mark on my credit report to investigate what it was about is unwilling to correct their mistakes. The mark falls off in 1 year 3 months, it's not really effecting my credit score because I had all 3 CRA's correct the attempt by AFNI to re-new the debt. If they try and sue I'll show up to court and claim SOL, and counter sue for FTC violations of attempting to renew a debt. And to think all this could have been fixed by VERIZON customer service entering my payment when I made it. Heck I even offered to pay it again if they just removed it from my credit report since they had been contacting the wrong address, but they claimed it to be illegal (imagine AFNI wanting to play by the rules). So they are out the money, I'll go on with a small 5 point hit on my FICO for 1 year and I'll be happy. George Catonsville, MarylandU.S.A.

Afni, Inc Afni Inc Bloomington Illinois
My battle with AFNI collection is a very stressful one, and it began when i pulled up my credit report about a year ago and there was only 1 negative thing on it, and it was an outstanding bill from MCI that was send off to collection agency for an amazing 416.70 I have since then contacted the collection agency who has my DOB,& SSN, they stated that they got that info from MCI but MCI does not have any of that information, further more these services where provided to some one that lives in a total different area but it just so happen that whom ever had the service i was mixed up with had a similar name. So i filled a dispute, but that dispute is basically a dead end because since they have my social and DOB they basically said its me, and i must pay up even if MCI has never had any of my personal information, and i never lived at the address or had that phone number, they still want me to pay all this money for something i never had? I dont think so. AFNI needs to be reported for Fraud, and punished for what they are doing to so many people, I'm sure there are some that really do owe money, but for does that are Innocent of this debt, Federal Trade Commission needs to investigate properly.

Afni Whistleblower How to Beat Afni Bloomington Illinois
I am a team manager @ Afni. I oversee several collectors and program coaches. I have inside information about Afni that I am willing to discuss with anyone who is interested. Why? A smug subordinate went to my supervisors office and fed him lies about my management style. When I returned to work, I had to deal with the s**tstorm that happened while I was out of the office. I have incompetent people working for me and my bosses are morons...and my efforts to help make Afni a great place to work have gone unappreciated.....So...I've decided to go public. I can answer any questions about Afni collections that you have. Don't just mail in a payment as soon as you get your First Notice letter. That's how the company makes so much money. Last month, our debt purchase division alone, made 6 million dollars...most of it from consumers that are unaware of their rights and the law, mailing in a payment b/c they were afraid of what might happen if they didn't. This is just the first of several installments on how to beat Afni. There will be more to come... Anonymous bloomington, IllinoisU.S.A.

I received a 'settlement offer' from AFNI collections stating that i owe AT&T $59.89 and that I need to pay either by credit card slip or go to their website to payoff this debt. I DO NOT OWE THIS MONEY. I haven't even had a past due balance from AT&T EVER. Awful that they can get away with this.

AFNI Verizon Wireless. Get AFNI to stop... Bloomington Illinois
I was so livid. I wrote this letter to the president (and mailed it to his house) of the company that reported me to AFNI (Verizon of Florida - not all of Verizon). I am thinking about getting people to write their stories regarding Verizon & AFNI to the Securities and Exchange Commission and Verizons accountants. Please let me know by replying to this if I should write a letter and post it here. Maybe if we put enough heat on Verizon they will drop AFNI. Every time a letter goes to the SEC/CPA it would cost at least $1000 in accounting fees to document it. HAHA. August 31, 2007 Alan F. Ciamporcero 4920 Lyford Cay Rd. Tampa, FL 33629 Dear Mr. Ciamporcero: About a month ago I got a collection notice and Verizon of Florida (VoF) was the original debtor. I was surprised because my personal cell phone is Verizon, but I was pretty sure it was not the same business unit and I know I pay my bill so I couldn't imagine how I racked up an over $300 bill. I called the collection agency, AFNI, and they told me how to go online and report fraud, which I immediately did. I was also surprised that the debt goes back to 2001 and that I was just now getting a bill why did VoF wait six years to factor this account? Or if it had factored it after say 180 days why did it take so long for me to get notified because this IS NOT on my credit report. It was an 813 area code and I figured it would be easy enough to prove it was fraud considering I never lived in Tampa and I was in full-time attendance at the University of Central Florida in Orlando at the time. In addition, they had my social and could have pulled my credit report and found my current address. Why would I have a Verizon cell phone that I pay and ditch a landline bill? Today I get another letter from AFNI. I just called and spoke with someone named Justin. I asked him, Doesnt it look suspicious that the billing address is a PO Box? He said I needed to pay it or else it was going to go on my credit. Is he retarded? Why is he threatening me and why would VoF use a company that threatens people? He said the Support department had investigated it and since VoF had my date of birth and social, it is a valid debt. I asked if I could talk to the support department and he said they only take faxes because they are so busy. Thats almost as retarded as him threatening me with a debt collection on my credit. I am appalled that someone was allowed to get telephone service in my name, considering I was in college at the time. Please take note: FRAUD HAS OCCURRED SOMEWHERE IN YOUR ORGANIZATION. Please fix this. Please call me. I will provide my transcripts if that is what you need. I will pull my drivers report and credit report to show I never lived in the Tampa Bay area. If I have to pay this to prevent this from going on my credit I will not be pleased. As a registered agent of VoF I will put your name on the small claims court summons it will probably cost more to have counsel go to court then it would to call AFNI. In addition, I will write the audit committee and lodge a formal complaint about the controls in place in your organization, specifically the code of ethics and managements unwillingness to investigate fraud when it is reported. I will also write the SEC and your independent accounting firm to report this matter. Also, I am appalled at Justins threat about paying this. I hope you have someone in your organization contact AFNI and let them know about the threats of their employees. I cant imagine that the threat would be something permitted by Verizon Communications Code of Conduct. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

AFNI scam collection agency ripoff Bloomington Illinois
I subscribe to a credit watch program, I was notified about a recent negative collection account. The collection agency that is trying to collect is Afni, Inc. It was a Charter Communications I had several years ago. I actually still have the receipt dated 08-31-2004. I faxed these clowns a copy of it and they claim they have 30 days to investigate and then delete there entry. I never received any mail from Afni, just the credit alert. My question is why are they reporting something I paid nearly 3 years ago. No phone call, no mail just a cheap attempt to destroy people's credit. I will give them exactly 30 days or I will take them to small claims court. It feels good to have the upper hand Randy Newport, TennesseeU.S.A.

AFNI Bogus collection attempts Bloomington Illinois
I have just received a second collection notice from AFNI, Inc. This second one is a Settlement Offer; giving me the option of paying half the original bogus overdue account. This so-called creditor is Verizon California, Inc. Like everyone else who has posted here, this bill is 100% fake. The website afnicollections.com is also all wrong. One of things that's a dead giveaway about that is the VeriSign logo on the site. If you hover over the logo and watch the bottom of your screen, nothing happens. If the logo was legitimate, it would show a web address in the bottom of the screen for VeriSign. This is all outrageous! You cannot complain to the Attorney General of your state, either. This is mail fraud, and as such, is reportable to the United States Postal Service. DO NOT contact AFNI, Inc. To do so somehow gives their claim against you some kind of legitimacy. Instead, go to the following address: usps.com/postalinspectors/fraud/MailFraudComplaint.htm Copy and paste into your browser address bar. You can file a complaint this way. Be sure to ask for confirmation that your complaint has been received. It will take several weeks, but you will receive notification by mail. If enough complaints are registered, the USPS is far more likely to investigate these rip-off artists! Do it now! Robert Oklahoma City, OklahomaU.S.A.

Afni Totally False information Bloomington Illinois
Yesterday, we too recieved a bill for collection for a cingular phone that I supposedly owe $1,173.40 on. The funny thing is that when I did have a Cingular phone it was included in my Bellsouth complete plan and although I canncelled cell phone service, I still keep my other services. And of course Cingular does not exist as a company anylonger. Cingular, Bellsouth and AT&T are now merged into one company. Since I am still doing business with this company, I called them and spent 2 hours on the phone with them. They looked everywhere, in all the old Cingular records that they have and they have NO record of me owing them any money. They did not send this to collection angency. Total Fraud on Afni part already. My son called the Afni number for me while I was at work and they insist that this was I phone I closed in 2005. Cingular's records show I closed the account in 2002 and it was paid in full. They also said that I opened the account when I lived in Margate, Fl. When my son told them we had never lived in Margate, they yelled at him and said my address there was a matter of public record. So I looked in public records myself. There is no record of anyone with my last name ever living in Margate. Caught in lie number two. I am guessing that they prey on people thinking that they are a victim of identiy theft who then pay the bills to save their credit. But I have had a credit monitoring service for many years and I am notified if anyone even looks into my credit, let alone an acount is opened in my name, so I know this is not identiy theft. To top this all they offered my son a deal. We could pay 4 monthly payments of $800.00. OK now do the math. That's $3,200.00 in 4 months, an increase of over $1,400.00 and about 80% interest. Loan sharks to boot. This afternoon I sent a certified and registered return reciept letter to them stating my rights under the fair credit act and to cease all collections until they provide proper documentaiton. I also sent the following letter to both the General Attorney of the United states and the Florida Attorney General's office. Everyone needs to start writing to the Attorny generl of both the U.S. and thier state and put a stop to this. I am also making an appointment with an attorney to make sure I am protected. Economic Crimes Division Office of the Attorney General 110 SE 6th Street, 9th Floor Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301-5000 Re:Afni Account #xxxxxxxxx-xx Afni, Inc. PO Box 3427 Bloomington, IL 61702-3427 (888) 265-6111 January 29th, 2008 To Whom It May Concern I received a letter on January 28, 2008 stating that Afni has acquired a delinquent account in my name for collection, in the amount of $1773.40. The original creditor is listed as Cingular. Upon receipt of this letter I immediately became suspicious of fraud. Not only does Cingular no longer exist as a company, but during the time that I had Cingular service it was a part of my complete phone service with Bellsouth and AT&T. Although in 2002 I discontinued cell phone service, I continued all of my other services with Bellsouth and AT&T and continue to receive and pay my monthly bills as part of my complete plan. Cingular, Bellsouth and AT&T are currently one merged company, therefore when I received this bill; I immediately contacted Cingular/ Bellsouth/AT&T to look into this matter. As per Cingular/ Bellsouth/ AT&T, the only Cingular service that they have any record of is Cingular cell phone which was opened in 1999; discontinued in 2002 and paid in full. They have no record of me owing them any money for any bills or other phone service. All of my accounts are paid up to current day. When I proceeded to investigate Afni I found on the internet over 146 complaints that were very similar to mine. Afni is claiming to collect on discontinued and paid cell phone numbers from 6 to 10 years old, threatening and filing reports with the 3 credit agencies when the victims do not pay them for these falsified bills. When we contacted Afni they said the phone was disconnected in 2005 at the address of 2856 NW 49th in Margate, Florida. When they were told that we never lived at said address or in Margate for that matter, they said that my address there was on public record. They also offered to allow us to make 4 monthly payments of $800.00 to settle the bill. I am a school teacher and I know that $800.00 times 4 = $3,200.00. That is an increase of $1,426.60 more than the original bill in just four months. 80 percent interest in just 4 months. After speaking with Afni, I looked on the public records myself and there is no listing for anyone by my last name living at this address or in Margate at any time. I have also subscribed to a credit monitoring service for many years and I am always notified if there is any activity in my name. This phone account has never surfaced in any of my bulletins. Furthermore Cingular/Bellsouth/AT&T has stated that they have no knowledge of this supposed bill and that I do not owe them any money. All of the information given to me by Afni has proven to be false. Attached please find a copy of the letter which I sent to Afni Inc. in response to their request for collection of said monies. Afni is using the fear of identity theft as a ruse to extort money from innocent citizens. This is not a case of Identity theft. This is a case of a collection agency front used for the sole intent of scamming people into thinking they owe monies on nonexistent bill and threatening them with their credit if they do not pay. As Attorney General it is your job to protect us from these types of activities. This type of deception and preying on the public must be stopped; I respectfully request that you look into the practices of Afni Inc., investigate these counterfeit collections, and prosecute this company for criminal fraud. Thank you for your assistance And I await your prompt reply, Constance Pembroke Pines, FloridaU.S.A.

AFNI, INC fraudulent billing Nationwide
I recently checked my credit report due to being refused/ turned down on an auto loan and found AFNI, INC. listed as a collection department seeking funds on a seriously past due dept. When I tried to call the phone number listed on their web site to inquire about the dept during the operating hours listed on the same web site, I got a Please Hold recording that ran for over an hour playing music and every so often a recording saying your call is very important to us, please stand by but all the while, no person picked up on the line. I just wanted to know how I aquired the dept and why I was never notified about it prior to my checking my credit report this time. I had check my credit report 6 months before when I re-fied my home and it was not their, but now it's here to my suprise. After doing a little research on the company, I found that the company is not all that it claims to be. I have filed a dispute with the credit bureau over the account and I hope that will bring this all to a head, though what I have found out about this company troubles me.

AFNI Fraudulent debt collection attempt Bloomington Illinois
I received a letter from this bunch dated 3/21/07 attempting to collect on a debt in the amount of $447.75 on a GTE/Verizon account. They offered a settlement of $223.88 (half the debt) payable by the usual methods. The problem is that this debt is over 15 years old, from Arkansas, where I have not lived for 14 years. The creditor account number appears to be the old phone number, appended with the date of the last bill sent. John Madera, CaliforniaU.S.A.

AFNI Notice For Questionable Debt Bloomington Illinois
I opened this notice today but it was sent March 15, 2007. I thought it was another credit card offer so i put it aside but something told me to open it up today insted of just throwin it away. To my surprise, it was a collection notice for a Verizon Maryland Inc. debt for $542.47 in reference to a disconnected phone number 301-887-1414 I have never in my life had an account with Verizon until October 2006. I just got my new apt and opened a DSL/phone service account with Verizon. I pay my bill every month on time and would have been notified by Verizon if i was this deliquent. Furthermore, this 301 number was never my number. I called this same number and it's not disconnected. It rings and an answering machine picks up. This notice went to my old address in DC which i lived at before i moved in October 2006 to MD. The home in DC was my grandfather's home and he had the phone registered through Verizon in his own name for the past 15+ years. I only have Verizon DSL at my grandfathers home. I noticed some unusual things on this collection notice. While i rarely receive collection notices, i do know enough of what they are supposed to contain. First of all, there is no company name for this collection agency. All it says is www.afnicollections.com and below that COLLECTION NOTICE in bold caps. There is no open/close date for this account. Usually collection agencies soliciting to collect a debt will offer payment plans. This notice didnt. Usually collection agencies that are collecting debts on the behalf of a creditor lists the creditors address and contact. this notice didnt. As i have been reading from other posters, we all seem to have the same Verizon in common. Why is this? And why does everyone have different phone numbers for this company if we all are calling the collections department? Now i know im not the brightest in the world but the phone number for specific departments such as billing and in our case collections are universal no matter what state you are in. I don't have the money to solicit an attorney but if it comes down to it, that will be my first and foremost priority. For now, i am drafting a not so kind inquiry letter to this afnicollections.com and i am calling Verizon at 8am. As a matter of fact, i have verizon on speed dial so as soon as i wake up, before i even brush my teeth, i will be the first one in line to speak with a supervisor, not a customer service rep. This entire notice sounds and smells foul to me and i am getting to the bottom of it. Lindsey hyattsville, MarylandU.S.A.

AFNI - Verizon Ripoff, dishonest, fraudulent Bloomington Illinois
I received a collections letter frm AFNI Inc., regarding a Verizon account which does not belong to me. After checking with Verizon back in September of 2005 (this is the third time a collection agency has tried to collect this debt on behalf of Verizon), I was told that somehow my name had become to another person's social security number in Verizon's system. Each of the two previous times, I contacted Verizon, and after hours of being bounced around to different departments, was given confirmation numbers that the problem was taken care of. I have sent a certified letter to AFNI disputing the debt. Sarah Erie, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.
