AFNI Sent Fraudulent Settlement Offer. Sound familiar? Bloomington Illinois
Today I received an attempt by AFNI to collect $355.67 on a Cingular account. They said if I sent half of this I would no longer have to worry about this obligation . We called the toll-free number and were told this was the fifteenth letter they had sent! The account supposedly is from 2000. They could give no telephone number, or provide any information whatsoever. We filed a dispute and told them we expect to hear from them before the 31st, and that we are also filing a fraud report. Michael Moore should focus on this issue..... Kathy Louisville, KentuckyU.S.A.

Afni Collections Bogus Verizon Account Collections Bloomington Illinois
Afni Collections is trying to collect a bogus verizon account passed due amount from me. I sent them proof it is not my account they refused to accept it and return mailed it. I sent it registerd mail it was unopend and just refused. They told me to send it to them. Also if this account is a true passed due account owed by someone and that someone lives in the same state as I do. The statute of limitations has expiered to collect on this debit any way it is a 9 year old debit will be 10 years old in about 3 months. The ststute is 3 years in my state. Not only that but the people that work the phones are rude I have spent hours on hold when quoted 9 minute wait times before some one picked up a phone. I also tryed to give them the proof over the phone and was once again told to mail it *LOL* One good thing though when I pressed one for english I did get english. Cobalt Ft Worth, TexasU.S.A.

Afni, Want settlement for a disconnect fee on Verizon Bloomington Illinois
I received a collection letter from Afni, Inc, stating it was a settlement offer on a Verizon North disconnection notice. Of course they offered to settle for half the account balance. The phone was a teen phone installed in the 1980's. The phone was shut off in the mid 1990's. We had received nothing about this until yesterday. I called Verizon, which was a waste of time. I called Afni and the man refused to talk to me since my kids names were on the account. Needless to say I said more than I should have and hung up. At no time in the 10 or more years did Verizon send us a statement or call us on this. Upset Harrisburg, IllinoisU.S.A.

Afni, Inc. Claiming I owe Charter Communications $79.32 Ferndale Michigan
This is certainly not a bill I owe since I have never had any service of any type from Charter Communications, which I believe is a cable provider in my area. I haven't had any cable service at any reaidence I have lived at for more than 15 years, so I am certain it is not my bill. Bryan Smyrna, GeorgiaU.S.A.

AFNI Fraudlent All Tell Account Bloomington Illinois
In August 2007 I received a statement in my maiden name (which I haven't used in 10 years) from AFNI alleging I owed $163.66. I wrote a letter asking for copies of applications, signature and picture ID's used to verify the account. I have never even had an All Tell account! 6 weeks later I receive a computer general letter with the original creditors name, address, account and balance (80.00 higher than previous), but nothing that I requested. So, I sent a certified letter requesting this information and reminded them that if this were a judicial matter, they would have to come up with the info. I also sent a copy of the Fair Debt Collection Practices codes and a letter from an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission (which I found online) as a back up. In February, I received yet another statement of the alleged balance and this time they were offering to accept half of the balance to settle the account. I have never contacted them verbally as I choose not to be harrassed, as I also know this will sometimes reopen the statutes. As of today, I am filing a complaint with all of the statement, letters to the Attorney Generals office in the State of Florida and Illinois. Lynn Winter Haven, FloridaU.S.A.

Afni mistakes i've made resolving a dispute Bloomington Indiana
While trying to buy a home recently, i came across an afni collection for over 1300 dollars from cingular. this is, in no uncertain terms, not my debt. i have been a gingular (now at&t) customer for almost 10 years now, and have only ever had 1 account with them - the one i use now. i called the call center to get information, which was an absolute waste of time, other than to start my 30 day clock running. during the course of my conversation i made sevral mistakes and would love some advice on how to make sure these things do not haunt me too much. i verified the last 4 numbers of my social - hesitantly, but i did it. i updated my current address. i updated my daytime phone. while i completely agree that these were huge mistakes, what can i do to prevent them from becoming my downfall?

AFNI, Inc. Fraudulent Bill Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
AFNI, Inc. recently sent me a Notice of Collection for a Verizon account I have never had. I called to let them know that they have the wrong person, but the representative Diane kept telling me to stop interrupting her when she was telling me that my account was past due and that I owed Verizon $80.01. I told her that I am interrupting her because she is making incorrect statements when she states that my account is past due. She asked me for my current mailing address. I told her that I would now disclose that to her. She stated that she would put down that I refused to answer. I said fine. Then she asked me for my phone number. I told her that I would not provide her that information. She said that she would enter that I refused to answer. I told her fine. She asked me who my current employer was. I told her that I would not provide her that information. She stated that she would enter that I refused to answer. I said fine. Then she asked if I wanted to resolve this account. I told her that I wanted her to get her information straight and that this is not my account. She asked if I was refusing to pay my past due account. I told her that I am refusing to pay an account that does not belong to me. She said that she would make sure that my refusal to pay goes on my permanent record. I said, you mean my permament record from high school? She told me to stop being flippant towards her. Then she tried to hang up on me. I said, wait, wait, can you tell me when this bill orginated? She put me on hold and came back on the line a couple of minutes later. She said that the bill was from April 1998. I said from nine years ago, are you crazy? She tried to hang up on me again. I said to her wait, wait, but sorry I didn't get your name, was it Daphne? She said, I have told you several times that my name is Diane. Do I need to spell it for you? I said, I think that you had better. So she spelled it D-I-A-N-E. Then I said, and how do you spell you last name? She replied, I not giving you that information! and hung up on me. My next step is to write Certified/Return Receipt letter to them demanding validation, which I know that they cannot provide. I have written an email to my Congressional Representative and State Attorney General about these criminals. I will bring down the full weight of the government on these idiots.

Afni, Inc. Fraudulent collection claim Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
I received a notice from Afni, Inc saying that they were a collections company and that I had been referred to them for a past due bill of $147.57 . The bill was for a phone number that I had never had before. The account that was past due was from a company called Verizon New York Inc.-not Verizon. I called the number listed on the notice and after being placed on hold an obnoxious rep came on the phone. He verified the last four of my SSN and the address of my parents. The bill was from 1994-when I was in college in Binghamton New York but the bill was for my parents address on Long Island. To confuse matters further the phone number was a 607 area code-which is the code for Binghamton. When I told him I didn't have a phone then and the address in question was for my parents and that the number listed wasn't their's they said they had verified it and that I could pay by cash, credit or check. I asked them who Verizon New York Inc was and they said it used to be Bell Atlantic. At that point I asked them to send documentation in writing and they said they would but that this would take it to the next level. There is no doubt that this is a false collection attempt. I put a fraud alert on my credit right away but I don't know how that will keep them from ruining my credit. Michael Alexandria, VirginiaU.S.A.

AFNI Still reporting on my credit. Bloomington Illinois
AFNI is trying to collect $961.00 from an Alltel cellular bill from 1998. I paid this bill off in 2000. They continued to send collection notices requesting half of the amount. In 2003, I paid half again in an effort to remove the bad debt from my credit report. In 2007, it is still on my credit report and I am still receiving collection notices. Traci Semmes, AlabamaU.S.A.

Received a collection notice from AFNI Collections the other day stating I owe $470.67 for a past cell bill from Verizon Communications. Never had Verizon Wireless, called Verizon and they never heard of the number. Tried calling AFNI and they kept directing me to make an appt on-line to have someone call me. AFNI even used an old area code number from where I used to live in California over 10 years ago! I have already sent them a registered letter stating for them to show proof of deliquency, where and when and with what identification was used. They have not responded yet.

Afni Possible bill collection scam Bloomington Illinois
Today received an offical looking collection notice for a past due bill for over $1000 with an orignal creditor being Verizon Communitcations, Inc. Called Afni, Inc. and the representative stated we might be the victim of an identity theft. We have never had an account with Verizon or used any of their services. Supposedly these charges go back more than 5 years and we had never receved bill from Verizon at any time...until this collection notice. The police have been called in and are launching an investigation. I am demanding a debt validation from Afni in addition to proof that the company is legitimate and lisenced to do business in Il. The company representative stated we have the right to dispute the claim but it would be assumed that this debt if valid until proved otherise. J. Great Falls, MontanaU.S.A.

Afni Ripoff and Fraudulent Billing $1474.72 Bloomington Illinois
I received a collection bill from Afni inc, dated Jan 2, 2007 for the amount of $1474.72 from the original creditor Verizon Communications, Inc. that was opened by someone else on my name back in 6/2000-9/2000 in West Covina, CA that I have never lived in. I contacted Verizon to verify the phone number that is listed in the collection bill, but I was told that they cannot view past 3 years. Verizon representative told me to contact Afni for further info and also gave me Afni phone number that they have it in the list. I called Afni and I was very surprised to hear my SSN and my mother name. Where are all these infos come from ?. Is Verizon acting as a culprit for selling my personal info to 3rd parties ?. After reading many other Afni ripoff reports, I know that this is a fraudulent billing. What should I do to dispute the debt and how to sue them ?. Your suggestion or any detail info is greatly appreciated ! Chris Northridge, CaliforniaU.S.A.

AFNI Fraudulent collection of verizon accounts Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
In mid June I was contacted by someone from some where (they wouldn't give me the name of the company) regarding a Verizon bill from 1999. I requested a copy of the bill and the authorization from the creditor, for them to collect the monies. They became very irrate, demanding that I pay the bill and I hung up. I review my credit report fairly often and notice that 2 different 'unpaid' Verizon bills showed up on my credit report within the last 90 days. They are for the same period of time (2001 - 2002) but with different accounts numbers and balances. The creditor is listed on both as 'Verizon Former' with no contact information. I have sent a letter to AFNI asking for a copy of the bill and telling them to only contact me in writing. We shall see. Thanks Cathey Cathedral City, CaliforniaU.S.A.

AFNI CAN'T BELIEVE THIS NIGHTMARE ripoff Bloomington Illinois
My husband and I applied for a loan last week and found out that I have a Collections account on my credit report. We pulled it up ourselves and found this company called AFNI, both of us were at a loss. So, I made the mistake of calling them, don't I wish I would have found this website first. NEVER call them, deal strictly through the US Mail, other posters on this website say that they're scared of committing mail fraud. They were not helpful at all and I found them to be extremely rude and aggressive. They said that I actually owed for 2 accounts, one had been reported to the credit agencies and one was getting ready to be reported. Both accounts total $275.00 and one is from 2001 and one is from 2003. The phone numbers and addresses they referenced are correct (where do they get this information???) but the time frames are off from when I actually lived in those houses and I never closed the account in 2001, it was just transferred to the new address. They also claimed that they have sent me several notices. I have NOT received a single notice from AFNI (or Verizon for that matter) about either of these items. My husband and I THINK their scam is that they don't send the notices, claim they do and then wait until someone like us applies for a loan and finds it on their credit reports. We all know you'll do almost anything to clear up your credit report in that instance and we think that's what they're banking on. My recommendation is to keep reading on this website, there is a lot of good information on here and it helped me compose a letter to AFNI to dispute these charges. We were also able to find that even if this debt was valid, the Virginia Statute of Limitations is 3 years from the final bill, so check the Statute of Limitations for your state and don't let them bully you. I also recommend that you dispute it with the credit bureaus, even it it isn't on there yet. I even called Verizon, they were very nice but couldn't help me. All she could verify was that I did have accounts with those numbers at one time (duh, already knew that) and they they did sell a bunch of accounts to AFNI. She couldn't even tell me if I was one of them. Count me in on any lawsuits. I fear I'll be fighting AFNI for a VERY long time, but it's become a matter of principal now.
