I recieved an erroneous bill in the amount of 542.34 from alyon tech..They claim I used there services for 106 min. on may 1,03.this bill is obviously a fabricatuion because they claim that 93 of these mins. occurred in a 61 min span and then they claim I used there services every 2 mins. for a 10 min. span(log on-log off 5 times). I goes on like this but you get the idea.I've tried to contact them by phone but theres only an animated recording.And there website is inaccessable. I have no intention of paying this bill. However if my letter is registered with the many others you've recieved maybe, it can help others who've payed these erroneous bills to get their money back. Ken streamwood, IllinoisU.S.A.

Nineteen States Sue Software Firm; Allege Web (censored) Thu May 15, 2003 04:44 PM ET SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California and 18 other states on Thursday brought a consumer protection lawsuit against Alyon Technologies Inc. for allegedly running a (censored)that automatically connected peoples' computers to porn sites then charged steep fees to their phone bills. California Attorney General Bill Lockyer in a statement said Alyon, a New Jersey-based software company, installed pop-up ads that automatically dialed expensive adult Web sites without consent. He said the suit was brought after his office received dozens of complaints from consumers who had received steep bills from porn sites they had never knowingly visited. The sites Alyon links to require no credit cards but charge $4.99 per minute to a consumer's phone bill, according to the complaint. The complaint also charges that Alyon engages in unfair business practices when attempting to collect payment from consumers. The suit is asking Alyon to provide better instructions on how consumers can remove the automatic dialer software from their computers. Alyon could not immediately be reached for comment.

Companies accused of (censored)billing for pornographic Web sites By Michael D. Sorkin Post-Dispatch updated: 05/15/2003 01:09 PM The attorneys general of Missouri and Illinois are suing two companies accused of (censored)billing consumers for accessing pay-per-view pornographic Web sites. The suits alleges that Alyon Technologies Inc. of Secaucus, N.J., and Telcollect Inc. of Norcross, Ga., billed consumers for accessing services they had not ordered, refused to remove the bills and threatened to turn them over to a collection agency. In some cases, consumers reported getting bills after a pop-up ad for a pornographic Web site appeared on their computer screens. At least one consumer reported immediately closing the ad and still getting billed. About 100 consumers complained to Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon; nearly that many complained to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Madigan said the services are set up to allow easy access to adult sites: no credit card number is required and 900 telephone number blocks are ineffective because people are unknowingly connected to a number with a New Jersey area code. Consumers and kids may not always know how to avoid spam or pop-up traps, but these companies know exactly what they're doing when it comes to making money, Madigan said. Nixon said some people who got bills did not even own a computer or have access to the Internet One consumer paid a bill of more than $600. Consumers who called the toll-free number listed on their bills were told they had to prove they did not order the service. The Missouri suit asks a judge in Jackson County Circuit Court in Kansas City to issue an order for: restitution for consumers, discontinuing (censored)billing and requiring the defendants to post a $50,000 bond if they continue offering Internet services in Missouri. The suit also seeks civil penalties of $1,000 for each (censored)act. The Illinois suit, filed in Sangamon County Circuit Court in Springfield, seeks a permanent injunction, a $50,000 civil penalty and $50,000 for each violation found to have been committed with intent to (censored). Both suits also names as defendant Stephane Touboul, who's described as CEO and sole shareholder of Alyon. Florida and other states, also are investigating Alyon. A Web site called ripoffreport.com contains complaints from consumers, including a California man who says he was billed for viewing an adult web site while no one was home to use his computer. He says Alyon uses a Trojan horse computer program that lurks in computers and dials toll numbers without permission. He says the program connected his computer to a 900-toll-call number even though his phone is set up to block such calls. Another complaint, from a man in New York, gives directions on how to remove Alyon's dialer from your computer as well as how to block your phone number from the company's Web site. There is a RICO ((censored)eering) investigation going on in Florida which means that all penalties, including possible jail time for Alyon and its employees ,could be increased. KEEP COMPLAINING. IF YOU SENT THEM MONEY FOR A BOGUS BILL, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET IT BACK WITH INTEREST. WE DID IT. THANK YOU PEOPLE AND THANK YOU RIP OFF REPORTS. P.S. THE FLOODGATES ARE OPEN, NOW WATCH THE STORIES ON ALYON. Allan Baltimore, MarylandU.S.A.

Alyon Technologies ripoff- fraudulant billing! how come the state of New Jersey still allows this to go on! Seacaucus New Jersey
I have been constantly harassed and billed by Alyon Tech. for charges that no one in my home made to an Adult Website. I tried to call the # listed above but got either a recording or a very rude and beligerent person who said that I had to pay or it would go to collections. The original bill was for $85.00. Now it is in collections for $110.26. When I spoke with the collections agency, First Credit of America (1-866-505-8249) they refused to provide me with an account #, specific web address that I was being billed for, address or phone # for Alynon or any other info except the date of the charges. (Feb. 27, 2003) They said that I had no legal recourse in order to dispute the billing and that they would continue to call me once a day until I paid the bogus charges. I know this to be wrong as I have been involved in collections for many years. This company has to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Thank-You for your time and for being a helpline for those that are ripped off by unscrupulous companies. Stephanie Hickory, North CarolinaU.S.A.

Alyon Technologies (AKA) First Credit Of America ripoff fraudulent business activities illegal collection activities Secaucus New Jersey
It seems thousands of us have been harassed and victimized by these companies. Their mode of operation is to deceive then charge for services never purchased or agreed to by the victims. Fraud is deception in practice, and this is definately fraud. To be actionalble, fraud must be deliberate, and we must prove that harm was done. Also it helps to know the contents of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (On the FTC web-site. Document exactly how you were deceived, how the deception was deliberate, and what harm was done to you. Also keep records and document how First Credit of American and Merchants Credit Guide have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Then submit as I have done your documentation to the Illinois Consumer Fraud Bureau, and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs as well as the FBI and the FTC web sites. I also suggest that we all consider a class action lawsuit against these fraudulent companies. I would be willing to coordinate such an effort if we can all agree to pursue it. Bill P.

I'd update my old one but it is so far back in the pile... Alyon Trojan horse: May be present on web sites attractive to children, ie; game tips, improve or update your game, game (censored) Cure: Remove Trojan horse parts either manually or by software listed in other filings on this website. NOTE: I found more than just the IEAccess/IEAccess2/IEDisco parts. Also found were the ScratchandWin and I lookup parasites. I feel that these others came in when the Alyon website was contacted by my son's computer. Took me a couple of hours to clean the machine. The crap hides all over the place! Received a letter from the State of New Jersey Office of the Attorney General today reminding me to REFILE my complaint with Alyon at this address: Alyon Technologies, Inc. PO Box 6049 Elizabeth, NJ 07207-6049 I've sent letters to 4 of the 5 of the addresses I have for them so far. The most recent were on 8/3. Best money I've spent! Called Merchants' Credit Guide Co. today (collection agency) about their client and the court order. I was told that Alyon was vindicated by the court order. I informed him that he was misinformed. He said he had a copy of the court order in front of him and he has done research on the internet about the vindication. I also told him that I have sent numerous letters to Alyon with no response and they were in violation of section 5 of the FTC Act-Deceptive Practices + Unfairness, Pay-Per-Call Rule, IV B and C or D in addition I've contacted the FTC, FBI, FCC and will contact the judge that issued the order. I also told him that his company had better chill out until this ends because they will be in as much trouble as their client when this is over. He mumbled something and hung up on me. MY ADVICE: Contact Alyon as soon as possible, certified, return receipt requested. Clean the computer but try to save the Trojan horse pieces to floppy or CD as evidence (I didn't). Keep a file on everything you receive from them INCLUDING ENVELOPES. My first bill was due 2/19 but the envelope was postmarked AFTER that date. Keep a copy of everything you send to anybody including all receipts from the Post Office, the green cards when Alyon receives your letter, everything. Go buy a cheap file/envelope to hold all of this stuff. You may need it (The Attorney Generals Office suggested You may wish to consult with a proivate attorney before making your decision to ensure your rights are protected.). REFILE YOUR COMPLAINT TO THE FTC AND ALYON TO PARTICIPATE IN COMPLAINT RESOLUTION ESTABLISHED BY THE FEDERAL COURT. The addresses are as follows: The Federal Trade Commission Alyon Technologies, Inc.

Last week my wife seemed upset at me. When I asked her, she had received a call frof above company with the complaint that there was a bill outstanding in collections. When she asked about it, it was told to her it was an internet porn site. When we spoke, I needed to reassure her that this charge was false. They then called again, was willing to settle. My wife asked if they would call back when I was home.They reluctantly agreed. I spoke to a Ms. Williams who kept repeating that the settlement was a good deal. I told her only if I had actually incurred the charges. she then told me they would call daily to attempt to collect a debt.. then it got ugly. I suggested this would be harassment, she said unless I had a lawyer, I should not talk of what they could do. I asked for written documentation of this so called claim. She said she would e-mail me. This was hours ago. I asked her for a physical address, she refused, but offered me a web site, which is not operational. I will see this matter through. Richard North Haven, ConnecticutU.S.A.

To the best of my knowledge, I have never given any authorization to any company, including Alyon technologies, to disconnect me from my service provider, MSN, INC, to connect me to themselves and charge me for any type of service. I have never received a bill from Alyon tech or from my phone company for any charges. I am totally disputing any charges or talk time to this company. I have never given any authorization to disconnect me from my ISP and connect me to some other website. I have never given any age, name, address, credit card information or other personal information nor have I ever received any bill from Alyon Technologies. The first time I've even heard of this company is when a 3rd party collection agency has called me. I have called my local service provider, regarding this matter and had a 900 block put on my phone the first time I've heard of this matter, not realizing what this was about. They agreed that something fishy was going on. I have young children in my household and If I find out that some porno website has allowed them to view any type of filthy disgusting material over the internet without my direct consent, I will be taking this up with the FCC, PUC, and the Better Business Bureau along with my Attorney and state and local police officials to settle this matter in court. I am tired of dealing with 3rd party ignoramuses who do not know the full story about this matter nor can they properly speak the English language. The next time I get a phone call from your company about this matter, consider it an invitation to direct legal proceedings on which I am more than willing to commence. I invite you to provide me with an invoice or any documentation that I have ever received a bill or mailed invoice for any of these charges. It can't be done because you don't even have my correct information, which I have already confirmed with someone from your company! You said I was at xxxx Elder Lane, and I am not at currently, nor ever have ever lived on any Elder Lane. I am copying the public utilities commission and my personal attorney on this letter. s&S Cedar Rapids, IowaU.S.A.

Alyon Technologies Aka Merchants Credit Guide harassing debt collection on bogus debts Chicago Illinois
This is just an update on this firm, which I understand in operating under several aka's....they have an excellent screen-prompt reply script, and are very belligerent when pushed off topic - the phone people must be under a tight clock and constant audio surveilance... background noise indicates that this is a large phone room....the name Ken Hughes is used as the teaser, but he is never available.... Their phone message states that they are not a sales call, but does not state any company name or reason for your call back. In all probablitlity they are buying ancient debt lists (the account they are trying to colect on from me has been closed and off the record for 7 years) and trying to collect on them. They insist that all formal communication be in writing, but will continue to inundate you with autodialer messages during that time. Any activity directed at you should be immediately reported to the FTC via their online complaint site. Only an huge public response via the web will get any action, if that will at all.
