Allied Interstate Complaint - Sue Allied Interstate
Several weeks ago, I began receiving calls on an almost daily basis from Allied Interstate at: 1 775-319-1506. I got as many as 4 calls in a day, starting early in the morning and going on until after 9 PM. I never answered the phone when Allied Interstate came up on Caller ID, and the prerecorded message left was always the same: without identifying the company or why they were calling me, they told me to call an 800 number re: an urgent matter.
I did some Google searching and found out that Allied Interstate is a notorious, unscrupulous debt collection agency. I also found out that calling the 800 number is a mistake as you will be treated rudely and insultingly. Like many people who are being harassed by this company, the debt in question IS NOT MINE.
I recently returned a call to 1 775-319-1506 and was told they are looking for a person whose first name is Michael. Michael is not my first name (I'm female) and there is no one at my number with that name. Allied told me they would delete my number from their records. Since then, they've called me 2 more times.
I've sent a "cease and desist" letter by certified mail, return receipt requested, to:
3000 Corporate Exchange
Columbus, OH 43231
This address was given to me by the State of Ohio Attorney General's Office. The Attorney General’s Office informs me that, if Allied Interstate fails to comply with my request to stop this erroneous harassment, they will take action on my behalf.
If you're being harassed by Allied Interstate, I hope you find this helpful. The Ohio AG was very helpful to me and I suggest you contact them. It doesn't matter if you don't live in Ohio (I don't). Ohio is where their Compliance Office (ha!) is located, so that gives the Ohio AG the right to go after them.
