Summary: Is Allied Interstate coming after you for old debts? Are you trying to get in touch with them to tell them to stop or to settle your debt? Contact (or avoid) them with the phone numbers below.
Allied Interstate is a subsidiary of iQor, Inc. They are known for intervention solutions for 1st party collections, 3rd party collections, attorney collections, and bankruptcy collections. They have over 12 different call centers around the United States and have over 10,000 employees. They also operate in over 60 countries and have over 32,000 employees in 17 countries.
It has been found that Allied Interstate has been charged by the Attorney General for harassing consumers for debts they are not responsible for as well as using obscene or profane language. They have also been known to call repeatedly and hang up when people answer, this is basically harassment. Another violation of the FDCPA is revealing alleged debts to third parties without permission to do so. This is completely incorrect and illegal. Finally, they have also threatened legal action that they cannot take.
Despite all of these, Allied Interstate has failed to respond to these complaints. The Better Business Bureau has had numerous complaints regarding this and reveals patterns of issues. Due to this, there is an F rating on the BBB website.
Allied Interstate mentions on their website that you can call toll-free at (800) 811-4214 to speak to a “friendly representative”, from 9 am to 6 pm EST.
Other phone numbers might include:
It is important that you realize you have the right to ask a debt collector to stop contacting you. In order to officially stop this communication, you should send a letter to the debt collector and keep a copy of the letter. This is called a cease and desist.
You can either set limits or stop further communication. In order to do this, you need to exercise your rights. One option is to tell the collector that you do not owe the debt. In this case, the debt collector will need to verify that you are responsible for the debt.
You should also ask for a copy of your statement that showcases what you owe, and a copy of the original credit agreement. They can also prove with other documents or information. If you have evidence that you do not owe the debt you should get copies of this and showcase that information with the letter.
After a debt collector receives your letter, the debt collector is able to contact you only for a few reasons. Either to tell you they will no longer contact you or to tell you that there are actions placed against you, (such as a lawsuit).
You should also know that you need to respond within 30 days after you have originally been contacted by the debt collector in order to ask for more information. If more than 30 days have gone by you can still ask for the information that you need, although it may be too late. If you get taken to court you may be able to bring up this information again, so it is good to get as much information as you can.
Be sure to make a copy of your letter and then send the original to the debt collector. Always send by certified mail and pay for a "return receipt." You can also send the letter by fax but keep a copy if you do this method.
If you ignore debt collectors or avoid them you can run into trouble. This is why it is important to ask them to stop calling you instead. Even if you believe you do not owe the debt, you should tell the debt collector that. If there is another problem you can report this in your answer. Even if the debt is yours, you will still have the right to not speak with the collector as long as you do it in the correct manner.
Keep good records of your communications with a debt collector. It's a good idea to keep a file of all letters or documents a debt collector sends you. Keep copies of anything you send to a debt collector. Write down dates and times of conversations along with notes about what you discussed. These records can help you if you have a dispute with a debt collector, meet with a lawyer, or go to court.
Allied Interstate LLC is a debt collection company that is usually hired by creditors to collect overdue bills. If you are suffering from any type of harassment from Allied Interstate you need to be aware that you have rights as a consumer under the Federal Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Under the FDCPA, Allied Interstate is not allowed to do the following:
If a debt collector continues to call you after receiving a cease and desist letter, they may be violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). It is also illegal to use deceptive or abusive practices overall to collect a debt from you. If any of these rights are violated, you can actually sue the debt collector for violating your rights. If you decide to sue under the FDCPA, and you win, then they will be required to pay your attorney's fees, and may even need to pay you damages.

"First time getting sued by a debt collector and I was searching all over YouTube and ran across SoloSuit, so I decided to buy their services with their attorney reviewed documentation which cost extra but it was well worth it! SoloSuit sent the documentation to the parties and to the court which saved me time from having to go to court and in a few weeks the case got dismissed!" – James
