Dealing with Allied Interstate: Know Your Rights

Allied Interstate, a large collection agency headquartered in Minnesota, engages with consumers through a multitude of phone numbers. Utilizing an automated dialing system, the agency sends out numerous automated calls, many of which are managed by call centers located overseas. Allied Interstate’s approach to debt collection encompasses a range of tactics that have raised concerns among consumers.

Tactics and Concerns

The agency’s strategies reportedly include aggressive communication methods that border on harassment. Some consumers have reported experiencing:

  • Unsolicited calls to third parties regarding personal debts.
  • Unfounded threats impacting credit reports.
  • Claims of intending to garnish wages without the legal basis to do so.

Such practices have not only caused undue stress but have also raised questions about the legality of their methods.

What You Can Do

If you’ve been on the receiving end of calls from Allied Interstate and believe you’re being harassed, it’s essential to know you’re not without recourse. Here are a few steps you can take:

  1. Document Everything: Keep detailed records of all communications, including dates, times, and the nature of the conversation.
  2. Know Your Rights: Familiarize yourself with your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which sets strict guidelines on how debt collectors can engage with you.
  3. Seek Legal Counsel: If you suspect that Allied Interstate’s actions are violating your rights, it might be time to consult with a legal professional.
