Allied Interstate’s main focus is debt collection. They purchase delinquent debts from credit card companies, department stores, student loan financing companies, and other usual sources of consumer debt. Their website is designed to capture as much information from debtors and others visiting their site as possible. Complaint, contact, and help forms ask site visitors for their account and contact information without informing them of their rights. Although their site does contain information about consumer rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), this information is not posted in an inconspicuous location. Instead, site visitors must click on a link labeled, “Legal Disclosures,” in the footer section. Allied Interstate, LLC has a reputation for calling consumers an excessive number of times, and for attempting to collect debts that are not owed.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Allied Interstate?
Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court
The District Attorney’s Offices in the Counties of Los Angeles and Santa Clara have each posted a press release on their respective websites indicating the reasons for a $10 million class action lawsuit against Allied Interstate. The case in Santa Clara alleges that employees of Allied, “calling from all over the world, have subjected numerous people to harassing calls for months on end, even when no money was owed.” One man received 126 calls in less than a month; another received 88 calls during a three-month period; and a third received numerous daily calls for the wrong person and the wrong number. In Los Angeles County, a couple received hundreds of calls for over three years, even after reporting the violations to the police. Both complaints cite a history of predatory violations, some of which have been previously settled in multimillion dollar agreements with the Federal Trade Commission. Allied denies wrongdoing on its BBB webpage.
Can Allied Interstate Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely Allied would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate. However, debt collection agencies are known to have summoned debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. Contacting an attorney BEFORE this could possibly happen would be a smart move. We’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against unscrupulous debt collection harassers.

Allied Interstate Calling You?
Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).
But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
