Was hanging out in the chat room this afternoon, and someone came on asking if I was affiliated with allied interstate Inc. After telling them I wasn't (cuz I'm not! :D ) they told me they were sure that Allied was stealing/misusing someone's identity. They then asked if I knew who the CEO was, and if I could get their contact info. I linked them to Bud Hibbs website and the information noted on there for Allied.
I asked them if they ever had any type of account/claim with Allied, and they then told me that they never did, but were going to contact authorities to find out who "opened an account" for them. I think they may have misunderstood what i meant (so I guess that's my fault, I didn't know of any other way to put it), but has anyone else heard anything about possible stolen identities?
Fortunately I've never had the opportunity to "work" with them, but I figured I'd just pass this along for discussion.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
