Their address can be found easily, if you Google "Dean & Associates". Not as easily if you use the whole business name.

It should match 101 Century 21 Drive Suite 107, Jacksonville FL, 32216. Phone: (904) 721-3705.

This company has had claims placed against it many times, most notably by the State of Illinois.

Mostly, they use unfair, unethical, and illegal methods of debt recovery.

If you feel you are being harassed, or if they won't even cooperate with you well enough to validate the debt, report them to your local Attourney General. Report them to the BBB, and report them to the Federal Trade Commission.

Don't be scared! It is highly unlikely that they can take any action against you, especially wage-garnishments, warrants for arrest, and reposession of property.

They are a debt collection agency, not a law office. Unless they own your debt outright (also unlikely), they can't take any legal action against you. If they do own your loan (again, unlikely), the worst they can do is file a civil suit against you, not a criminal case.

It is not a crime to owe money!

I wrote a letter to the Better Business Bureau and told them my situation with Smith Dean and Associates. Smith, Dean and Associates basically lied saying, " No employee of Smith, Dean & Associates ever stated jail or warrants." Now someone is not telling the truth, and I have a family member, who they had called, saying I was going to jail for fraud.
This company is past dirty! They also stated in the letter to the BBB that the reason why they were unable to do business in IL was because they were not properly licensed. And that, "We have taken care of this with the State Attorney Office."
There's no getting around these crooks. They are liars and will pull anything out of a hat to keep their bottoms clean.
I will be writing the BBB again and telling them more on how this story fits together. There's far to many holes in Smith, Dean and Associates story.

I just got had for 1300 dollars yesterday from a now Smith, Dean & Associates out of Jacksonville, FL. I got a call yesterday about a debt that I thought was paid over 6 years ago, saying that this guy was a investegator with the fraud division and that if I couldn't come up with the money they were posting a warrant for my arrest and there was nothing that could be done and I would be picked up and charged with 2 felonies. Now I'm on probation for a misdemeanor offense right so I freaked out a little I can't go to jail I will lose my job, and there goes everything else I have worked so hard for. So needless to say I came up with the money and after they got payment I thought it was strange because the guy said that no one has to know about this not my probation officer, not the DOC its gone no where on my record, so I thought that was awfully funny I come and start to investigate a lil more into the company to find web sites like this and realize that I have been had. So I have talked to local authorities and I am going to bringing a law let me assure you all there is no debters prison its a rediculous ploy to get your money, in my case it worked. But I have a address and a phone number for anyone who wants it # is (904) 721-3713 and their address is 101 Century 21 Dr. Suite 107 Jacksonville, FL. 32216

same story here, im reporting these frauds as we speak, i wont let it go until something is done to "ROBERT DAVIS". he gave out personal info about me to my family and even neighbors, and threatened to have me arrested if i didnt pay 320$ by 4:00pm today. Does anyone know if your debt actually gets paid off or if this asshole pockets the money? im suing either way, so should you.

These creeps called me AT MY OFFICE, telling me they had my wife (who is pregnant) on two felony accounts of passing bad checks and that the "restitution" was over $1000. This tore me up pretty bad, because I'm a clean citizen and so is my wife. We don't break the law (other than a couple speeding tickets when I was a kid) and we don't write checks we can't pay off.
"Angie Smith" called my office with this big story about how she had 65 cases and was due in court but they only picked my wife at random out of three or four people, yadda yadda yadda (it's a long story).
We have the documentation to prove the check they were trying to extort us for (which is exactly what these frauds do) cleared the bank and the company it was too was paid--even the bookkeeper at that company knows it (she even called after the mess was straightened out THE FIRST TIME to appologize to me and beg me not to sue her...which I should have done, but that's what I get for trying to forgive people. It won't happen again.) My wife and I have reported these people to the FBI, who have told us they are aware of Smith, Dean & Associates--aka United Processing, today we go see our lawyer, and I will also speak with Steven Cohen, as well as the Florida BBB and the state and local AG.
If Angie Smith (alias Lisa Smith, and possibly alias Tracy Parker) or any of her flunkies call you--DON'T SEND THEM MONEY. She has nothing on you and neither does her "firm".
Just record the number, the name of the person speaking to you and hang up.
When they keep calling, repeat the process and then file a harassment charge.
Frauds like these people should be stopped. I've worked with collections agencies on bills I've owed and NONE of them have acted like these "people".
Smith, Dean & Associates--aka United Processing, ARE CRIMINALS.
