Debt Consolidation Forums Identity theft - scams and security forums

Allied Interstate having my personal info

member profile picture

I was just contacted by Allied today at work and was asked to give them the last four of my social security number. Stupidly I gave it to them. They then said that I was not the person that they were looking for. We had the same last names but different first names. They then asked for my cell number so they can have it in their database to never call me again, and again I gave it to them. I was wondering if I should be worried about a possible case of identity theft.




Guest, hi and welcome to the site. No one likes getting calls at work but I would have not given a stranger my ss number no matter what or any other numbers. Do you have there phone numbers, if so I would report them to your local police station or to the FTC for more infomation on that number and mabye to a google search on that number to see who they are. Start with that and someone will come along soon with more advise on the same.

No. But I would worry about being contacted for a debt that is not yours.

Never give your information to anyone, especially a collection agency. They will often tie it to a debt that is in not yours through their sloppy skip trace methods.

Your are lucky. Allied has such a bad reputation for having untrained personnel that I am surprised they even wanted to confirm who you weren't. Usually they just keep harrassing the wrong person. They were described as a class action lawsuit waiting to happen
on a NACA lawyers site.

what scares me is that they can still call people at work and ask these personal questions..and because these people have been contacted even wrongly.. people are at first afraid and still give strangers info they shouldn't be giving them!!!!
