"Interstate Collections" is located somewhere in Jacksonville, Flordia.

Also, the same switchboard operator who use to work for Ted, at Ellis Crosby & Associates, is now working at Interstate.

Weird ain't it?

Phone number: 866-225-4872

Hopefully no one has to deal with them, as many are starting to get threatening calls from them.

It's also possible that they are called something else, but I was told by another forum member that they are "Interstate". Whoever they are, the switchboard operator is definitely the same person who answered "how can I dircect your call" for Ted Crosby.

Mike




They also go by the name of Interstate Wire Compliance Bureau if I am correct.

Hi. Have you had dealings with Interstate Wire Compliance Bureau? I only did some checking around about the company she said was "Interstate Collections" because she said they were being very rude. When the switchboard operator came on the phone, I knew RIGHT AWAY she was the former employee of Ellis Crosby & Associates.

Ted Ellis Crosby was the owner of that company. He filed bankruptcy, however everyone believes he's still lurking off some service drive, in another office complex, in Jacksonville. He possibly took all his funds and opened up another new company, however it might be under the name of his partner in crime, **** Greenburg.

Could you provide more information about Interstate Wire Compliance Bureau, and what leads you to belive they also might be Interstate Collections.

Thanks a bunch-

Mike

PS: From other forum posts, it has been 99% verified that Anthony Galloway & Associates could also be Crosby.

I also have received calls from interstate wire. I know it is the same as elis crosby, anthony galloway because they all end the message or call with good luck to you. I usually say no good luck to you!

What a way to end a call! :D

Just remember that you are in control of the call. If need be, mention the call is being recorded at the begining of the conversation for your own personal verification needs. Since they won't mail you a validation of the debt, or provide you with an address to send a cease & desist letter, along with your own validation letter....this will be your only way to keep track of who you are talking to.

Hope all goes well for you in any dealings with this company.

Happy Thanksgiving-
Mike

Mikey, I have dealt with them. The number you posted is the same one they gave me. They try to act as if they are a government agency and they are ready to file a criminal complaint against you. I was scared enough to send a Money Gram payment that I am sure is now lost. After thinking about it, I realized that a govt agency would not be collecting via money gram or even calling you about it. When I called and asked the operator if they were a govt agency she put me on hold and I was disconnected a few minutes later.

I do not know the full details about "Interstate Collections". I do know, however, that the lady who answered for Ted Crosby, is now answering for Interstate. Ted Crosby is currently under investigation, and is NOT allowed to be collecting.

Ellis Crosby & Associates filed for bankruptcy when the tempature started getting hotter. Perhaps he has opened under another name, or his business partner Dick Greenburg. Right now, people are thinking Interstate, along with Anthony Galloway & Associates, could be his new business name.

I would use extreme caution in any transaction you do with Interstate or Anthony Galloway.

I just received a call from them too. They stated that they were collecting for "The Premier" company and asked if this was my account number, social security number, if there was where I worked. She also stated that she would hate from them to come to my work. She also said they would be filing criminal charges against me and had an affidavit on her desk and that I was a thief. Does anyone have any contact info for them besides a phone number? I read on the ripoff report that they were located in Cheyenne, Wyoming. What is the best way to deal with these crazy people? I would like to report them to the appropraite authorities.

Welcome to the forums. Did they state they were from "Interstate Collections"? The reason I put the name in quotations is because people have been under the impression that they could also be from Ellis Crosby & Associates who has filed bankrupct and opened under another name. It is also believed that he is operating under Anthony Galloway.

Whatever the case may be, no collection company or person has a right to threaten harm. There is a strict code of conduct and laws that must be followed while doing collections, one of which is the mini-miranda...."this call is an attempt collect a debt"....

The next time they call, I would ask for an address. Tell them you want to verify that she is, really who says she is. Once address has been obtained, you can send a cease telephone contact letter.

If this debt is truely yours, I would also try to work with them. Prolonging will only hurt your credit in the future.

HOWEVER, if this company can be verified as one of Crosby's, then further legal action might land on him; as he is not allowed to be collecting right now.

Mike
