"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.


I got a call from them by a Ricahrd Beecham. He stillhave not sent me a letter showing the debt I supposedly owe. He called me on the 23rd of Nov.

He has not called back after I asked for a letter. Should I continue to try and call him to get their address or wait until they call me again.

You should not tense yourself when dealing with this company. Make sure that you keep your basis strong. Think of keeping a track of everything so that you can defend yourself later.

I spoke to DA Wisenburg yesterday and called his bluff. Now they are supposedly sending my debt back to the orginal company. (That I have never heard of)

dkoen2001, if you send a Cease and Desist to a collection agency they are required by law to send the debt back to the original creditor, they cannot call you if at home or work if you notify them, if they do they are violating your rights under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. Any legitmate company knows what that means. Based on your email you have not done that, besides we can't track them down, they are frauds. They threatened me too, I called them on it you have to put it right back in their faces. Good Luck

If they were legit they would have no problem giving you their address. If they call back tell them you're recording the call and saving it for the FBI... I call to harrass them now, it's been great fun matter of fact. A little bit of their own medicine.

It's kind of hard to play hard ball with companies like these. Because the debt is owed no matter what, and when companies tack on high interest fees, and threaten, it makes it even harder to lodge a complaint, or clear your credit by ignoring them.

They know they have the higher power when they don't tell you who they really are. However, over time with all the complaints that get made and with everyones sneaky investigative work we can find out who they are.

While filing your complaint, tell them the next time they call that you find it hard to believe they are a real company when they have no website, no address to mail a certified check to, no local phone number to call, or any other information that can validate the debt to you.

This company is still in hot water. Keep all receipts and documents if you send anything to them. Record the calls if you must. In some states, recording the call on incoming lines is ok. In situations where outgoing calls are placed, you need to announce it.
