Allied interstate student loan collection.
Apparently these "classy" well-trained, guard dogs, will bark up the wrong tree.
My uncle has a student loan from 20 years ago. Im the lucky chap that has the same name as my dead beat uncle. So "John davis" the collector thinks i'm lieing... He thinks im just denying that Im my uncle. WE HAVE THE SAME FREAKEN NAME!!! Anyways... These guys will call and call until a person might need therapy. I CANT SLEEP WITH OUT THEM CALLING. So i decided to help my uncle take care of this matter for good. Of course my recommendation and any professional will tell you "Its always best to make payments!" but its always best to know your options before negotiating with these "Classy" Collectors. Heres a website I found that some "Student Loan collector" Made... He spills the beans....

Hes a collector so i still hate him, but personally I think this is the first time some one actually came out the laid out the rules on the table. Its a mystery as to why this type of thing isn't more accessible.

July 2008 I just received a letter from these clowns. They say they acquired the debt from LVNV and it's an ancient debt from a long closed company that was discharged in bankruptcy over 9 years ago. And they have associated my name with the account even though I was never actually a holder of the account, only of a secondary card. I'm not giving these clowns what they want.

June 2008 Got a call from 1-866-383-5072 I answered the phone and heard a lady ask for my wife. The name she asked was wrong and I said no one hear by that name. The she asked again by the correct name. I said this is her husband what can I do for you. She said what is your wife's birthday? I said what company are you calling from. She said I can't tell you that with out you giving me her birthday to verify information. I said I am not giving you any info until you tell me what company you are from. She said I can't do that with out knowing her birthday that is illegal. I said o.k. good bye and hung up. All of our bills are paid and we are not behind on anything and she never had any student loans, we have never declared bankruptcy, and we have a very good credit rating.

Allied Intestate or who ever this agency is the lowest of low they call all hour of the day 7 days a week.If you give the them any information or try the pay you pay for a lifetime the bill is never paid off.If its a just bill it should be paid sooner or later but these people will not give you account number or who the creditor is.

Would not tell me what company she was calling from. First she asked for my wife but by the wrong name. I said I am her husband and she could talk to me. She would not give me any info or tell me what company she was from until I gave her my wife's birthday, which I did not and then I hung up.
