wow very wow how rude called at 9:00 p.m.
I'm the neighbor that gets these calls for this bitch!!(YOUR NAME) BASTARDS CALL EVERYDAY THREE TO FOUR TIMES DAILY AND I'M SICK OF IT!!!
here's a link to the bbb report on the scum at allied interstate:
These creeps work very hard at giving collection agencies their well-deserved, rotten reputations.
They need to be stopped. Illegally trying to pass as a "collection agency". Harassing people.

Toll Free Caller at 3:34 pm today. In checking around with various call complaint sites, I was able to learn that the origin of such calls is a company called Allied Interstate, which has to do with debt collection.
What is weirder is that someone has been using my name as a spoof cover! This afternoon, a friend told me she got a call from me. The middle initial was "J" not "L", however, so I knew it was a fake. No number showed under the name. Who could be doing this? next door to me lives an attorney who runs a collection agency. I would not put it past him to come up with some niddle-piddle stunt to aggravate me. (A few weeks ago he hijacked the contact list from a local church. Then he spoofed the number of a local university -- and the university was not amused.
So, be wary if strange things start happening with your caller list or your ID. It could be that the enemy of someone you know is out to play games.
This was another harassing call from Allied Interstate,
Allied Interstate is owned by IQor, a large outsorcing firm,
known for routinely, knowingly and persistently contact people
who do not owe any debt.
It as not easy to find a mailing address for Allied Interstate.
Even their web site seems to contain none.
contains basic contact information, although it needs to be confirmed
as it might be partially out of date. At least http://www.irmc.com
is an old URL. While still owned by IQor, now it seems to be dead:

Address: ALLIED INTERSTATE, INC

Connecticut Dec 26th, 2012
some people who always have a heavy india accent. wish they would just stop!!!!! just some bill collector telling me I owe money that I dont even owe.
I keep getting the same calls daily and don't answer any 800 888 866 calls but it is still annoying! I saw some info on bottom of this page about phones with call block...well mine has that feature. I just set their number on my block list,,I hope this works!!!
keep getting calls for a 'ramone" something??? cant tell what the caller is saying the last name is because of the very thick accent but no one lives here by the name of Ramone! They dont believe me and continue to call sometimes 3 times a day...

have not had my new number for even a 24 hrs yet and these people are calling. do have no idea who they are...
This is a BRAND NEW phone number and new phone I had gotten about a week ago, So don't even know how they got it already. I called back and it was some Indian that said Interstate Something...
Tammy, the FCC has almost no jurisdiction over debt collectors. The calls continued because you ''filed a complaint'' and sat back waiting for a rescue. The calls will continue until YOU take charge and confront their source, in print and on the record. The laws already discussed in this thread are there to help you.

My teenage son has received FORTY SEVEN phone calls since Aug. 31, 2012 from these idiots. I have filed a complaint with the FCC. This is harassment. Why can't it be stopped??
Joey, I have my doubts that your skip trace call volume will be considered ''harassment in a big way'' or any way by a judge or consumer lawyer. Drop that ''shut up'' letter on their heads and *then* you can talk harassment.
Rhode Island Aug 28th, 2012
I have documented 20 calls in 20 days from these people. Sometimes they skip the weekend and then call twice a day during the week. We owe no bills to anyone so this is harassment in a big way.
Now to review your real options when iQor/Allied Interstate calls:
- If any third party collection agency says you owe something, be sure to respond on real paper to its federally required dunning letter with a dispute and validation request. Given the industry's documented need to break laws to get at your assets, you should dispute even if you agree slightly with the debt claim.
- You also have control of when, where, and how you are contacted. Your dispute notice may add a request to limit or revoke consent to call again. The agency legally *must* obey.
- If the account cannot legally be collected, or it's simply not you the agency wants, you're free to send a full ''cease-communication'' notice, cutting off all contact. Indicate which phone numbers and addresses are off-limits. You're not giving away anything the agency can't already know or find.
Send all notices via USPS Certified with return card. This is the method promoted by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs, and the only way to set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at an agency's risk of a lawsuit from you. Pay close attention to all communication and document it well. If those contacts yield legal violations, you may collect *from* the collectors through a judge or arbitrator.

Mary, your caller does not maintain this site or this web page. Your caller is not going to dutifully study random forum complaints and cannot magically determine which numbers should not be called based on anonymous comments.
Dee, debt collectors are not selling you anything, so are thus exempt from using the DNC registry. The following URL links to the FTC FAQ page which the DNC site nearly begged everyone to read before you registered your numbers. See items 28 through 32.

California Jul 20th, 2012
They hung up and I had to call back. Couldn't understand as they were in India. They were looking for someone I did not know. As I was on the Do Not Call list, I asked them to remove my number from their system. Very hard to understand as their English was very broken. Still did not know what they wanted since it wasn't me.
Bill collector, they will attempt to collect on invalid debts past statute of limitations or debts that have been resolved otherwise. 8:34PM EST 5/10/2012
Received calls four times during week (4/30-> 5/4/2012) Two calls occured within fifteen minutes of 1200 PDT and twice more around 8:17pm PDT. Background noise is detected. No voice acknowledgement from the caller occurs.
California May 04th, 2012
9:42PM! REALLY?!? As I said before, desperate and illegal, beware of these folks.

California Mar 29th, 2012
Allied Intrstate Collection - This is for an old A/C with Amoco that is about 18 years old. And this is for a small bal that was paid.
We have been receiving calls from this number 1-2 times daily for weeks.
This number calls my cell phone at least 15 times a day..I consider this harassment and I don't think this can be legal...
District of Columbia Nov 18th, 2011
This number has been coming up on my CP for a few weeks. I finally answered it today. got dead air. No one there. After 30 seconds the call disconnected.
