These guys operate from outside of the United States in Pakistan (you know, the country that was hiding Osama Bin Laden only 10 miles from a major military base near their capital). They have data mined information on people, usually debts that have been completely written of or have passed the statute of limitations, and call you to try to extract more information and confirm what info they already have, i.e. name, current address, work number and location. They then fraudulently create a fictional debt and demand payment, harassing you by calling you constantly at all hours (a violation of the law), calling you at work (a violation of the law) and mailing demand letters to you (mail fraud). The problem is, since they operate from outside the U.S., it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible for the FBI or Postal Inspectors to prosecute them; they would have to specifically identify each individual, connect them to a specific call or letter, charge them, request extradition (which isn't going to happen with Pakistan) and fly them back to the U.S. for a trial. Just one would be exorbitantly expensive, and this disgusting scum of a company has its' employees make hundreds of calls a day. The solutions: 1. don't answer when you see it is them 2. If you do answer, give them an obviously fictitious name, like Hillary Clinton and your address is the last beach house on the left in Key West. 3. While talking to them and giving them fictitious information, start talking in a sultry voice and tell the caller you are getting aroused and ask them what they are wearing. Tell them you are wearing a see-through scuba suit with a starfish thong, which has a strategically placed blowhole. 4. Do a Lil Jon on them; ( if you don't know it, google it). Every time they ask something, yell "WHHHAAAAATTTTT!?", then respond to whatever they say next with "OOOOOOHHHHHHHHKKKAAAAAAAAAYYYY!". 5. Lastly, you can gently place the phone against your genitals, leaving it there until they hang up, thus performing a metaphysical "Blow me" to these unwashed, disgusting detritus of foul and incestuous DNA.
Worked for me! Have fun!
these idiots call several times a week-I don't answer because my message is in ENGLISH(my national language). So, they can keep calling.
These people claim to be Allied LLC calls everyday, at least 3 times a day for years and years and never leaves a message. I called them back today because I never answer because we get so many scammers, and they tell me they are Allied LLC and want to speak to my husband. I asked if they are a collection agency and they would not tell me what they are or what they do! Is there is any way I can stop these calls? Thank you!
This number started calling me since 9/19 this year and its been 17 times so far. Never pick it up because i know its a scam. Even telemarketers arent THAT persistent. And after reading the other reports on here i never will pick up I just turned my call blocker on them
Called my business number and asked for a guy that's been dead for over 4 years. When I told them that fact some guy with a middle eastern accent told me I was lying and would go to jail. I hung and called the police. They gave me the number for the consumer protection agency in my state. I emailed them with the info. The state responded to me. They crossed the ph. # to an allied collection company or allied international. Per the state these people operate from out of the country collecting very old debts. The state has had a lot of complaints about them, but they can't do anything because the operate from outside the usa.

These fools have been calling for over a week a couple of times a day. They leave no messages. I finally decided to answer and tell them not to call anymore. Some guy with a strong accent, maybe Indian?, asked for someone who I have never heard of and told me he was from Allied Interstate. I told him there was no one at this number with that name. He then said that I was lying and they were going to sue me? I turned them into the State under the Consumer Protection Act. The State employee who helped me on the phone said that they had a lot of complaints regarding Allied Interstate. Problem is they operate out of the country from India or Pakistan. They have no license or legal right to collect any debt in the USA. If they call you tell them to pound sand and then turn them into your State Consumer Protection Agency.

Pause when answering and someone with a thick Indian accent asked for "Sharron" then hung up when I said no one was here by that name.
Asked for a guy by name who I haven't seen since 1994 (and last I heard that guy was doing 20 years in Georgia). I told them they got the wrong number.
I called this # after they called at 8:32am. They've been calling every day for about a week. Routed immediately to India. Said they took me off the call list since they were looking for another person whose name they gave me. She was able to pull up my phone # & name associated with that number immediately. This is a new phone # for us so probably some residual collections from previous person who had this # is my guess. But maybe not...would they really outsource collections to India? Maybe telemarketing call??? We'll see if we get taken off the list.
These morons are from "Allied" something or another. Kept asking for me by name; but I refused to acknowledge it was me. Finally, I played their game to see what it was about. A (DISPUTED) debt from 2006 - that's SEVEN YEARS old. I was sued by two other sewer rats who "bought" the debt; and BOTH of them LOST.
In THIS case, I advised the caller of that, AND that the (PA) Statute of Limitations is FIVE years; AND that it was also a VIOLATION of the Consumer Protection Act (PA and Federal) to call anyone AT THEIR PLACE OF WORK.
The scum stated, "Okay, I will make note dat you refuse to pay this legitimate debt." Such IDIOTS ... going to court with them would be FUN as I could then get it into the record they called my place of employment, along with the statute of limitations issue. ROFLMAO

this guy asked my for my name, was rude to me when I asked for his and who he represented, so i hung up on him. Sounds like a scam-er.
called 2 times within 5 minutes however would speak when we answered, just background noise like a call center and breathing. creepy

Agreed. Definately a collections agency. They asked for someone with a different first name and same last name.
An obvious call center employee came on the line and immediately announced that the call would be recorded and then asked for someone by name. Likely a collection agency.
