What kind of Complaints do AAA have against them?
There have been numerous egregious complaints against AAA and how they go about collecting on the debts. Consumers and customers have all attested to the harassing debt collectors using threatening and abusive language, as well as threatening physical livelihood of the debtor.
Through the BBB's website, some complaints have noted emails and mail that contain improper and misinformation about bills or outstanding accounts. They have also been given the run-around by the debt collectors, making it difficult to even pay the debt off in the first place.

There has also been complaints lodged against AAA containing complaints that AAA were threatening to release personal information and identities to improper companies and agencies if the debt was not paid. This harassment was even done to consumers that did not have any outstanding debts or bills to pay, that were then bullied into paying through various means of negative and abusive language.
How do I know if I have been Harassed by AAA Collections?
If you feel like you have suffered from AAA Collections harassment, know that there are many options out there for you.
The first step to the options is to understand that much of what AAA Collections has done could be illegal, and infringes upon the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA for short. The FDCPA is a set of federal laws that regulates and monitors the behaviors of debt collection agencies. These laws maintain that a debt collection agency may not use threatening or abusive language when engaging in conversation with you; they may not harass or berate you through various means; and they may not use false or misleading information in an attempt to gather and collect on a debt.
Many of the examples of complaints that have been filed against AAA directly conflict with the FDCPA. For instance, if you have been receiving constant calls and letters with regard to a debt even though you have specifically requested to not have it done, then the practice they are performing may fall under the title of harassment. If the harassment from the debt collectors involves you being told misleading and false information about a debt, that would also fall under the FDCPA regulations and laws.
