What kind of complaints does Alliance CAS, LLC have against them?
Alliance CAS, LLC maintains a ‘B-‘ BBB rating. It has received five BBB consumer complaints and eight Consumer Financial Protection Bureau complaints in its short time in business. Most complaints appear to regard collection attempts on legitimate debts where the amount of the debt is inaccurate or where the collector added on its own fees and interest. If true, these are great examples of Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act violations. In a couple of cases, Alliance CAS, LLC allegedly attempted to seize property without first informing the debtor of the collection attempt or giving the debtor the opportunity to defend against the collection. All of these practices are unlawful under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and could entitle you to $1,000 per violation, as well as other state and federal remedies.

It is illegal under the FDCPA for a debt collector to attempt collection on an amount more than you owe, which appears to be a somewhat common practice for Alliance CAS, LLC. It is also unlawful under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act for a collector to make other false statements about the amount or the nature of the debt (e.g., tacking on their own fee and calling it ‘interest’) or about the actions they intend to take, such as threatening legal action over bad debt.
