Are Allied Data Corporation's Practices Legal?
It is against federal debt collection regulations to engage in certain annoying and unkind acts in furtherance of pursuing repayment of a debt, including: calling before 8:00AM or after 9:00PM, calling repeatedly or even just a few times per week (no matter how many different phone numbers they use), calling your place of work if you are not permitted personal calls, calling you after you have made an unmistakable request for them to stop calling, using profanity or other threatening language, and other intimidating actions. It is also unlawful for collectors to misrepresents who they are and what the purpose of their communication is, as well as for them to attempt collection on an amount more than you owe or to collect from someone who is not legally responsible for the debt. These actions, each and all, amount to collector harassment, and you have the right to be free of this behavior.
Depending on whether Allied Data Corporation is aware that it is attempting collection on a debt already paid, the mere act of sending a letter or making a collections call could constitute collector harassment and entire you to damages under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
