What kind of complaints does Allied National, Inc. have against them?
Allied National, Inc. maintains an A+ BBB rating. It has not received any BBB consumer complaints but has received one Consumer Financial Protection Bureau complaint. The complaint was from a creditor rather than from a consumer and concerned the collector's failure to forward collected payment to the creditor holding the original debt. While failure to forward creditor payments in a timely manner is not terribly concerning or uncommon in itself, the collections agency in this case played a lot of games with the creditor to avoid making the payment it knew was due, including avoiding the creditor's calls, claiming the creditor moved offices, and finally claiming the payment was stalled due to issues with the bank.
Are Allied National, Inc.'s Practices Legal?
Among other practices, it is strictly unlawful for a collections agency like Allied National, Inc. to make any false or threatening statements in connection with an attempt to collect on a consumer debt.
