Allied International Collections and
the Truth About Your Debt

Collections is a debt collection agency that has
purchased your debt account from the original creditor, often a bank
(or in some cases another debt collecting agency) for about 10 percent
or less of the original value and is brazenly attempting to recover
the full sum of the original from you.
Collections will use all sorts of nasty methods
to get you to set up a standing order in order to profit from your ignorance
of the law. You may have already experienced bad and terrifying experiences
of them. They may phone you at odd times and do this many times every
day. They may send you official-appearing sternly worded letters or
cards threatening to come round to collect the full amount or that they
will take you to court. Other tricks will include attempting to make
a charging order on your home or in some way cause you great personal
So ask Allied International
Collections for a copy of the original contract when you took out your
loan or credit card.

Data On Allied International Collections
My thanks to the excellent MoneySavingExpert
forums for these extracts:
I posted a thread on here a few weeks
ago regarding Allied International Collections. They are chasing me
for full outstanding payments for Tesco and Mint credit cards. They
said that I would have to pay it all by 30th April. It was impossible
for me to find £3300 within a month, so I begged and pleaded
for advice. It was unanimous that I shouldn't attempt to get another
loan, so I wrote to them recorded delivery asking for my CCA with
two cheques, one for each credit card. I since got a letter asking
why I had failed to pay up, I ignored this letter as I thought the
letters had crossed in the post. Yesterday I arrived home to find
two identical letters - Notification of Intended Visit. I rang up
and finally got through to somebody this afternoon, asking why I had
not yet received my CCA. He started shouting at me asking why I wanted
it - I said because I was entitled to it etc, and he just continued
to shout "Why, why why???" He refused to send it to me,
saying that they wouldn't give it to me and that I should try and
get it from the credit card companies. Surely I was right to ask Allied
International Collections for it?? Why won't they send it to me? He
accused me of biding time and ended the conversation with "see
you in court" before putting the phone down on me.
OUR COMMENTS: Characteristically nasty of them. The best thing to
do with Allied INternational Collections is NEVER to speak to them
on the phone. Always insist that they write to you.
you have any information that you would like honest people to know
about Allied International Collections then send us an email in complete
confidence and we will try to corroborate it with the clowns involved.
