Complaints against Affiliate Asset Solutions commonly cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts and allegations of aggressive and potentially illegal communication tactics. In February 2018, a complainant indicated she had received “harassing, repeated calls with RUDE, IGNORANT agents despite telling them NOT TO CALL HER AGAIN!” She stated that she had been receiving “repeated phone calls from this company almost daily… and has the phone records to prove it.” She said that she had “asked their agents NOT to call her again, and their continuance in this behavior constitutes HARASSMENT!” She stated that she recognized that AAS is a collection agency but insists that she had “absolutely NO IDEA what they are trying to collect on, for which account, or for which company…because the people who have called her from this company excel in IGNORANCE, BELLIGERENCE and HOSTILITY” and do not “know HOW to appropriately communicate intelligently with people.” The complainant stated that she is “a professional person”; that she “understands how to conduct collections”; and that AAS representatives have not upheld standards. She concluded by stating that she was amazed that AAS “has such a high rating with…BBB, …which makes her question the veracity of … BBB. Nonetheless, … she filed this complaint in an effort to utilize a progressive response to AAS’s constant harassment.”
In response, Affiliate Asset Solutions stated that their “records show only one oral communication with the consumer…who notified AAS at that time …to cease and desist communication with her.” AAS said they had “abided by that request.” AAS acknowledged that their “review of that recording, and their agent’s response to the consumer’s aggressiveness, was not up to their standards. Consequently, AAS counseled… and reprimanded the agent in accordance with their Quality/Compliance and HR policies. AAS apologized to the consumer and promised to renew their pledge to be the most patient-centric and consumer-centric receivables management organization in the world.”

“Thank you Lemberg Law!!! Harassed non-stop by rude collectors. My attorney was speedy and polite, really knew what she was doing. They took my call, asked what was going on, never interrupted, and were extremely patient. I knew what was going on every step of the way. They got the calls to stop and sent me a check in the mail as promised. I even paid off my debt with the settlement! Ha!.”
