Is Alliant Capital Management a scam?
They’re legit. Alliant Capital Management has been in the collections business for 7 years. The company was originally started on June 27th, 2013 and opened its Better Business Bureau account on September 26th, 2013. Alliant Capital Management has not been accredited by the BBB, however the company has received an “A+” rating from the BBB. Due to the company’s years of experience, and its extraordinary rating, it is easy to see that Alliant Capital Management is not a scam. Therefore, the debt which you may have been contacted about is real, and needs to be dealt with. Though it is necessary to resolve this discrepancy, it is still possible that Alliant Capital Management may be in violation of the FDCPA. Therefore, while it is important that you do not ignore the need to resolve your alleged debt with Alliant Capital Management, as this could potentially harm your credit and ability to take out future loans, be wary of any suspicious activity where the company could potentially be violating the FDCPA.
Alliant Capital Management claims to have 50 years of collections experience on their website. The company also states its mission, “To provide affordable debt collection services to creditors while providing consumers with the best possible experience. To guide our clients and consumers to amicable account resolutions that result in growth for our clients and financial wellness for our consumers”. Contrary to this statement, many debtors feel as though they have not received “the best possible experience” from this collections company. Be sure to contact an attorney preemptively if you find that Alliant Capital Management has failed to meet this promise. Alliant Capital Management also states that their collections company is SSAE18 / SOC1 certified and is a member of ACA International.

Who does Alliant Capital Management collect for?
Alliant Capital Management writes on its website that their company, “is experienced in assisting creditors with managing delinquent and non-performing accounts”.

Can Alliant Capital Management Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
It is illegal for collections companies to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is not likely that a collections company will sue if they cannot verify your debt or you may not owe said debt. On the other hand, however, Alliant Capital Management can still summon debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. If you find that Alliant Capital Management has violated the FDCPA, and/or they are trying to take you to court, the wisest course of action would be to hire legal aid. Contact an attorney preemptively to ensure the safety of your assets and rights. Lemberg Law has helped thousands of consumers fight back against these cases of fraudulent collection practices.

A complainant took out a small loan several years ago to deal with settling a divorce matter. Due to personal struggles and hardships the complainant was unable to satisfy paying off this debt in a timely manner. Eventually this payment, “went to collections, and then was purged”. The complainant later set up a payment plan where they agreed to, “pay $178 per month to try to resolve the debt”. The complainant later found that the collections company, Alliant Capital Management, had allegedly been autodrafting an amount of $209 per month for a year or so. The complainant claimed at this point that they, “already paid back way more than they initially borrowed”. After losing work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the complainant sent Alliant Capital Management an email, “asking that they stop auto drafting the account until the complainant can get straightened out and in a better situation”. The collections company still continued to take payments, when the complainant could barely afford to pay for daily necessities. Because the collections company would not stop taking money from the complainant, they chose to, “open a new bank account and stopped providing payments to them”. Now the collections company is, “constantly blowing up the complainant’s phone, using local numbers, and then leaving messages from people with fake extensions”. When the complainant attempted to call the company back, they were sent to an answering machine. The collections company was also allegedly calling the complainant’s ex-husband’s phone, and harassing the complainant. Because the complainant claims that they have paid back more than they originally borrowed, they are asking that these calls cease.
