Is Allied Account Services a scam?
They’re legit. Allied Account Services has been in the collections business for 45 years. The company was originally started on January 1st, 1976 and opened its Better Business Bureau account on November 1st, 1985. Allied Account Services has been accredited by the BBB and has additionally received an “A+” rating from the BBB. Due to the company’s years of experience, its accreditation and its extraordinary rating, it is easy to see that Allied Account Services 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 Allied Account Services 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 Allied Account Services, 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.
Allied Account Services claims to have 40+ years of collections experience on their website. The company also states that Allied Account Services has industry experts, effective BPO solutions, and trust in their experience. Allied Account Services also states that their collections company is an active member of the ACA International and NYC Collectors Association. Additionally, Allied Account Services lists some of their strong suits as, “licensed and bonded, national and international coverage, customized programs and solutions, professionally trained collections staff, ability to customize reports according to client’s guidelines, and much more.
Lastly, in regard to the collection company’s size, the company has an employee base of 50 people and sales of $4.63 million (according to dnb.com). Dnb.com also notes that Allied Account Services is lead by Key Principal William D Mott.
Who does Allied Account Services collect for?
Allied Account Services writes on its website that their company serves higher education and utility businesses. They also list that they have experience in “other” types of collection which allegedly include municipalities, oil and alarm companies, credit unions, and self paid medical. The company additionally notes that they have served many colleges and universities including 3 of 8 Ivy League schools. Therefore, it is likely that your debt lies within one of these areas of collection mentioned on the Allied Account Services website. However, it is still important that as a consumer you confirm with the collections company about what debt is specifically owed and to whom. Inquiring as soon as possible is the smartest move to make, and if you feel as though this company has breached their FDCPA rights be sure to contact an attorney to help you file a lawsuit.

Can Allied Account Services 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, Allied Account Services can still summon debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. If you find that Allied Account Services 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.
