Allied National Inc. 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 National Inc. 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 National Inc. 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 National Inc., 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.

Who does Allied National Inc. collect for?
Allied National Inc. writes on its website that their company’s nationwide network of agents and correspondents, “will conduct a comprehensive case evaluation to locate real estate holdings, banking relationships, employment, sources of income and revenue, and liquid assets”. Therefore, it is likely that your debt lies within one of these areas of collection mentioned on the Allied National Inc. 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.
