Is Alltran Education Inc. a scam?
They’re legit. Alltran Education has been in the collections business for 32 years. The company was originally started on August 3rd, 1988 and opened its Better Business Bureau account on July 15th, 1992. Alltran Education has not been accredited by the BBB, however it has received an “A+” rating from the BBB. Due to the company’s years in service and its outstanding rating from the BBB, it is clear that this business 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 Alltran Education may be in violation of the FDCPA. While it is important that you do not ignore the need to resolve your alleged debt with Alltran Education, 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.
According to the collection company’s website, Alltran Education argues that, ” We passionately believe there’s a better way to help people solve their financial issues, and we work every day not only to achieve, but to find even better ways to succeed”. The collections company additionally claims that the company is collaborative, honorable and focused. The company also explains how they accomplish their purpose, writing, “We create and foster a culture of problem solvers, who employ empathy and respect. We modernize technology and communications across the revenue cycle”. Some complainants feel as though they have not been treated with this promised respect.
Lastly, there is no information currently available about the size or revenue of the company. The leadership of Alltran Education according to the BBB consists of Executive Assistant Alicia LeBron, Director of Compliance Bert Coley, and COO Sean Dickson.
Who does Alltran Education Inc. collect for?
Alltran Education writes on its website that their company collects on debt from financial services, higher education, and government.

Therefore, it is likely that your debt with Alltran Education lies within one of these areas of collection mentioned on the company’s website.

Unlawful Debt Harassment? Learn the Law & Sue the Collector.
Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Alltran Education Inc.?
Absolutely. You can sue a debt collector. Here is a sample complaint:
A complainant agreed to pay their student loan debt off in full but Alltran refused to provide proof of the specific amount owed. The complainant would like to know the specific amount that the Department of Education will settle for. Without this information, the complainant does not feel comfortable handing over large sums of money, because they cannot confirm that it will legitimately pay off the debt. The complainant claims that, “Each inquiry to provide this proof has resulted in them claiming I only can have proof after making a payment”. The complainant also claims that, “Any responsible consumer prefers to see a contract before making a payment such as this”. The complainant ultimately would like to see this necessary information before sharing sensitive information over the internet and sending large amounts of money.
