Is Alpine Credit Inc. a scam?
They’re legit. Alpine Credit Inc. has been in the collections business for 5 years. The company was originally started on April 2nd, 2015 and opened its Better Business Bureau account on December 20th, 1995. Alpine Credit 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 Alpine Credit may be in violation of the FDCPA. While it is important that you do not ignore the need to resolve your alleged debt with Alpine Credit, 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, Alpine Credit explains that, “In January 2016, Allegiant Receivables Solutions, Inc. merged with Alpine Credit, Inc., a premier leader in the Colorado Collection industry since 1992. The combined companies now offer each of our clients truly unparralled performance and service by utilizing our proven philosphies and techniques and by always putting our clients first”. Therefore, the debt owed to Alpine Credit could have also been due to an account with Allegiant Receivables Solutions. The collections company additionally claims that the company’s mission statement is, “To effect the prompt recovery of our clients’ accounts receivable by utilizing professional, proven methods with cutting edge technology to ensure unparalleled performance, treating consumers with the respect they deserve to preserve, honor our client’s reputation in their profession and community”.

Unlawful Debt Harassment? Learn the Law & Sue the Collector.
Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Alpine Credit Inc.?
Absolutely. You can sue a debt collector. Here is a sample complaint:
A complainant was having issues with Alpine Credit Inc legally verifying 4 collection accounts. The complainant has attempted to contact Alpine Credit to ask for validation of these 4 credit accounts. The complainant never received any response both times that these request letters were sent. It was after these failed attempts at contacting the company that the complainant then sent another letter asking to settle all four of the accounts and again never received a response. The letters were all sent to the same address that was posted on both the BBB, Equifax, and Google. The complainant is having a hard time finding reason to pay this debt off, and confirm it as their own considering the collections company will not even verify the debt. The complainant firmly believes that, “Now it is illegal to attempt to collect on a debt that is not verified, even though the consumer demanded validation on the alleged debt”.
