Is ALW Sourcing LLC a scam?
They’re legit. ALW Sourcing LLC can be considered a legitimate collections company due to the fact that it has been in business for 13 years, has received an “A+” rating from the Better Business Bureau, and has also been BBB accredited. Therefore, it is unwise to ignore the need to resolve your debt and write off this collections company as a scam.
ALW Sourcing LLC is a collections company that “is an African-American owned and operated collections, and customer contact solutions business.” The company cites on their website that ALW Sourcing LLC is a Certified Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE), and as previously noted, a member of the Better Business Bureau. Though ALW Sourcing LLC boasts about exceeding “customer care performance goals” on their website, the company allegedly has left consumers in the dust whilst pursuing this goal, ignoring their responsibility of following the FDCPA. Additionally, according to the BBB, the leadership of the collections company is headed by Mr. Bill Allen, CEO. Lastly, According to Zoominfo.com, ALW Souring LLC has a total of 7 employees and revenue of $17 million.
Who does ALW Sourcing LLC collect for?
ALW Sourcing LLC explains on their website that they provide a variety of services, including, “Collections, Consumer Collections, First-Party, Third-Party, MBE Second Tier Outsource, Small Business Collections, Customer Service Contact, and Customer Service Communications.” The company additionally claims that their full service collections process involves “Automated Skip Tracing, Letter Services, Credit Reporting, Predictive Dialer Platforms, and Account Scrub for Correct Information or Bankruptcies.”
Ultimately, ALW Sourcing provides information on their specific services, but does not note which specific area of collections that they specialize in, or which clientele they work for. Due to this lack of clarity, it is incredibly important that as a consumer you choose to contact the collections company to verify and attain details on your alleged debt. Acquiring this information is important because due to the outsourcing of debt, one collection account can turn into many reporting on your credit file if the debt is not dealt with.

A collections company would only choose to sue you or garnish your wages given that they can validate your debt, as it is illegal for ALW Sourcing LLC to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. Moreover, ALW Sourcing LLC can choose to sue or garnish wages after a default judgement. This choice verifies that a collection company would likely choose not to sue you for unvalidated debt. However, it is the smartest option to preemptively contact an attorney to ensure the safety of your assets and rights. Lemberg Law awards consumers the power to fight back against these fraudulent collection practices. Need Help? Call us today.
