I just took a call from 866-435-1646. The east indian identified himself as a rep. of Allied Interstate and that this call was an attempt at collecting on a debt. that my significant other owed. He asked to verify our address and I provided the number and street which didn't match what he had. The address he had, my partner had moved from in 1995.
Partner wasn't avail. so I collected the name address acct. number and amount, $130.90, supposedly owed as well as the creditor that they were collecting for, which he identified as Franklin Mint. I asked what had been purchased and when and he told me they didn't have that information. the address was P.O. box 3761774 Columbus, Ohio 43236.
In closing I told him that after checking the internet to be sure this wasn't an attempt to scam us out of $130.90 he could anticipate payment and ended the call.
Thank you to all of you who have posted your experiences with these -scammer ***-persons. Right now, after having a knee replaced, $130.90 is an awful lot of money saved with your help.
