Federal and state laws prohibit certain methods of debt collection, and require that we treat you fairly. You can stop us from contacting you by writing a letter to us that tells us to stop the contact. Sending such a letter does not make the debt go away if you owe it. Once we receive your letter, we may not contact you again, except to let you know that there won’t be any more contact or that we intend to take a specific action.

If you have a complaint about the way we are collecting this debt, please write to us at P.O. Box 4000, Warrenton, VA 20188, email us at advocacygroup@allied-interstate.com, or call us toll-free at 800-811-4214 between 9:00 A.M. Central Time and 5:00 P.M. Central Time Monday – Friday.

The Federal Trade Commission enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). If you have a complaint about the way we are collecting your debt, please contact the FTC online at www.ftc.gov; by phone at 877-FTC-HELP; or by mail at 600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20580.

We are required under state and local law to notify consumers of the following rights. This list does not contain a complete list of the rights consumers have under local, state and federal law.

CALIFORNIA: The state Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the federal Fair Debt Collection Practice Act require that, except under unusual circumstances, collectors may not contact you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. They may not harass you by using threats of violence or arrest or by using obscene language. Collectors may not use false or misleading statements or call you at work if they know or have reason to know that you may not receive personal calls at work. For the most part, collectors may not tell another person, other than your attorney or spouse, about your debt. Collectors may contact another person to confirm your location or enforce a judgment. For more information about debt collection activities, you may contact the Federal Trade Commission at 877-FTC-HELP or www.ftc.gov.

COLORADO: A consumer has the right to request in writing that a debt collector or collection agency cease further communication with the consumer. A written request to cease communication will not prohibit the debt collector or collection agency from taking any other action authorized by law to collect the debt. FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLORADO FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT, SEE WWW.COAG.GOV/CAR.
