Sub: #1 They are whats wrong with this countryMon, 10/01/2012 - 09:44



I assume you may have gone to the same school that I did. They went out of business. I never received a bill from the school. This was in 2004. 7 years later (Passed the SOL) they want to collect. Ron from Avante is about to become a personal friend of mine. When he calls me im going to vent to him all of my problems. Im going to ask him how hes doing, and all of that. Im going to get to know him.

He left me a voice mail saying "Talk to me" and then at the end "Good luck".

I Always miss the calls. So they leave me voicemails. The school is on my credit report with a balance of $0... Ron do you see this? Balance is $0. Why are you trying to collect $8,000 from me.

Oh another thing which I found hilarious is that they sent me a settlement offer... Full balance is allegedly $8430 (or something like that) They sent me a great settlement offer... of.... thats right $8430. What a deal! Too bad I missed the deadline, considering it was 3 days before i received the letter. Such as shame that these people are unorganized.

Ron, if you call me again, im just going to make you my therapist. I will play music for you. We can talk about sports, politics. Whatever you want. My phone line is your phone line. I should add you to my family plan so that way you do waste my minutes.

Sub: #2 Sent a letter to cease calls...still callingThu, 07/12/2012 - 10:50



I had to file bankruptcy, due to overwhelming medical bills. I called them back and gave them my case number and my lawyers phone number. Sent them a certified letter. Finally, my lawyer had to sue them for breaking numerous laws. They are still calling me. Have to go back to the lawyer and really make sure they stop. They call my Father, Grandmother, Brother, and Uncle. They are literally harassing my entire family. Dirt Bags!:mad:

Sub: #4 Avante sent a letter for my husband to my grandmother. It was stMon, 01/24/2011 - 18:56



Avante sent a letter for my husband to my grandmother. It was stating that he owes over 800 bucks for some career. CEC debt or something. We do not owe anything in that amount. All my husbands student loans have been consolidated and we have been paying it off. The letter states that this is the final attempt. We have never seen anything from them. Also it has my husbands social security number as the account number and it doesn't x out the first half, it states his whole number. And the only forms of payment they accept are cashiers check or money order. This screams scam to me. We are reporting them so that this does not end up on our credit.

They do find companies that are out of business or look for info about debts that have been paid. They must have someone inside these companies giving them information. My daughter had a $25 overdraft that she corrected the next day and the bank says everything is OK, but these crooks still call my house. She's never lived here!

When you get the AG to send them a cease and decist letter, they pass it on to another company and it starts again.

What a bunch of slime balls!


Sub: #6 Once you settle the debts, you're not responsible to pay off theTue, 01/04/2011 - 01:56



Once you settle the debts, you're not responsible to pay off the dues in full. You went for debt settlement as you were unable to pay off your dues in full. I guess the collection agency is trying to scam you. You can ask your attorney to know what legal actions you can take against the collection agency.

Sub: #7 I have been receiving calls from them regarding a debt to a schoMon, 01/03/2011 - 14:48



I have been receiving calls from them regarding a debt to a school which I had paid to another collection agency. When sent them proof of payment, they said that I still owed a balance because it wasn't paid in full, just settled. I never received a settlement letter, just a zero balance letter showing my payment. This is a scam I believe. I am in contact with the school and my lawyer and I have sent them a letter stating I want something proving I owe this money. I had never even received a letter, just calls on my cell phone. Well, they will hear from my lawyer if necessary. If you have your old credit card statements it would show that your account is paid as well.
