CAUTION!! Avante is NOTORIOUS for NOT being licensed & bonded to collect debts in various states. Before sending off your letter, be sure to check & see if they are in fact licensed & bonded (if your state requires that). If they are not, add that info to your letter. Add something like, "Despite that fact that you are not licensed or bonded to collect debts in (state), I am sending this letter to protect my rights. You have been reported to the Department of Commerce in (State)."

You can check if they are licensed by going to your state's Secretary of State website. Also, a quick google search will tell you if your state requires licensing. Hope this helps.

I worked for this company a couple of years ago and I can tell you that as a company they do, in fact, try to follow all the rules and work with people on their debts. Some of their collectors are inexperienced and believe that the best way to make debt collection calls is to threaten and talk down to people and that is unfortunate. If you have a problem with the way you are being treated my suggestion is to ask to speak with one of the managers and explain your situation to them. Jeremy Moore is the manager over all of the collectors and is always willing to listen and help.

My newphew went to Ballys just as a visitors and wound up getting harrassed by Avanti by a Mr.Williams which keeps telling him he owes Bally for the contract he signed and he did not sign any contract with them all he did was to attend the courtesy for the week Bally had given him and signed the week notice they require. We are not going to be harrassed at home because of Avante USA trying to collecto on some person who ever that maybe get your information correct IDOITS!!! Because you are not collecting one Penny I'm reporting you to the BBB.

Be aware that under Privacy laws they cannot be repeating your husbands SSN#. They can get fined big time for that. You can probably google Personal Identifiable Information laws to learn more about that. Also contact you state District Attorney's office and the BBB to report they are using your Husbands SSN during calls repeatedly.
