Original Complaint against American Lifeline Industries published at Scamity.com on 27-Oct-14 says, verbatim –

American Lifeline Industries contacted me last week about my “overdue account for light bulbs” and said that the cost and fees was now $255. I said that I had been through this before with a different collection agency for the same thing and that I knew that I had not “forgotten” to pay for them so many times. The other agency was A-1 Services, and I did pay them three or four times because I did not want to ruin my credit. I admit that I could have forgotten to pay once, maybe twice, but not four or now five times. | I probably did talk to someone who phoned asking me to order something but refused. So what is to prevent them from writing out the order and marking it as sent? Then they wait at least 2 years {supposedly they have to wait} and call saying that you owe big. When I said that if they were that concerned with collecting from me why not send an invoice or call me. She then listed the dates that they had called me about the debt—I never got any call about a debt. I did get calls asking me to buy something during that 2 or 3 year period, but I had finally wised up and refused anything. I also had been keeping any invoice or record of any purchase. BUT, how can I prove a negative? I did not place an order on December 29, 2011. I probably was out of town, or if not, I would not have placed an expensive order for light bulbs right after Christmas. | I may have talked to someone then, or they got my answering maching and decided they needed to place an order anyway! It really burns me up, because I thought I was helping someone in need, and they turn around and perpetrate a scam. I have paid for more than I ever ordered because I thought I was helping myself get out of it. Probably then they just figure they have a softie and do it again and again. | Before I went online and discovered that bringing up their website led me straight here I had decided that when they call back later this week, I would tell them I am not paying and that I will contact the Attorney General about this. And I will be told that they will go forward with collection and she can’t do anything about the situation because it is all there in black and white. Well, this time I don’t care! |
