Arington Associates

We were contacted by a woman claiming to be with Allied Delivery services, concerning legal mail that they had for delivery. We were asked to call an 866 # and ask for File # —–, to get more information. She was just the delivery service and did not know anything about the paperwork. When we called the number, we were connected with a Derrek ********, with Arington & Associates. He stated that he was taking us to court for an old debt. This was a legitimate debt, from years back. We had the option to settle out of court, with the following options 1. a one time payment of $2711 2. $3200 made in 8 payments of $400 or 3. $3800 – 19 payments of $200. Each time he would place us on hold and consult counsel. He e-mailed us an offer of settlement letter and wanted the funds paid by debit or credit. When we refused to make payment that way, he redid the settlement letter and directed us to use a cashiers check made payable to Blue Mountain Continental, 4400 NE 77th Ave, Suite 275, Vancouver, WA 98662 The settlement letter did not include an address under the company name, I googled Arington & Assoc and nothing came up in Kansas City, MO, but Derrek Arington came up, with his home address and 5 different cell numbers. Hmmm. Then I found this other report on BBB. Suspicion confirmed.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on, it is strongly advised to avoid Arington Associates in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Arington Associates. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Arington Associates is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
