That ADO you are referring to got demote yet again to DM now. over the same area. Sure glad out of that good ole boy network too...
I agree I sure hated giving up almost 30 years, but never been happier and healthier in my life. The good old boy network cost alot of people their jobs all because good people wouldn't put up with the BS. It was all over St. Louis, Chicago, Evansville and as long as those running the company now it will continue.

I agree. There are (were) even Sr Management that knew but turned the shoulder to those activities because of the numbers. You could screw your employees, go out drinking and driving, heck even drink on the job and still get away with it, as long as you were connected or put up the numbers.

Mike Kearns (a very likeable and good dude who hired me back when we were still Manufacturers Hanover Consumer Services - a great company to get your start in finance - he was an old CIT dude as was Al - I learned tons from those guys) probably had the good sense and wisdom to get out years ago. Frank Reed probably said adios too.

Explaining why it is a good idea to take out a loan with AGF/SPRINGLEAF is like explaining why it is a good idea to buy furniture or appliances through Rent-A-Center: The costs just don’t add up.
AGF/SPRINGLEAF will claim that sending them a Cease and Desist letter is ALWAYS a bad idea, but there are definitely situations where it is necessary to do so. My posts regarding this always state that you can still be sued, and I have never claimed someone should not pay their bills. However, they continually try to distort the truth by claiming that I have. One should consider the true reasons why AGF/SPRINGLEAF doesn’t want to be sent these letters.
AGF/SPRINGLEAF wants to be in their debtor’s ear as much as possible, not merely to get them to pay their bills, but to sell them as much debt as possible, no matter how unwise it is. They seek to keep people as uninformed and in-the-dark about their rights as possible. There are good reasons why the Fair Debt Act was passed, and their company has a horrible track record with so many who have worked for them as well.Look at the rude, insulting comments being made on this public website by current AGF/SPRINGLEAF employees posing as laid-off or fired employees and ask yourself if these are the kinds of people you want to be indebted to.
AGF/SPRINGLEAF often solicits people for additional loans that are not within their best financial interestsThese people are not deadbeats, yet AGF/SPRINGLEAF lies to them in order to make them vulnerable to their sales tactics. Not all businesses do these kinds of things. These people have a right to use the Fair Debt Act to get AGF/SPRINGLEAF o leave them alone.
According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Consumers being harassed by creditors must cease to do so after being contacted by certified mail by the debtor indicating their desire to only be contacted by mail.If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received.Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt, however.

I think that if the parent company or even the highest up at AGF back in the day new what was going on, they would have cleaned house. I figured when AIG bought them, they would but now we see they had their own problems.

Maybe the new CEO wont be fooled by Borchers, McClellan and company. A lot of things went unnoticed while Rick was in charge. I hope nobody else loses their job, but I'd getting my resume ready cause liquidation could be in the next business news flash from Evansville.
