Man Blogs Suing Allied Interstate For Jacking Up His Credit Report

One man is blogging about his suing of Allied Interstate in small claims court for jacking up his credit report.

“John Doe” says he’s suing the insurance company for failing to report his debt as disputed to the credit bureaus, and for reporting the debt without validating it.

His latest entry details his actual experience inside the courtroom and some of the things you will need to do to get your claim successfully processed.

    “1. Get a proper street address, you can’t sue a P.O. Box.
    2. Take either half or the entire day off of work.
    3. Have the process serving info with you in advance.
    4. Bring your checkbook and be ready to shell out about $200.”

He seems to be taking lessons from our post “HOW TO: Fight Companies Online And Win.” We’re all about the DIY here. It will be interesting to see what comes of his efforts. — BEN POPKEN

    You know how many times I had to read the first five words of that headline before I was able to parse it? Come on, guys, don’t do that to me before I’ve had enough coffee. How about something like “Man Blogs About Suing Allied Interstate…” ‘Cause, really, can one blog suing? OK, granted, part of the reason that headline appeared to be a sequence of randomly-chosen words probably has to do with the fact that I’ve never heard of Allied Interstate before, and in my universe, those words don’t tend to occur next to each other. But “man blogs suing?” For a while there I was trying to figure out what the hell a “man blog” was, and if it was related to either the man purse or manbearpig.

  2. I agree with pestie. Some of these headlines I need to read about five or six times before I can parse them as well. Dont mind me though. I’m just a reader.

    @pestie: What? It’s not that hard to understand… If that gets you then wait till you see this sentence: Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo. (Remember that Buffalo is a city, and “to buffalo” is a rare verb meaning to bully). :P

    @asherchang: You know, despite this reasonably good explanation, I still find myself unable to parse that sentence. Heh…
