I have dealt with them on my defaulted student loans and quite frankly, yes -- they suck.
In my experience with Allied Interstate, do not take anything for granted. Whatever you were going to mail them, make 5 or 6 originals of the same letter, and mail a separate one to every address for them you can find. Of course be sure your letters are sig required, etc, etc.
If you are dealing with them on a defaulted student loan and they are not cooperating or being reasonable, I highly recommend you cease all verbal contact with them and immediately contact the Ombudsman. They (the Ombudsman's office) were firm but fair with me, and without their help, my loan would have never gotten out of rehabilitation. Allied never would agree to any rehabilitation arrangement I offered, so the Ombudsman intervened and as long as I did my part, everything went through.
Best of luck!
**** Edit 3/12/12 -- just noticed the OP was years ago...sorry about dredging this thread back up, but I think my advice still stands for anyone else dealing with Allied****
