Founded in 1936, Afni Collection Agency got its’ start in Bloomington, Illinois under the name H.A. Slaven’s Collection Bureau.  In 1976, the company was purchased by Earl Anderson who changed the name of the company to Anderson Financial Network, Inc.  9 years later, in 1985, Anderson was joined by Bruce Griffin as new general manager, and the two began opening satellite offices for the collection agency around the entire country. All of the satellite offices reported to one central main office, which was located in Bloomington, IL. The company was later renamed Afni, Inc to shorten its’ name from Anderson Financial Network, Inc.

Afni is a full service collection agency which means that they are not only a debt buyer, but also a third party debt servicer.

Afni Complaints

Afni has a history of complaints for everything from intimidation and harassment  to debt re-aging. The BBB has  closed over 900 complaints for Afni over the last 3 years. Although there have been several complaints against Afni’s collection procedures and billing practices, they have yet to be fined or punished by the federal government (FTC or the CFPB).

Afni typically handles a lot of accounts for local towns, counties, and states. (Collections for parking/speeding tickets, toll violations, unpaid fines). Afni even handles collections for the IRS.

Knowing all of that, it’s not very difficult to see why the federal government has yet to act on any of the thousands of complaints to state attorney general offices.
