Thanks to an awesome tip, I received a mailer that is being sent out. This one was received by a Pennsylvania resident.
The mailer was sent out using a West Palm Beach, Florida mailing permit but it appears to come from a company called NFM, Inc. NFM was identified as NFM Lending. Apparently their name used to be National Fidelity Mortgage Corporation.
According to Maryland, NFM, Inc is located at 505 Progress Drive, Linthicum, MD 21090 and the registered agent at that address is Stephanie Bogan. – Source

I emailed Ms. Bogan yesterday and asked her if NFM was acting as a lead generator, affiliate or in any other referral relationship for debt settlement companies? Is the NFM mailer number published, 800-513-8770, answered by NFM staff or a call center.
As of the publication of this article she has not responded.
The mailer appears to be solely for a loan but as the tipster (send in your tips here) said, you may be pitched debt settlement services for a law firm. I called and I was. The law firm pitched was Legal Helpers Debt Resolution.
