What is the Government Monitored Debt Relief Program?

The Answer

Dear James,

It is not a legit program. There is no such government program and it is simply a marketing pitch to get you to agree to some program to separate you from your money.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.

Big Hug!

    I am a single female just a few years away from retirement age. I am in debt all toll for 25,000 dollars. My credit cards are maxed out. My interest rates are high. My question is are there any trustworthy, reliable debt consolidation agencies out there. Right now I am contiplating bankrupcy as a solution to my financial problem, but only as a last resort. I am a responsible person and know that this is my own doing. I just need some help dealing with this debt. I hope you can advise me on the best way to handle this problem.

    No, this is not a government agency! Most of these (including mine) all have the same info and say you may be eligible for a debt relief program through a non-profit ’501c3′ program. the ’501c’ just designates that it’s non-profit, and the number, in this case (3) designates the type of non-profit. This one being religious/educational/charitible, etc. In addition, these non-profits are both state and federal tax exempt.

    Debt relief programs are designed specifically for people who can no longer afford their minimum monthly payments.

  • SeanDSLegalPlan

    Just because it is a non- profit does not make it “legit” Jack. There are MANY “non-profit” consumer credit counseling companies that are awful and that have hurt consumers. There are legitimate ones too, however there are NO government programs for consumer debt relief on credit cards and unsecured debt. Any marketing company that uses that PLOY is violating federal law. They can not claim to be associated with the government, or government backed. It may connect you to a real company but would you really trust your finances to a company that lies to you in order to scare or con you into reaching back to them?

    I too recieved the debt relief letter I was curious because it looks like it actually came from the White House. Though my debt is soooo much higher then they estimated one would think the Gov would know that. Thank you for saving me the hassel of checking it out. SAM

  • C. Esters

    so were they able to reduce your interest rate? If so, then it would be worth investigating further

  • Jack D.

    No I actually participated in this. Its really non profit credit counseling. Its legit if you have high interest rates.

    Thank you so much for these posts and webpage…I too got a letter and with it being sent 1st class mail I “assumed” it was a legal company, so glad I took the time to research it on the internet.

    I read an e-mail in your website about this program (GMDR at 1101 Pennsylvania Ave NW 6th floor, Washington DC 20004, USA. Phone # 1-800-753-0376) and you mentioned that this is a scam. I also received a letter from this company. The letter said I have a $21,299 debt although my debt is nowhere near this level. I looked up the phone # with reverse phone look-up and the company who lists it is Integra Telecom.

    Toll Free Number Information for 1- 800 – 753 – 0376
    Company : Integra Telecom

    Integra Telecom looks like a good company.

    It deals with internet/communication and not debt relief.

    Maybe the phone look-up is wrong.

    I also think this GMDR is a scam but could you find out which company is behind this scam?
    Thank you,

    Therese
