Reliant Support Services and the 11-REL 2011 Debt Reduction Plan Mailer – Let’s Play Another Round of Do They Comply!

For a while we’ve been playing our little game of “Do They Comply” where we review marketing material from debt relief companies to see if it looks acceptable to you.

A tipster (send in your tips here) sent in the following mailer and said:

My brother got this and we called the company. They said their name was Reliant Support Services. They alo said they were a TASC Member, whatever that means. This seemed to be very deceptive and Reliant doesn’t even do the work. The company that does the work is a law firm called Bay View. Seemes to good to be true.

Reliant Support Services and the 11 REL 2011 Debt Reduction Plan Mailer   Lets Play Another Round of Do They Comply!

The mailer looks very familiar to those of us that have followed the debt settlement world over the past few years. The wording however is slightly different.

The official looking program promoted is the 11-RFL Credit Card Balance Reduction Opportunity and the mailer makes mention of the 2011 Debt Reduction Plan. People are told to call 888-593-9424.

The pending benefits mentioned are:

  • Immediate Reduction of Payments
  • Reduce Credit Card Debt in as Little as 24 Months
  • Avoid Bankruptcy in Some Cases
  • Reduce Interest Rates from Enrollment Start Date
  • Enjoy One Convenient Monthly Payment
  • Avoid Over Limit and Late Fees
  • Reduce Harassing Creditor Calls

One interesting note, if you look at the fine print it says this program is available in all states and “Company may be generating leads for national law firm.”

So what is your opinion, does this mailer pass the sniff test and seem fine to you or do you think the Federal Trade Commission might find this deceptive and not complaint with marketing rules?

    I agree, much of the advertising material I see is not compliant with even basic state regulations. Just take a look at the mailer I wrote about this morning and you’ll see that even though they refer people to a law firm there is no disclosure on the document at all. Well that and they fact the marketing message was pretty much all BS anyway. See this article.

    I’d love your thoughts on that mailer.

    If theyre marketing for a law firm, the ABA has rules stating they need to disclose that it is an advert in BOLD RED letters & for whom the law firm is… I think the problem is there are no “national” law firms- Simply state law firms with attorneys either contracted in other states or licensed in other states. If I was a Bayview attorney, I would be very unhappy about this. The claims being made are grounds (in my humble opinion) for disbarment.
