Debt Referral Program Address in Frisco Texas is a UPS Store

By on March 13, 2017

An amazing reader, Tiffani, sent in a new debt relief mailer through my I Buy Junk Mail program.

Tiffani received the mailer above from Debt Referral Program, 105 E. San Antonio Avenue, El Paso, Texas. That address also happens to be the address of The UPS Store. – Source

The State of Texas says no company named Debt Referral Program is registered to do business in the state.

Clearly we are not off to a good start on the mailer Tiffani received.

Another concerning issue are the claims made in the mailer. The Federal Trade Commission just ended a suit against United Debt Counselors in Frisco Texas who was also sending out a debt relief mailer. In that case the FTC said, “According to the FTC’s complaint, United Debt Counselors LLC exaggerated how much money people would save using its services. The company’s direct mail ads, which reached up to 100,000 consumers per week, looked like official documents from a bank or attorney, and claimed that typical customers would have their credit card debt cut in half and become debt-free within 36 months.”

The fine print on this mailer seems to indicate this mailer is an advertisement designed to get consumers to call in and then refer them to some party.

I would recommend that anyone considering using such a company should read the following free guides.

    My boss just received this, with an address of the UPS Store in Houston Texas on it. We thought it was really weird that it said it was a second notice when we’d never received a first notice. After a little googling, the letter went into the shredder.

    Hi Mr. Rhode,
    Thank you. I appreciate and respect your opinion. I received one of the Department of Negotiations letters out of Frisco, TX. The wording in the letter was almost threatening, listing the consequences of my **Failure To Call**. And directing me to “CONTACT OUR OFFICES”. It arrived in an envelope with no return address, an American eagle, and in big black bold letters DO NOT DESTROY. This should be illegal. Had my 95 year old Mother received this she would have thought it was official government business and she would have responded as directed. I plan on issuing a formal complaint about this company’s practices. Please continue to keep us informed. Thanks again, Cheryl Shaffer
