Written by Steve Rhode

Question:

Dear Steve,

I went through a divorce and was left with about 20,000 dollars in credit card debt. I joined capitol consumer relief. I have been paying them about a year

They are now telling me to begin my credit restore process. Is this legit?

Answer:

Dear Inga,

I have no idea who Capitol Consumer Relief is and don’t think I’ve ever researched them before. But here is what I can tell you after a bit of quick research.

On the bottom of the website for capitolconsumerrelief.com it says “This website is an advertisement that provides consumer leads to debt resolution providers and law firms. The hiring of a law firm is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements. The retention of a client is subject to review.” – Source

They do not say where they are located on their website but the BBB lists their address as 1660 Hotel Circle N #616 San Diego, CA 92108. – Source

The State of California has no business registration for a company named Capitol Consumer Relief.

The address listed for Capitol Consumer Relief in San Diego comes back to a company named Reliance Solutions. – Source

Reliance Solutions describes themselves as a “Debt Resolution firm that sells individual Debt Settlement solutions of all kinds all over the United States.”

And the Reliance Solutions website has the similar disclaimer on the bottom, “This website is an advertisement that provides consumer leads to debt resolution providers and law firms. The hiring of a law firm is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements. The retention of a client is subject to review.”

The State of California has no registered business listing for Reliance Solutions.

The RelianceSolutions.org domain name is owed by Todd DiRoberto, Atlas Marketing, 1161 Akron St, San Diego, CA.

So the quick bottom line seems to be Capitol Consumer Relief can’t be your debt relief company because they appear to be a lead generator or lead closer effort. You should go back and read your client agreement to see who they passed you off to.
