Debt Referral Program Mysterious Mailer Sends Up Red Flags

By on October 11, 2017

A kind reader sent in a debt relief mailer they received from Debt Referral Program out of Los Lunas, New Mexico.

I was unable to locate any such company and the State of New Mexico has no company under that name who is registered to do business.

The vanilla mailer envelope only helps us to understand it was mailed from Boca Raton, FL with Postal Permit 1535.

The mystery company with the ever too generic name says it is located at 1400 Main Street NW Suite B, Los Lunas, NM 87031-4866.

The messaging on the mailer seems problematic in my opinion when it says, “This letter is being sent to you one last time before you are no longer deemed eligible for help by this office. Once we have been contacted, we will have authorization to restructure your open balances to $12,000 on your behalf directly with your creditors.” Sounds like a load of crap to me.

The marketing mailer seems to be selling some sort of debt settlement program. It claims to be able to settle the debt for 50% of what is owed in 36 months but makes no mention of success rates or fees as is required by the Federal Trade Commission.

The fine print in the mailer isn’t significantly helpful. It says the figures given are for illustration purposes solely, and the service may be farmed out to others including an attorney.

Overall the fine print reads more like a mailer for an attorney model debt settlement program but it is hard to really understand what the sales mailer is really trying to sell.

My opinion would be to stay away from whoever this is who can’t identify themselves.

    Got one and even a call. I’m having surgery and they said they were from the hospital.. asked for emergency numbers.. which I know the hospital has.. then asked for payment.. said it was for co pay.. I haven’t even had the surgery yet! then I get this bill the next day with the same amount the phone call asked for. With a bogus debt I do not have.. be careful with this company. Mine was from Dallas, tx..

    I have received the same letter yesterday for $10,000 where they say that I should call the phone 800-6418466, this is definitely a fraud, be very careful, I do not have any debt. I will send this letter to the “Federal Trade Commission that protects America’s consumers” You should do the same.

      I just got one today with the same address in Dallas stating I owe $16K. It made no sense since I have never had a past due balance. Glad this thread is out there for people to see!

    Just got one sent to me in Illinois. Looks just like the image in the article. I rarely check my credit but recently had done so in the context of wanting to raise my credit limit. I wonder if they are buying lists from credit agencies of people who have recently checked credit score and using that event to make these mail pieces “feel” legit. So scammy. Envelope had Boca Raton FL permit number 1535. Mail piece used Debt Relief Center, P.O. Box 660675 #31711, Dallas, TX.

    We just got a second notice from this company claiming we owed $18,000. Can you say “SCAM.”

    Has anyone looked into whether or not it is legit? Like an attempt to call to see what they are really offering?

      Matt … They’re “offering” to rip you off! Do [not] call these scammers. If you respond they’ll know their phishing expedition has paid off–you’re a “live” one!

    Received one today indicating it was a second request. Address is 304 S Jones Boulevard, #4300, Las Vegas, NV 89107. Glad I looked it up. It does read poorly and figured it was SPAM. Thank you for writing it up everyone!

      I got it today same address like you
      Do not have any debt right now
      It said I had $18000 debt and can settle for $9000
      Scam mail be careful
      Check NV cooperation and business but there is no debt referral center
      Also phone number belong to other business

    Yeah, we just got the same letter. Can’t identify the company, seems fishy.

    We got one today saying we have an estimated creditor balance of 15k which is NOT TRUE. We paid off all credit card debt last year. My heart dropped thinking it was legit though. Glad I found this website.
