Debt Counselors of America, the Real Debt Counselors of America

During the past week I discovered a new company in New York has registered a debt settlement company using the name of the non-profit group I founded in 1994, Debt Counselors of America.

We later changed the name from Debt Counselors of America to Myvesta because I was amazed how many people can’t spell either debt or counselors. During the time the company was called Debt Counselors of America I was called a “deck counselor”, a “death counselor”, a dept consoler”, and other variations. It became clear that a better name for the company was needed.

But I must confess, discovering that someone else copied my company name can only be viewed as an intentional action designed to leech off the good name I created under Debt Counselors of America. If this new company had done a simple google search for Debt Counselors of America they would have discovered a long history of Debt Counselors of America in use. And maybe they did.

So I already don’t like these folks at Debt Counselors of America, LLC, 457 Two Rod Road, Marillia, New York 14102, or as I like to call them, “The Impostors.”

I can’t wait to see what happens next on this. It’s not over yet.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
