A tipster (send in your tips here) reported that former debt settlement law firm FBL Associates is now looking for sales reps for a new site they setup at BlueChipBankruptcy.com.
The Blue Chip Bankruptcy site is interesting since it makes no apparent mention of debt settlement, a program that FBL Associates has been behind for a awhile now.
The Blue Chip Bankruptcy site promotes bankruptcy by saying:
In these extraordinary times of economic hardship, there has been a significant change in the kind of person that needs financial help. For the first time in history the silent majority is having a hard time affording their monthly bills. People who are filing bankruptcy are not irresponsible people collecting debt to buy luxury items, but are hard-working parents who, because of circumstances unforeseen, find themselves drowning in debt.” – Source
What’s interesting is that while this FBL site is up and selling bankruptcy the old FBL site selling debt settlement services is essentially offline. – Source
