A wonderful tipster (send in your tips here) sent in this email Debt Care Processing, a TASC member, recently sent out in an effort to recruit affiliates.
What struck me was the statement that the program was FTC compliant but claimed to offer “face-to-face” signing and a setup fee.
The face-to-face signing benefit seems to be a service offered by a third-party at the expense of Debt Care Processing. That certainly leads me to believe the sale has already been made and the face-to-face meeting is for signing and not the sales presentation. That would not be in compliance with the FTC rules.
Also there is the interesting statement about a $199 enrollment fee charged to the customer. So if debt settlement services are supposed to be delivered without any advance fee, why is the consumer being charged a setup charge? That seems non-complaint as well.
And what’s up with the two levels of monthly service fees? How is the monthly service for the fee being paid, any different for someone with debt above or below the threshold?
For the life of me I can’t figure out if a consumer is not supposed to pay in advance for debt settlement services that a sales affiliate is going to get their 100% commission paid out in 18 months on a 48 month program. If anyone has any insight on how that’s possible, please comment below.
While they may claim it is complaint, it seems there are some issues that need to be addressed.
