Doug Sends In Debt Free Angels Mailer

A tipster (send in your tips here) reader sent in the following statement and advertisement they received.

I received the attached advertisement in the mail so I went online to check them out and found the company reviewed on your site. I am so glad I did before I called them and I have also seen their commercial on the local news station who apparently endorses them which is thought really was strange.

They look like a scam to me and I don’t know how they could cut my bills in half and make me debt free in 6 months, can they? They are also saying “Free” Enrollment on their ad but I am not sure how this can all be free.

I am paying my bills but it seems like I can never get ahead. Join the crowd I guess. I am going to look at some of your articles.

Thank You

Doug

The advertisement does seem to have some issues with it. The statements about cutting your bills in half and being debt free in 6 to 36 months with an associated fee seems to fly in the face of the FTC telemarketing sales rules.

But the advertisement also says that your debt can be reduced by 80% in as little as 6 months, if you put the two statements together.

The other puzzling part of the advertisement is the statement about being KSAT.com experts. but as I said before, “They use the LocalExperts KSAT logo and mention it in the ad for credibility but on their KSAT page it clearly says, “KSAT’s Local Experts page on KSAT.com is provided only as a convenience and service to its users. This paid advertising is not to be construed as an endorsement by KSAT of any advertiser, product or service advertised herein.” – Source

Thank you Doug for sending this in and being a beloved tipster (send in your tips here).

  • I am a client of Debt Free Angels and they are not a scam.  They did settle my debt at 68% overall and it took me 3 years to get it all paid.  Also, it was a free enrollment.  It didn’t cost me a think to get going.  Yes, they have a fee, but they spread it out and I had two debts settled before I had finished paying them their money.  I know that doesn’t always work out that way, but they have a 100% money back guarantee and everything they did was in alignment with the contract and their guarantee.  I highly recommend them!

  • I found two of their commercials in the link below. Crazy they say “Debt Free Angels saves you $400 every month and will eliminate your debt guranteed” and the second commecial starts off with “Been Naughty?” what the heck?? And of course the on screen “Eliminate up to 80%”.

    Maybe someone should explain to the TV station what they are up to here, of course the TV station probably just want their advertising money and I’m sure with the upfront fees it is working out well for them.
