A reader and tipster (send in your tips here) sent in some concern about the American Consumer Credit Counseling website that they wanted us to see.
In light of the Federal Trade Commission Telemarketing Sales Rules that prohibit a number of misleading advertising practices, it is surprising that American Consumer Credit Counseling is making the following statements on their landing page.
- Help you save up to 50% on your total credit card debt.
- Lower your interest rates by up to 50%. – Source

So, do you think, like the reader did, that making such statements about credit card debt and interest rates savings does not comply with FTC marketing guidelines?
