It’s funny how just a simple email from a reader or tipster (send in your tips here) can start a chain of events or an inquiry that goes in the oddest of places.
Recently I got a tip that said LHDRHelp.com and Consult America (consultamerica.org) were related and were operated under the names of two debt relief executives we’d recognize and I’ve reported on previously.
The tipster (send in your tips here) also mentioned something about a mortgage program called Bond Corp, but that’s a different matter.
So I took a casual look at the two sites and they appeared to be unrelated but then I spotted this odd coincidence.
On the LHDR.com server are the following websites:
One the ConsultAmerica.org server are the following sites:
What are the odds of two separate and unrelated entities having sites with essentially the same Pure Cleaners name?
I noticed the Green Business Certified logo on the bottom of the cleaners site and remembered I had just seen the same thing on the Consult America site, odd.
The Consult America site also featured a BBB A Rated logo as well but a search of the BBB site could not locate any company named Consult America. A search of the Green Business Bureau could not locate a Consult America member either.
The Consult America website does not list the address for the debt relief company. The contact page shows a general map for Times Square in New York City.
Given that they appear to be located in New York I did a search of New York State corporations and found there is no company registered to do business under the name Consult America.
The website of Consult America is intriguing as well. The domain name was previously used by someone else but it expired. On April 22, 2011 it was brought back to life under hidden ownership.
