Debt Relief Industry

Who Really is Consult America?

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:

debtinate.com
debtlogicusa.com
elimadebtnow.com
encorecapitalusa.com
encorefactors.com
encorelhdr.com
fusionclientservices.com
helpsettle.com
helpsettle.info
helpsettle.net
irsalert.com
legalhelpersdebtresolution.com
legalhelperssupport.com
lhdrhelp.com
manhattanshoppingparty.com
purecleanersnyc.com
sfnewyork.com
timberlinecapital.com
timberlinecapitalusa.com
valuedhealth.com

One the ConsultAmerica.org server are the following sites:

calf.co
consultamerica.org
purecleaners.com
purecleanersny.com

twilliondollars.com

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.

    • Are they actually the lender or brokering a loan? You might also want to check available loans on LendingClub.com and Prosper.com

      Both of those groups are peer-to-peer lending networks.

  • This company does a bait and switch. They send out loan approvals which is a equity loan but most people can’t get approved. They will sell you Debt settlement. They will tell you that you have to send in your statements so they can do an analysis of your credit card statements so they can offer you options. which is really one option, debt settlement. They hire young adults who have no ideal what they are doing., They will tell you that it is guarantee that your debt will get settle or you credit score will only be affected slightly. They use Intercontinental mortgage as well as Associated Mortgage bankers. They are under the same management as legal helpers. Actually the legal helpers debt settlement is in the same building(same floor) as consult america, or the new law firm credit advocate law firm. Legal helpers should be located out of chicago but when you call they are actually in nyc, in the same building as consult america, credit advocates. more to come.

  • Who is Consult America and are they legit?  I know the answer but I was contacted the same way as your other Guest

  • Thanks Steve, my wife has been communicating with Consultamerica and as usual, was duped into this scam.  She sent them our credit card statements, all kinds of crap!  I put an end to the scam, and told them no thanks to the “enrollment”.  but is there anything I need to worry about as far as the imformation they have?  I’m almost afraid to know!  

    • I would doubt anything will happen as a result but I’d make sure that if you’ve cancelled the service that they don’t contact your creditors on your behalf.

      If you are worried about some kind of identity theft issue, I’d suggest you get a consolidated copy of your credit report every six months or so to keep an eye on it.

    • I have went threw Consult Americas debt reduction program and did fine.
      They settled around 55k in CC debt for me. It was Rougfh at first I went
      Threw a phase where I was unsure. But when you do things different for the first time
      It’s always going to be a little scary. They delivered in all aspects. 8 months out
      Of the program and my credit is back on track. Don’t believe all the people who
      Make bad decisions with CC debt and are just to scared to do anything about it.
      Have fun paying triple what you owe for 20 years….credit is relative!

        •  sorry.. I was wondering when did they settle this CC debt for you? How did you hear about them?
          Thanks.

      • I came on this site to check out the credibility of consultamerica.org. Just got my answer.  I just talked to GWRacette at consultamerica.org. You work for the company. I will not be sending you my statements.
