Fake 2010 U.S. Stimulus Plan Mailers STILL Being Sent

Written by Steve Rhode

Now I’m just in disbelief that bogus debt relief mailers like this are still being sent out. There is nothing compliant about this mailer. It makes unsupported claims, fails to identify the company, and in my opinion, should be avoided at all costs.

I’ve covered similar mailers like this before, which you can see in the related links below.

This mailer was sent in by a wonderful reader and tipster (send in your tips here). They apparently just received it, as you can see by the expiration date, which is of course bogus. And why is it bogus? Because there is no such thing as the 2010 U.S. Stimulus Plan that pays off debts.

This mailer is fabricated on a lie and appears to be designed to fool the recipient into thinking they are eligible for some sort of government program.

The mailer says it is about File No. GP02-174547 and says people should call 1-888-875-7913.

If you or some you know get this mailer, you may want to file a complaint with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

  • I got one I just opened – must have been Feb of 2012 same thing only the File No is GP02-251343 and Toll Free # is 1-877-839-1822.  thanks for posting this on your website so that people like me who think this is too good to be true will find out – yes this is the case, another scam on people who are barely keep their heads above water. 

  • I just received one that says Final Extension Notice, File No. GP03-052113, call toll free 1 877 839-1822

  • Steve, one of my DIY coaching clients also reported receiving this exact same mailer just last week. The only differences are the amounts shown and a different “file” number, which is apparently just a tracking code (commonly used by direct mail marketers to measure results). I believe this takes the prize for the most blatantly non-compliant solicitation for debt relief yet. Virtually every single statement made therein is false or misleading.

    • Ironically, some actually have similar codes and numbers on them to make them look unique. But if you get another, please forward it to me. There are others that are interested in seeing more examples.
