A reader and tipster (send in your tips here) sent me a copy of an email they recently received from a company called Jet Debt Settlement.

First off, to make such unsupported performance claims just sets off all sorts of red flags for me. So, being pissed off about the message I had to go checkout the site.
They claim to be A+ members of the Better Business Bureau. The BBB says they are not members and have no company listed by that name.
They claim to be accredited members of the American Fair Credit Council. The AFCC does not list them as a member. – Source
They claim to be listed with Dunn & Bradstreet. Only one problem. Dunn & Bradstreet has no company listed with that name.
They list their telephone number as 800-677-1194. That number is also used by a site that claims they can help you capture leads. – Source
The entire Jet Debt Settlement website consists of one page.
Well, when you fill out their online request you do get a second page.
The company response email says:
Congratulations in taking your first step in defeating your debts. This is just a preliminary email to let you know that we received your request and will be contacting you at the phone number you provided.
If you are like most consumers and screen your calls by utilizing caller ID, please look for (407) 797-4465
