AmeriFree Says I Got It All Wrong

Written by Steve Rhode

In a recent article “Why Isn’t AmeriFree Licensed in Their Own State?” a reader asked why AmeriFree did not appear to be registered to offer debt relief services in Arizona.

As I said in the article, I had previously reached out to AmeriFree for a statement or response and heard nothing. Well today I have. A John Corey said, “AmeriFree is not licensed in Arizona for credit counseling and does not have any credit counseling customers, nor do we advertise for them (or at all). Our efforts stopped a number of years ago.”

Well if I was confused by looking at their site, imagine what the average consumer thinks because the site is strewn with references to their credit counseling program.

So if the site appears to be optimized for a program they don’t offer, is that deceptive marketing? What do you think?

And not only is credit counseling listed prominently on their home page but it’s also the first thing in their site title tag which says “Consumer Credit Counseling and Debt Management.”

Apparently they have not looked at their own site in “a number of years.”
