                A reader forwarded me a link to a video that promoted a service called “Herschel Bentley’s Debt Elimination Advisory” that promotes debt settlement.

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


                    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.
