CT Kicks More Debt Relief Ass. When Will the Industry Learn to Not Piss Off CT?


Maybe more in the debt relief world can learn by the unfortunate actions below by the Connecticut Department of Banking. I’ll let their words give the lesson that needs to be learned. LOCN, Inc, United Relief Services – December 3, 2014 1. LOCN Inc. d/b/a United Relief Services CEASE AND DESIST from violating Section 36a-671(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes, ... Read More »

    Rescue One Financial Still Sending Unsecured Personal Loan Mailers


    An amazing reader sent in a new debt relief mailer through my I Buy Junk Mail program. I’ve covered Rescue One mailers before and it elicited an alleged former employee to speak out. See this link. My previous coverage even wound up with a rather dubious event, the appearance that Rescue One was potentially involved, directly or indirectly, in paying ... Read More »

      Creditors Concourse Trust – Crazy Times

      Senior couple at home focusing on angry man

      A reader wanted me to look at the website of a company called Creditors Concourse Trust at After looking at the site, I can see why.

        HDRP Approval Department Mailer


        An amazing reader, Roger, sent in a new debt relief mailer through my I Buy Junk Mail program. This mailer is nearly identical to another one I covered here. The only differences are the name on the outside of the mailers, from HDRP Funding Department to HDRP Approval Department, and the phone number. The postal permit is 507 out of ... Read More »

          BeginToSave Sends Out Advanced Fee Debt Relief Mailer


          An amazing reader, Rhodesey, sent in a new debt relief mailer through my I Buy Junk Mail program. It certainly looks like this a rehash of the old debt settlement mailers we used to see. The fine print at the bottom says “Begintosave is a national advertising center contracted by both local law firms and non-profit debt resolution companies.” Outside ... Read More »

            Complete Financial Solutions Mailer Goes to the Dogs


            An amazing reader sent in one of the more unusual debt relief mailers I’ve ever seen through my I Buy Junk Mail program. Gary Jones from JW Financial Insights has apparently sent out a very odd mailer to people to promote something. The envelope appears to be very generic with a note attached. Inside the envelope the reader received what ... Read More »

              Colorado Moves to Lower Debt Settlement Fees


              A reader forwarded me a copy of this document from the State of Colorado regarding debt settlement. It contains some interesting sections. For example there is this one. Recommendation 2 – Limit settlement fees to 15 percent of the debt forgiven from a completed settlement. “A Settlement Provider negotiates with a creditor to convince it to forgive a portion of ...

                Bicoastal Funding Debt Consolidation Loan Offer Review


                An amazing reader Burgemj sent in a new debt relief mailer through my I Buy Junk Mail program.

The debt consolidation loan offer from Bicoastal Funding arrived in a ... Read More »

                    I previously published a story about an outfit out of Florida being challenged in court over allegations they were selling credit repair services. See this story.

                      Debt Free Student Runs Most Unbelievably Dumb Advertisement

                      Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 5.11.39 PM

                      A reader forwarded an advertisement they saw on Facebook for a student loan assistance company called Debt Free Student. Apparently they didn’t get the memo on using President Obama likeness in debt relief advertising. I’m sure the FTC is going to love seeing this one. Debt Free Student says they are located at 1200 Main Street, Suite G, Irvine, CA ... Read More »

                          The Florida Bar has sent me a copy of the complaint they recently filed against Florida attorney Howard Feinmel. I reported yesterday about the case.

                            Now here is something you don’t get to witness often, if at all. Apparently there is a bit of disturbed blood milling about in the credit counseling world right now.

                              I just love the Collections & Credit Risk magazine and website.
