Apparently Debt Quest USA Did Not Get the Memo From the FTC on Marketing

Debt Request USA

A wonderful tipster (send in your tips here) alerted me to the Debt Quest USA home page and the claims they are making. I was surprised to see a company still using advertising language that flies in the face of the FTC telemarketing sales rules. As you can see they say the typical client has their payments cut in half, ... Read More »

    National Relief Shows You What NOT to Do.

    National Relief

    A tipster (send in your tips here) sent me the link to the National Relief site and asked me to look at the top of the site. Just my opinion, but that’s how a company gets a target on its back. I would strongly advise against anyone advertising using either “100% FTC Compliant” or the FTC logo on their site. ... Read More »

      A tipster (send in your tips here) directed my attention to a recent class action suit file in New Jersey against a whole host of Legal Helper Debt Resolution friends.

          Why is TASC Saying Consumers Pay Really High Interest Rates in Credit Counseling?

          A tipster (send in your tips here) just brought this video to my attention. It features Dave Leuthold the executive director of TASC, until recently. I’m not sure what happened over at TASC but it looks like they cleaned house. In fact as of today they are down to 58 members and I can’t find a mention of Leuthold there ... Read More »

            Debt Restructure Market Sends Out Affiliate Pitch

            Debt Restructure Market

            A super tispter sent in the following email being sent out by Debt Restructure Market to find affiliates. A couple of points really caught my eye. I know that NoteWorld is taking great exception to the phrase NoteWorld Approved. NoteWorld does not approve the company model and issues no public statement of approval. The pitch is that affiliates will earn ... Read More »

              Consumer Debt Assistance TASC

              One of the AACC members forwarded me a deceptive mailer a consumer had received. The number on the mailer, 888-354-8913, goes to Consumer Debt Assistance. The Consumer Debt Assistance site boldly displays the TASC logo but guess what, that appears to be deceptive as well. According to TASC membership records, Consumer Debt Assistance is not a member. – Source The ... Read More »

                Peter Popoff

                I’m not sure what to say about this. I know if I come across as cynical I’m going to be attacked by some since this involves religion. I am not attacking religion. If anything I’m attacking a caught scammer who is manipulating people using religion to eliminate their debt problems. A fantastic tipster (send in your tips here) sent in ... Read More »

                      United Settlement Group

                      I spend a lot of time on the internet looking at web sites. I’ve seen thousands in fact. But I had to share this little gem that made me bust out laughing. Apparently privacy is not a concern at United Settlement Group because they didn’t even notice that their privacy policy is just placeholder text. Classic. How in the world ... Read More »

                          Yet another Legal Helpers Debt Resolutions business development manager has come forward. How many business development managers does the company have. This one is associated with a different URL so is each URL a different business unit? Confusing to say the least. The business development manager for Legal Helpers in this email is listed as [email protected] The one the other ... Read More »
