Debt be gone Credit Specialists

The North Carolina Attorney General's Telemarketing Fraud Prevention Unit has learned that classified ads are being placed throughout the United States for "advance fee loans" by a company using the name and address as follows:

Debt be gone Credit Specialists
PHONE: 877-467-9991
WEBSITE: http://dbgcs.com

The ad reads as follows:

"DO YOU WANT TO START THE NEW YEAR RIGHT? IS YOUR $$$$$$ SITUATION A LITTLE TIGHT? HOW ABOUT GETTING A LOAN WITH NO FIGHT? 877-467-9991. WE OFFER PERSONAL, BUSINESS, DEBT CONSOLIDATION & REFINANCE LOANS. NO UPFRONT FEES INVOLVED."

-----

The companies' main pitch to consumers, that it will provide loans once those consumers pay it a fee in advance, appears to be false. In addition, “Debt Be Gone Credit Specialists” is not licensed to provide or broker loans to NC consumers.

Our office urges you to exercise caution in deciding whether to run this advertisement in your newspapers' classified advertising sections. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dorothy Strickland or Carissa Burroughs at 919-716-6000.

Thank you.
