Did a search and came up with nothing on this here.
I just received a letter that looks very official, as though it might be from the government, but it isn't. This is an ad for Funeral Advantage
Program Assists Seniors.
Now, I don't know if it actually qualifies as a scam, but if you don't look too hard you'll see a picture of an eagle, when in fact it's a dove (and
not a government emblem).
Anyway, I don't know about any of you, but if I do an internet search and come up with something negative about a company, I steer clear.
This is what I found:
Scam Alert National Reply Center
Some of the complaints at this site are:
a folded post card type advertisement that misleadingly looks like a check or a government mailing.
The mailing is from National Reply Center, who gathers information from seniors and sells it to insurance companies who then contact the recipients.
The company makes mailings to many states and has received complaints nationwide for it's misleading business practices.
You are asked your date of birth and phone number. Guess what? You're going to get a phone solicitation to sell you insurance at higher than normal
Just a word of caution to keep an eye out for this. I'm not buying into it.
