This company preys on ignorant customers to pay them thousands of dollars for a service that the consumer can actually do for free. They are partnered with Freedom Debt Relief, who has actually been accused of fraudulent practices before....check out this site Rescue 1 Financial trains all of their sales agents to lie to the consumer, to login to Federal websites on the consumer's behalf without their knowledge, and then charges them for this fraudulent act. The sales reps tell the consumer that this service won't effect their credit report when it actually effects it drastically. This company is counting on people to not understand this process and to believe what they are telling them. This company is a detriment to society but they truly believe they are helping people - it's a joke. Some of the sales reps are as blind as the consumer and really think they are doing good for these people. Open your eyes everyone - it is con artists who started this company and they are just training you to be con artists too. Now that brings me to the CEO, Bradley W Smith of Corona Del Mar and Newport Beach. He tries to portray himself as this clean cut family man who actually cares about people. He has everyone so convinced that no one believes he can do wrong, you actually kind of respect the guy. But then when he gets put up against a wall, he shows his true colors and you see that he isn't any different than the two con artist CO-CEOs that he does business with. Branden Millstone and Mark Photoglou - go ahead and check their court records with OC Courts or google them and do a little research. You will find some very interesting things about their past. Don't let this company or these people fool you. For the love of God, someone needs to stop them from their crooked ways and I hope one day these people finally learn that they cannot get through life like this. Sure, they have made millions but they have done it in such a dirty way that they are in desperate need of a wake-up call. I for one would rather be able to look myself in the mirror than to have their filthy money. Please pass this message along to anyone looking to do business with them. And don't get fooled - they are known under various aliases which I have gone ahead and included in the title of this post. No one deserves this kind of treatment and we as consumers need to stick together.

Reason of review:
Poor customer service

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution


Bradley Smith and Branden Millstone are not nice guys. They are running a sweatshop and hurting people in the process.

I have several friends who have innocently enrolled in their program thinking it would actually help. I feel so sorry that now those same friends are being ripped off and have a worse credit score to prove it.

Don't believe what these people or these type of businesses say. They are counting on you to believe them but they have no idea what they are talking about.


My credit tanked after using their service. It's all a scam. The only reason they are still in business is because there are still people who believe in this crap.
