No relief for Debt Relief USA
Debt Relief USA, also called No Debt USA, couldn't seem to help itself. The debt-consolidation company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in June with $5 million in total liabilities and only $4.65 million in assets. Not only has the company filed for Chapter 11, it has completely shut down, leaving customers out of luck.

The company site also reported that it faces investigations from the Federal Trade Commission and by the Attorneys General of several states.
