Beware of Impostors: MainStreet Financial Planning, Inc Sets the Record Straight

In the vast world of financial services, it’s crucial to distinguish between legitimate businesses and those seeking to exploit unsuspecting individuals. MainStreet Financial Planning, Inc. wants to address a recent issue that has come to our attention, confusing our valued clients and potential customers.

Clearing the Air: We Are NOT Main Street Financial, the Debt Consolidation Agency

It has come to our notice that some individuals have been receiving robo calls from an entity claiming to be “Main Street Financial” and offering debt consolidation services. We want to make it unequivocally clear that MainStreet Financial Planning, Inc is not associated with this debt consolidation agency in any way.

We are a Financial Planning Firm, that has been around for over 21 years dedicated to providing comprehensive and personalized financial solutions for our clients, including tax planning and preparation, and estate document preparation. We don’t offer any advice or services for debt consolidation.

Please also note that the name of our financial planning firm is spelled differently. It’s “MainStreet” as one word, and not two, like “Main Street”.

If you have been receiving robo-calls from the number with the “855” area code, please be aware that it is not us (MainStreet Financial Planning, Inc) making those calls. We understand the annoyance and frustration that unwanted calls can cause, and we want to assure you that we are actively working to identify and stop this imposter company.

How to Take Action: File a Complaint

If you have fallen victim to these deceptive calls or wish to report them, there are steps you can take to address the situation:

  1. Better Business Bureau (BBB): The BBB is an excellent resource for reporting scams and unethical business practices. You can submit a complaint online to share your experience. [BBB Complaint Form](
  2. Federal Trade Commission (FTC): File a complaint with the FTC, providing details about the deceptive calls and any relevant information. [FTC Complaint Form](

  4. Your Phone Carrier: Contact your phone carrier and report the robo calls. They may have tools or services to help block or filter unwanted calls.

How to Stop “Main Street Financial” Calls: Take Control

If you are receiving unwanted calls from “Main Street Financial” and want them to stop, here are steps you can take:

  1. Ask to be Removed: If you answer a call from “Main Street Financial”, ask them to remove your number from their calling list. Legitimate businesses are required to honor such requests.
  2. Do Not Provide Personal Information: Avoid giving any personal or financial information over the phone. Scammers may use this information for fraudulent purposes.
  3. Check for Caller ID Blocking: If possible, check if your phone carrier provides services to block calls from specific numbers or activate a call blocking app.
  4. Report to the Authorities: File complaints with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as mentioned earlier. This contributes to ongoing efforts to identify and stop fraudulent activities.
