Yes, sadly ESA owners need to be aware of ESA letter scams. These fraudulent sites claim to provide ESA Letters, but these are not legitimate, and do not comply with US federal and state laws.
The most typical fraud we've come across are sites that claim to certify service animals (not emotional support animals) without any of the formal testing or accreditation required for that process. The US government has started to crack down on these types of fraud and will impose hefty fines – or even prison sentences– for convicted offenders.
Here are the clues to help you spot a scam site:
You don’t have to speak with a mental health professional live by phone or video. Legitimate ESA Letter suppliers are required by law to ensure that you speak with a licensed mental health professional over the phone or video.
If a web-based company simply asks you to answer questions using a quiz or "exam" but doesn't ask you to schedule a live consultation afterwards, it is probably a scam.
If you are guaranteed a letter without a consultation, it is definitely a scam!
Free My Paws, through Felicitails does not guarantee the diagnosis you are seeking. Instead, we refer you to a highly-experienced and licensed mental health therapist who conducts a live evaluation and provides legitimate ESA letters according to their professional assessment of your condition.
In the event that your diagnosis does not require the support of an ESA, you will receive a 100% refund of your prepayment without delay.
