How a Fake Emotional Support Animal Letter Can Ruin Your Vacation

Many individuals struggle with mental or emotional conditions such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, or phobias. These conditions can be as challenging and debilitating as physical limitations, but since their symptoms usually go unnoticed, many people underestimate the severity of these disabilities. Patients with such disorders usually undergo some form of treatment, but in many cases, the therapeutic effects of these treatments are not enough. As such, they may decide to get an emotional support animal to provide companionship and emotional support. ESAs have been known to improve the symptoms of mental and psychological disorders in their owners while providing much-needed affection, comfort, and motivation.

Increasing Number of Individuals Seeking Emotional Support Animal Rx

In recent years, there has been a sharp increase in the number of patients requesting for Emotional Support Animal qualification. Studies carried out by the University of California showed a 1000% rise in the number of assistance animals registered for psychiatric and emotional support services. The study compared the number of animals registered between the years 2000 – 2002 and 2010 – 2012. This shows that an increasing number of patients with mental and emotional disorders are recognizing the benefits of having ESAs.

Fake ESA Certification Providers

Official Designation of Emotional Support Animals

Unlike service dogs, an ESA can be any kind of pet or domesticated animal and do not require specialized training; however, if you want a pet to be officially designated as an ESA, you must be certified by a licensed mental health professional as undergoing treatment for an emotional or psychological disorder. The professional then provides you with an ESA letter stating that the animal is an integral part of the treatment for your condition.

Get your ESA letter to enjoy your vacation with your pet!

Obtaining an Emotional Support Animal Certificate

The right way to obtain an Emotional Support Animal letter is through a certified mental health professional such as a therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist. Such professionals require you to undergo a consultation where they ascertain the status and extent of your condition and determine if you are qualified for an ESA letter. On the other hand, if you go through any of the dozens of outfits who claim to qualify individuals for emotional support animals, chances of getting a fake ESA letter are very high.

Consequences of a Fake Emotional Support Animal Letter

With a legitimate emotional support letter, you can have access to stores, restaurants, and housing with a no-pets-allowed policy or travel on buses and airlines with your animal. However, a fake ESA letter can cause difficulties and get in the way of your itinerary. Airline officials have had to deal with numerous cases of individuals who attempt to travel with their ESAs, and when asked to verify their status, present unauthentic documents. Imagine your surprise when after months of careful planning and anticipation of your long-awaited vacation, you arrive at the airline gate only to get flagged for a fake ESA letter. This puts you in a dilemma since you can’t fly with your animal and you can’t leave it behind. Such a development will alter your plans and may ultimately ruin your carefully planned vacation.

Fake ESA Certification Providers

Detecting Fake ESA Letters

Detecting a fake ESA letter is quite easy if you know what to look for. An ESA letter must be written by an LMHP (i.e., a licensed mental health professional). These professionals include mental health nurse practitioners, licensed psychiatrists, mental health counselors, licensed professional counselors, and clinical psychologists. For an ESA letter to be valid, the LMHP must be licensed to practice in your state of residence. Also, most ESA services claiming to award valid ESA letters do not undertake screening of any kind. If this is the case, it is very likely that an ESA letter obtained from such a service will be declined. Furthermore, any ESA letters provided by an online service purporting to be an Emotional Support Animal Registry, United States Dog Registry, US Animal Registry, or Service Dog Registry of America are fake. No such registries exist.


Ensure that you obtain an ESA letter from licensed mental health professionals. This will help you avoid potential problems when traveling and ensure that your vacation plans go off without a hitch.

    Report the sites that scam you, so they can’t scam others, at the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center! ic3.gov

    I was admittedly almost duped by supportpets.com, but didn’t go all the way through after the survey, and they said, immediately, that my dog was qualified. I’ve been immediately approved for a credit card (directly, from a trusted, big name credit issuer), but this is different, so I was suspicious. I should have been more careful earlier- I usually am, but I’ve thought about getting an ESA letter for a while now, and their site and promises just looked so good. Anyway, just wanted to come back here (as this was the first site where I confirmed is was a scam), to post about it.

    I can’t report supportpets to IC3, as I didn’t actually go through and get scammed (they want name, phone number, money amount, etc, of the person scammed, who the money was sent to, etc, etc). But if you have, help others by helping to get these sites shut down!

      I almost registered supportspet.com throughout Facebook, but luckily before I put my card on that I check whether it is scammed? And I see this website then your comment as well. Thank you !

        I did exactly the same. When I was about the give my credit care to supportspet.com, I googled it and from there, I was happy to find out they’re scam.

      I am so glad i didn’t provided my credit card info. I went thru the test and was automatically qualified, but it seem to easy to be true. Glad i searched petsupporters.com on google, because i ran into this article. Don’t trust Instagram ads!!! They are usually scams. Thanks Cass for providing your experience.

      Yes, supportpets.com was so close to suckering me in, until I got to the pay screen and it had a timer on how much time I had to finish my payment information and submit. Why? So I briefed my aunt, she said quickly do a review on the website, found this site right away, and it was really easy to navigate to the list of scammers!!! So close to losing $100. Thanks Mango Clinic!!!!

    I have a question..hoping someone can help I got my ESA letter one year ago I live in the state of California and my letter came from a licensed therapist in the state of New York I didn’t think anything of it until I started reading far into it to see if mine was legit. I got mine from my pet certs.com and it seems legit I even renewed it but now I’m having doubts. Has anyone ever worked with this company before is it one of the fakes? Do you know what I should do?

    According to CertaPet, they connect you with a LMHP. That LMHP then speaks directly with you, and determines if you have a need for an ESA. If so, you are provided with a letter on that LMHP’s letterhead stating as such. How is this any different for your service? And, if it’s not, why are they listed as “frauds” or a “scam” by your website? Thank you.

      Long story short, in California for instance, non-licensed businesses are not allowed to advertise and sell medical services, it is considered as Unlicensed practice of medicine. From our point of view, it seems like they are selling some papers, not medical services. When your landlord does some research and opens these referral websites, most likely your letter will be denied. Landlords want to see documentation from a licensed doctor with brick and mortar clinic. When you google all these names, you will see a plenty of PDF documents from GOV websites mentioning them of wrongdoing

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I am in the same situation as you were. Thank goodness I didn’t go all the way through with it,!!
    Although, I am still a little disappointed that it’s going to take me a little longer than expected. But on the other hand, at least I do know how to go about getting a official ESA now, so I am very glad for that!!!

      So what did you do to get your pet put as a ESA? , because I’m trying to get my pet registered and I don’t want to get scammed.


      • Alison

        To get your pet registered as an ESA, a doctor needs to evaluate your condition. After this step, if the doctor deems it needed, you will be given an ESA letter. To avoid ESA letter scams, please get your letter from our website: https://mangoclinic.com/esa-letter-online-form/

    What about mycurepet.com? Are they known to scam?


    • Alison

      December 7, 2020 at 2:47 pm

      Hi Alexis, mycurepet.com checks off all our fake ESA letter providers’ pointers. The first and the most important one is their address; it doesn’t have any mycurepet building on it.

    I am really thankful for this list of scam sites, but I do want to point out that having a real ESA note doesn’t let you take your animal into stores and restaurants with a no-pets-allowed policy like you stated. The ADA still doesn’t give ESAs public access rights so even if you do everything right you can only have the animal for housing and on a plane. And even the plane part will be ending in a few weeks, probably thanks to all the scammers.

    I have already been declared mentally and physically disabled by a judge. Am drawing SSDI. Why do I need to be evaluated by anyone else to have a service or support animal?


    • Alison

      February 12, 2021 at 10:28 am

      Hi James, only licensed mental health professionals are capable of writing an ESA Letter.
