So with the economy how it is, lately I've been seeing lots of commercials urging struggling home owners to call X law office or Y housing counselor
for help and it makes me LIVID. These are essentially scams. They do what they promise, but they rip people off.
I work two jobs, but my main one is at a mortgage company in the department that works with people to modify their loans, get their payments current
and avoid forclosure. Weekly I have people call me and tell me they just paid $1500, $2000, even $3000 to a service to have their loan modified. Why
does this make me livid? Because we do it for free. The only purpose these "services" serve is to play middleman, and honestly make it more
confusing for the homeowner.
Basically all I want out of this post is to make people aware. Do not fall victim to one of these services when you need that $1500 or more to make
Call your mortgage company if you're struggling. They have options to help. You don't need some greedy lawyer to keep your home when you've fallen
on hard times.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get this sentement widely noticed outside of ATS? I'd like as many homeowners as possible to know, because those
commercials are on all the time...
