Whenever a homeowner is struggling, there may be the need to reach out for help as a means of keeping one's home. While there are many widely recommended programs available, there are those who have intentionally scammed people who simply want help so they can avoid home foreclosure. Recently, a Florida based company and their practices made news as it was investigated for scamming homeowners in another state.
The company used local agents in the state in which it operated to bilk customers. It referred struggling homeowners to professionals who vowed to help them obtain loan modifications. The company charged these homeowners a few thousand dollars for the help.
