|Loan modification scams are proliferating at a rapid pace. Homeowners are losing thousands of dollars and are also losing their homes - lured by the promise of loan modification help. To combat this issue, Congress asked NeighborWorks America to launch a national public education campaign. This Webinar will highlight the campaign and its plans to empower homeowners with information to protect themselves against loan modification scams, find trusted help, and report illegal activity to authorities.
The featured speaker will be Barbara Floyd Jones, Program Manager of National Homeownership Programs for NeighborWorks America.
Registration is required. Victim service providers, allied professionals, attorneys, and homeowners are encouraged to participate to enhance their knowledge of this complex issue.
