Where to Get Foreclosure Help
With all the dubious assistance programs and out-right scams preying on home owners facing foreclosure, it can be difficult to find legitimate help.
Here's a list of programs that are either operated by the U.S. government or have its seal of approval:
- Call (888) 995-HOPE, the Homeowner's HOPE Hotline to reach a nonprofit, HUD-approved counselor through HOPE NOW, a cooperative effort of mortgage counselors and lenders to assist homeowners.
- The Controller of the Currency's consumer information site for banking-related questions is www.helpwithmybank.gov
