But not everyone offering mortgage loan modification services are on the up and up. Following are tips to help you identify and avoid a federal foreclosure relief scam:
* Before agreeing to any services, be sure to check out the consumer complaint history of any company offering federal foreclosure relief services. Sources include your state’s Attorney General’s Office or consumer affairs department, or the Better Business Bureau, with whom Jackson Federal Foreclosure Relief has an “A” rating.
* Inspect the website of any company offering federal foreclosure relief services for signs of misrepresentation. Many of these federal foreclosure scams have websites that use a hyphen or forward slash in front of the “.gov” or “.us” domain suffix to make it appear that the company is a government agency or affiliate. Also check the company’s website for spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes.
* Avoid any company that gives you a high-pressure sales pitch, uses scare tactics or purports to offer access to government assistance programs unavailable through other companies or agencies.
