NeighborWorks America supports and applauds the much-needed crackdown on foreclosure rescue scam artists that was announced April 6 by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), U.S. Attorney General’s Office, Treasury Department, and Department of Housing and Urban Development. NeighborWorks America is also working with the FTC to develop a national public education campaign to make borrowers aware of how to avoid foreclosure prevention scam artists. Homeowners in danger of foreclosure should never pay for help, and should instead seek assistance from HUD-approved nonprofit housing counseling agencies, including those found at www.findaforeclosurecounselor.org and www.makinghomeaffordable.gov.
