NeighborWorks and WNBA Team Up on Mortgage Fraud

If you're watching women's professional basketball this month, don't be surprised to see our loan scam alerts up near the scoreboard. In honor of National Homeownership Month, the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and NeighborWorks America are teaming up to raise awareness on homeownership loan issues and fraudulent activities.

NeighborWorks America will host awareness nights in WNBA games in June, including Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C. Experts will be onsite to provide information and collateral materials that will help homeowners protect themselves against loan modification scams, find trusted help to protect themselves against such fraud, and report illegal activity to authorities.

This partnership is part of the Loan Modification Scam Alert campaign, which was launched in October 2009 and is the largest national effort to educate homeowners on scams. For more information, visit
