The BEST help to save your home is FREE

 

Foreclosure Prevention of Michigan should be ashamed of themselves.

The Loan Modification Scam Prevention Network (LMSPN) and the Lawyers’ Committee are outraged that Foreclosure Prevention of Michigan is misappropriating our anti-fraud resources to advance their profit motives. The LMSPN has one consistent message – the BEST help to save your home is FREE. The LMSPN does not in any way endorse fee-based providers that charge homeowners to negotiate with banks or to receive counseling. Why is that our position? Because it is ILLEGAL to charge a homeowner any money whatsoever to negotiate with banks or to receive counseling until AFTER that homeowner has a resolution from their bank or servicer in hand that he or she has accepted. Because genuine HUD-approved housing counselors NEVER charge homeowners to help save their homes and have BETTER relationships with banks and servicers than lawyers or real estate professionals have.  Click here to find a HUD-approved counselor near you.
