Homeowner can become target of fraud trying to stop foreclosure

The desperation felt by a homeowner trying to stop foreclosure in the wake of financial challenges can make that person an easy target for an unscrupulous mortgage lender. The sudden loss of income from unemployment or a pay cut associated with a lack of overtime or fewer hours worked can make it difficult to keep up with monthly mortgage payments.

Banks around the nation increase action against bad home loans

For several quarters, the rate of foreclosure around the nation, including states with a high share of institutional investors, such as Ohio, decreased overall. The most recent quarter has seen a dramatic increase of 66 percent of homes that face foreclosure action due to the default of a loan repayment. This means that families who are already facing financial hardship might face the very real threat of losing their home.

In fact, the problem remains serious enough that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission has teamed up with both state and local law enforcement agencies in Ohio and elsewhere to combat it under the aegis of "Operation Collection Protection."

Federal foreclosure assistance was too slow for some Ohio victims

If you were one of the unfortunate victims of the foreclosure crisis in Ohio, this “news” may not be news to you. But the trickle-down effect throughout the Ohio economy could have affected many others and may continue to do so. While help was on the way, the waiting was the hardest part.
