    This is a very sad fact… Not just in California actually, although it’s very rampant there. But elsewhere around the country, there’s so many mortgage fraud cases. It’s sickening. I hope the steps the feds are taking will be enough to stamp out that stupid crime.

      Yes, I was visiting my elderly parents and saw infomercials on loan modifications, making them sound like the best thing in the world! Maybe the FCC needs to get involved.

    I was one of those people who trusted 2nd chance negotiations. After paying the up front fee. They rarely followed up with me the status of my loan modification. It’s been 6 months now and still nothing have happened. is there any legal way for me to get my money back? Your response will be greatly appreciated.

      Contact your state’s attorney generals office or state office of consumer affairs. They should be able to assist you with the best course of action. Good luck!
