Web sites put loan modifiers under microscope
Long Island residents struggling to stay in their homes can now use the Web to avoid becoming victim to loan modification scams.
The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law launched two Web sites aimed at raising awareness of such scams.
Homeowners can report companies that have conned them, promising to help re-modify their loans. Users can search their zip code to see where other scams have been reported and see subpoenas that have been issued against a company.
Eileen Anderson, of the Community Development Corporation, says it is must-see information for anyone who's fallen victim or just looking for a loan modification company.
