It is unfortunate that some people always try to make money of other people hardship.  HUD and the U.S. government are franticly trying to stop these practices and guide people in the right direction.  This is why HUD has opened a page on their website which helps homeowners and guides them to HUD approved nonprofit counselors.  This is a part of Presidents Obama Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan (HASP), and has the purpose of helping you to get real results and avoid scrupulous scammers.  Here is a link to HUD’s website. 


The U.S. Treasury Department has also opened a website to assist and guide people that need to modify their mortgages and or refinance their homes.  You don’t have to be late on your mortgage to qualify for this program which is called Making Home Affordable.  They have also opened a telephone hotline: (888) 995-4673 and the website is: .  These websites have a lot of information and explain to homeowners how the system works and guides them in a safe way in the right direction.  If your mortgage is a burden to you, I urge you to check out these websites and wish you the best.
