(Phoenix, Ariz. - May 18, 2010) Attorney General Terry Goddard today invited Yuma County homeowners to participate in one of two foreclosure prevention webinars on Thursday, May 27. The first webinar will be conducted in Spanish and will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. It will be followed by a second webinar in English from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
The program will be hosted by Goddard, the Arizona Foreclosure Prevention Task Force and Fannie Mae. Topics to be discussed include resources provided by the federal Making Home Affordable program, important timelines and options for those facing foreclosure, the do's and don'ts of loan modifications and red flags that could point to loan modification fraud. The webinars are an important part of Goddards overall effort to protect homeowners.
I will continue to aggressively prosecute those who attempt to defraud Arizonans struggling to stay in their homes, Goddard said. However, I would much rather prevent families from becoming victims in the first place. These webinars will help both English and Spanish speaking Yuma County homeowners identify the steps they need to take when faced with foreclosure.
