(Phoenix, Ariz. -- Nov. 17, 2009) Attorney General Terry Goddard today invited Yavapai County homeowners to participate in a foreclosure prevention webinar on Wednesday from 6 – 8 p.m.
The webinar is 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 the red flags to avoid loan modification fraud.
This webinar is the latest in Goddard’s efforts to protect homeowners from loan modification fraud. “I will continue to aggressively prosecute those who attempt to defraud Arizonans struggling to stay in their homes,” Goddard said. “However, I prefer to prevent families from becoming victims in the first place. This webinar will help Yavapai County homeowners identify the steps they need to take when faced with foreclosure, so they have the best chances to stay in their homes and avoid becoming victims.”
