The FDIC has launched a FREE Foreclosure Prevention Toolkit for consumers in order to help them to avoid unnecessary foreclosures as well as foreclosure prevention scams.
This tool kit tells the consumer who to contact and what documents are needed to apply for a loan modification that could help to save their home from foreclosure.
The public can access the free tool kit at http://www.FDIC.gov/foreclosureprevention.
The FDIC's foreclosure prevention tool kit includes:
- "Is Foreclosure Knocking at Your Door?" brochure (available online and in print), which encourages consumers facing financing difficulties to contact their servicer, apply for a loan modification and talk to a counselor.
- "Beware of Foreclosure Rescue Scams" brochure (available online and in print), which provides information on common scams, tips for detecting fraudulent deals, and resources for reporting criminal activity.
- Spring 2009 edition of FDIC Consumer News, which features advice for consumers on avoiding foreclosure rescue and loan modification schemes.
- Your Own Home module of the FDIC's Money Smart curriculum, which offers tips and advice on avoiding foreclosure with a loan modification, preventing foreclosure "rescue" scams and providing legitimate sources of foreclosure prevention assistance.
