Loan modification services, class action law suits, debt consolidation firms have all had their ups and downs. Loan modification companies were getting shut down over making their clients pay up front for services that were not completed. Today, it is illegal for loan modification services to charge up front costs for their service. Class action law suits were very popular over the last few years. This is when companies will solicit people who cannot afford their mortgage to sue the mortgage company over unfair lending practices or some other various reasons like MERS violations. These companies were basically set up as a law firm, but powered by call centers that took money to add your name to a huge list of people who wanted to sue mortgage banks to use as leverage to stay in their homes. Well, most of these class action law suits are being thrown out of court by judges because all of the individual situations are different. None of the “class action” plaintiffs have the same exact house, same loan, same neighborhood, and same mortgage scenario. Judges recognize this and throw it out of court because it is not a true “class-action” situation. Debt consolidation firms were also getting shut down because they rarely provided the service that they advertise to provide. Debt consolidation usually may help settle a couple of accounts, but you probably paid just as much in monthly service fees and account charges to have settled the accounts on your own.
