As an attorney representing clients in foreclosure throughout Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties, I meet clients every week who have been targeted by mortgage modification, foreclosure rescue or other real estate-related scams. Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum has formed an Interagency Task Force made up of representatives from dozens of public and private agencies who are on the front line of the mortgage crisis.
The Task Force will hold a Town Hall Meeting, Saturday, August 15, 2009 from 8:00-1:00 at the Stetson Law School, 1700 North Tampa Street, Tampa. Anyone facing foreclosure or who has any interest in this foreclosure crisis is encouraged to attend. Visit https://myfloridalegal.com/mfraud.nsf/pages/Meeting for more information.
The Attorney General’s Office is to be commended for taking a very proactive and aggresive approach to dealing with the foreclsoure crisis and they deserve the support of the attorneys and legal community who often see the results of illegal activity first hand.
