South Floridians who want to speak to Florida’s attorney general about foreclosure problems, loan modifications or mortgage fraud can do it in person this weekend.
On Saturday in Miami, Attorney General Bill McCollum will be on hand for a Mortgage Fraud Community Forum. He’s hosting the event with Florida’s Interagency Mortgage Task Force.
The session is on “The Housing Crisis, Who to Trust and Where to Turn.” As Florida’s foreclosure crisis has deepened over the past two years, the Attorney General’s Office has handled hundreds of complaints about mortgage loan modifications and launched dozens of investigations into mortgage fraud since 2009.
The event is open to the public and free, but reservations are required. Call 877-385-1621. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. atMiami Dade College, Wolfson Campus, Chapman Conference Center, 300 NE Second Ave.
