Illinois Consumer Beware: Do Not Fall Prey to Unlawful Foreclosure Practices

 Posted on June 12, 2014 in Foreclosure

Illinois citizens have a friend in Attorney General Lisa Madigan. As head of the Consumer Protection Division, Madigan and her staff are constantly fielding legitimate cases of fraud, deceptive and unfair business practices. Available to all Illinois citizens is information and review of unfair practices through the following bureaus:

  • Consumer Fraud Bureau
  • Charitable Trust Bureau
  • Franchise Bureau
  • Health Care Bureau
  • Military and Veterans Rights Bureau

In 2012, Madigan took on the unethical practices of scam ploys that offered “mortgage rescue” for those Illinois homeowners struggling to keep one step ahead of foreclosure. The scam was presented as a forensic audit that would identify errors and reduce the homeowner's monthly mortgage liability. Often the homeowner would pay exorbitant fees then waited on services that never materialized, often finding themselves deeper in debt with no where to turn.

If you are an Illinois citizen who is facing foreclosure do not trust your financial freedom and your home to any fly by night operative looking to make a few dollars at your expense. It is time to contact an experienced Illinois foreclosure attorney who is knowledgeable in the areas of foreclosure and the options available to perhaps save you money and your home.

Although Attorney Madigan and her staff can offer your informative advice on filing a consumer fraud complaint they are unable to personally represent you in your case. The Law Offices of Newland & Newland, LLP can. Partners, Stephen S. Newland and Gary A. Newland can offer you various options to successfully deal with a pending foreclosure, including an above-board forensic audit.

Our experienced team have audited over thousands of loan packages and will lawfully report any violations. If we are unable to discover a discrepancy we will inform you of such and opt to discuss other options available to you. We will not waste your valuable time or money on discrediting a clean forensic audit but rather discuss perhaps loan modification, strategic defense, possible short sale of your home to alleviate debt or home affordable foreclosure alternatives.

At Newland & Newland, LLP we strive to offer your quality legal service and the best recourse to deal with your financial situation and possible foreclosure. We understand the difficulties you are facing and we agree that fraud and deceptive practices should not complicate your current situation. Let us help you choose the best solution.
