A Cleveland company that offered to help homeowners avoid foreclosure has been sued by the Ohio Attorney General's office for failing to live up to its promises of debt relief.
The lawsuit is seeking full restitution from the Modification Group and its director, Robert Walker. The complaint filed in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court alleges the Modification Group charged homeowners $1,995 or 1% of the mortgage balance with the promise of lowering interests rates and/or eliminating late payment charges.
