(CLEVELAND, Ohio) – Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced his office has filed a lawsuit against The Modification Group LLC (TMG), a Cleveland business that offered to help homeowners avoid foreclosure in exchange for $1,995 or more. The lawsuit alleges multiple violations of Ohio consumer law, including failure to deliver.
“We have received dozens of complaints against The Modification Group,” Attorney General DeWine said. “Consumers said they paid advance fees for help reaching a loan modification, but never received the promised help. In many cases, homeowners who believed they were doing the right thing to help save their homes ended up in even worse financial situations.”
