``Ironically, for about the same cost of the modification mill in Florida, we could have provided a legitimate defense to this family that would have resulted in at a minimum a real offer to modify their loan or a dismissal of the complaint.

That's why I am pleased that the US Justice Department and the FTC have announced this week a major effort to go after these modification mill and foreclosure rescue scammers. Its easy to think of this as an opportunity to complain about the fact that the target of the criminal investigations are not Wells Fargo, Chase or Citicorp, but my caller last night reminded me how real of a problem this is for struggling homeowners.''
