Help Us Prevent Fraud
IFPN and its partners offer foreclosure prevention assistance at no charge. It’s important to know the difference between IFPN programs and a potential scam.

Avoid Foreclosure Prevention Scams
Generally, you should beware of anyone who:
- asks you to provide personal information.
- asks you to pay a fee in exchange for a counseling service or modification of a delinquent loan. Counseling services are free.
- pressures you to sign papers immediately, or tries to convince you that they can “save” your home if you sign or transfer over the deed to your house.
HAF is handled electronically and therefore the applicant should refer back to the application account for status.
Currently, there are no refinances or modifications of mortgages within the HAF program.
