Believe it or not, 92.5% of the 4.5 million homeowners who had a home in some state of foreclosure between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 have done nothing to collect on the huge settlement that the U.S. Government received from mortgage lenders. It doesn’t matter if all you every got was a single foreclosure notice. Even if you brought your mortgage current, turned over your keys with a deed-in-lieu, did a short sale, loan modification or eventually went through foreclosure, you may be eligible.

Visit the Federal Review Bureau’s foreclosure review page to find out if your mortgage lender was part of the settlement. Then call the toll-free number they have to get instructions on how to get a free review and see if you’re due compensation for the experience you went through.

So many people complained about the bank bailout who could benefit from resources that have been set aside in this settlement. The deadline has been extended to September 30, 2012. If you know of ANYONE who struggled to save their home during that time period, and had a mortgage with one of these lenders, please tell them to visit the page above and make the call. Share this article with everyone you can think of who might have been affected. Time for your bailout!
