Icon18 FTC clamps down on mortgage modification scammers

You've probably seen the pitches on TV and the Internet or found them stuffed in your mail: official-looking communications complete with logos and letterheads that look vaguely like those used by the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies.

They are instead criminal enterprises posing as do-gooders who promise to get you out of the mortgage jam you're in.
