In New York City, the New York Daily News recently ran a couple of stories that mention Long Island-based loan modification firm American Modification Agency ("AMA"). The firm reportedly is facing a $100 million class-action suit that claims the company has collected fees from more than 7,000 homeowners nationwide - all potential victims. For the stories, see:

- Bronx woman says she's a victim of bogus foreclosure 'helper.'
