Indiana AG Extends 'Hoosier Hospitality' To Aggrieved Out-Of-State Consumer w/ Civil Suit Targeting In-State Outfit Allegedly Running Loan Mod Racket

In Indianapolis, Indiana, WISH-TV Channel 8 reports:

  • A local business that took $1,200 from an out-of-state consumer and failed to provide a home-loan modification or refund is now facing a state lawsuit.

    Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said the lawsuit was filed against Statewide Federal Assistance Corporation headquartered in Carmel and its owner Ashley Grant.

    The company collected money upfront from a Washington state resident and then failed to obtain the promised home-loan modification, according to a complaint.

    "This is a unique and rare case because it involves an Indiana company taking advantage of an out-of-state homeowner - the opposite of what we regularly investigate," Zoeller said.

    "I believe that's because Hoosier hospitality is not extended to scammers and illegitimate businesses. This lawsuit highlights our ongoing mission to pursue those operating within the state's borders that intentionally deceive consumers."
