Jul 25: "Kristin" loan modification scam

"Hi. This is Kristin calling back in regards to your loan modification. You spoke to our office and requested us to call you back if the new program were to come out. This program is available to homeowners who are behind on their mortgage or struggling. Even if you are previously denied the hands program or if you are behind on your mortgage or if you owe more on your home than what it's worth, we can help you. Please call 888-308-6718. Again, the number to reach us is 888-308-6718. Thank you and I look forward to speaking with you."

This message starts off with obvious lies. I never requested scammers like these to call me back. I have no idea what a "hands program" is. I assume the rest of the message contains more lies.
