New Massachusetts Foreclosure Hotline is Slammed by Callers

“We’ve gotten about a 1,000 phone calls,” Martha Coakley said on Thursday morning of the week-old state hotline, which is for residents who fear the foreclosure of their homes. “We average 200 to 300 calls a day from people who are in distress about the mortgage or what they’re concerned about in the future.” [MetroWest Daily]
