Having trouble paying your mortgage?

(WFLX) - With the news that foreclosures took a sharp turn upward last month, here's some information you might find useful.

A year after the foreclosure fraud scandal taught us terms like "robo-signing", foreclosures are on the upswing again. Nearly four million Americans are said to be more than 60 days behind on their mortgage.

With countless others one paycheck away from missing a payment. That's why U.S. Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan has launched a homeowners' hotline for those facing foreclosure.

You can get free help from the Federal Housing Department by calling the HUD Hope Hotline at 888-995-HOPE or visiting the Web site, MakingHomeAffordable.gov.
