    HAMP “sounded” like a good program to us when we first applied in 2009. At the time we applied, we had never missed a payment and were not even nearing struggling… We just wanted to lower our payments to avoid the inevitable “balloon” of our payments that we knew would eventually happen…BUT HAMP was the very program that our loan servicer (SLS) used to get into “default” where they foreclosed upon us immediately after they notified us that we did not qualify (which we should have)! US Bank NA has been complicit it this fraud, and have come after us full-force to take our home and all our equity (the only loan we have is a HELOC that we took out on our our 100% fully-owned home that we had worked hard and paid cash for in 2005!) NOW we are less than 2 weeks away from EVICTION after having fought an Unlawful Detainer here in CA for 6 months! We are now in the Appeal stage, and the courts are not even listening to us about the fraud that our loan servicer committed while using a FEDERALLY-FUNDED program! We are Pro Se. Just beware of your loan servicer if you enter this program, and by all means, do not skip even one payment! We are going to be rendered homeless over 2 lousy payments! I isn’t a question whether the HAMP program is a good program that can and should help homeowners…it is a question of “How HONEST is your Loan Servicer?” If you don’t know for sure, then stay away from a loan mod!!!
