If a company other than your bank is offering a principal reduction program to you, that should be your first clue that something is probably amiss.
Crooks are scamming homeowners left and right with empty promises about cutting a mortgage balance in half. Don't pay anybody to do this for you because you can do it yourself. Just call your bank and ask if such a program is offered. Report these scam artists to the authorities such as your state attorney general's office.
