Missouri attorney general to open mortgage-help office in Joplin
Thursday, June 2, 2011 | 9:42 a.m. CDT
JOPLIN — Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster will open an office in Joplin next week to provide mortgage counseling to people whose homes were destroyed by the tornado.
Koster says the field office will be staffed by people with consumer and legal expertise. They'll advise residents facing deadlines for mortgage payments as they wait for insurance checks or for their employers to be back in business.
People with concerns about price gouging, identity theft or contractor scams also can receive assistance through the office.
Koster says the office will begin operating Monday at the American Red Cross shelter on the campus of Missouri Southern State University.
