Federal Trade Commision Ruling - against Nationwide mortgage division for deceptive practices. This is one of the hardest things to read. It states that Nationwide solicted people in danger of default of their mortgages for interest only loans for one year giving them hope of a new loan at the end of the year (nationwide had no intention of giving) with a balloon payment due. This just means making payments for a year and then Nationwide taking their homes anyway.
