West Virginians to get mortgage settlement money

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- More than 2,600 West Virginians are expected to receive money from a national mortgage settlement.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey says residents in the state are getting a combined total of more than $3.8 million in settlement funds.

Forty-nine states, including West Virginia, as well as the federal government, announced the settlement with five participating mortgage service providers last year. Those service providers include Ally/GMAC, Bank of America Corp., Citi, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Wells Fargo & Co. The settlement included a $1.5 billion payment to help compensate borrowers for mortgage servicing abuse they may have endured.

Morrisey says more than 2,660 checks will be mailed around mid-June to West Virginians who experienced a foreclosure sale between Jan. 1, 2008, and Dec. 31, 2011.
