(KMOV) --This week, Assistant Attorney Generals will meet with people in the St. Louis area to offer help deciphering the details of a $25 billion dollar national mortgage settlement with five major lenders.
The settlement with Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Ally Financial (GMAC) is meant to force lenders to do more to help people who are underwater stay in their homes.
