Search for hundreds of victims of racial discrimination by mortgage lender

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The government is looking for hundreds of victims of racial discrimination by a mortgage lender.

As U. S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett explained Monday, "Now victims who were unfortunately susceptible can come forward and claim anywhere from $3,000 to $20,000 in terms of a class action settlement."

Between 2004 to 2008, Countrywide Financial is accused of discriminatory lending practices that affected more than 1300 African-American and Latino Americans.

Investigators say there are hundreds of victims in Indiana and the Louisville area who have not come forward to claim their part of the $335 million settlement.

Possible victims need to contact the Department of Justice at 1-800-843-5148 or at info@CWFLSettlement.com.
