• Bank of America in talks on $12 billion mortgage settlement

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Federal investigators say they're working out a $12 billion settlement with Bank of America over bad mortgages.

    CNN reports it is because of allegations the bank defrauded people who bought mortgage-backed securities by not telling them about the quality of the loans.

    Those securities played a major role in the recession in 2008.

    At least $5 billion of the settlement would go to helping homeowners pay off their principals and cutting monthly payments.
