The government's Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) has been widely criticized for its substandard results, and a new report from Fitch Ratings indicates that even the small successes it's made so far may soon be reversed. The company says that within 12 months, as many as 65 percent of the prime loans modified under the federal program will likely re-default. For modifications on subprime loans, the projection is even higher - 75 percent. What's worse is that Fitch called its estimates "conservative."
