Countrywide Financial Corp., Calabasas, Calif., said Wednesday that it has been subpoenaed by the Florida attorney general's office, which is looking into its foreclosure practices, among other things. Florida joins several other states, including Illinois and Pennsylvania, that are reviewing allegations that the nation's largest lender/servicer charged excessive fees in regard to foreclosures and used high-pressure sales tactics in pushing payment-option adjustable-rate mortgages.
