Florida officials are suing four related companies that were allegedly collecting up to $1 million a month in up-front fees for loan modification services that it failed to deliver, soliciting consumers through the Internet and automated phone calls using President Barack Obama’s voice.

FHA All Day.Com, the company’s owner, Jason Vitulano, and three other affiliated companies are accused of failing to perform services promised to homeowners facing foreclosure, after the Florida Attorney General’s office received more than 300 complaints.
