5:26 pm
paying off her mortgage with her credit line. >> my ultimate hope is to transfer it away from nation star. >> reporter: nation star explains that it does provide a single point of contact for those facing foreclosure. however, marcia's issue was a consumer problem which it has offered to assist her with. if you are facing an unresponsive mortgage servicing company contact a nonprofit hud approved housing agency and file a complaint with the cfpd. on the consumerwatch, julie watts, kpix 5. now for a look at what's ahead on the "cbs evening news," scott pelley is in new york. scott? >> reporter: coming up, of the nfl has broken its silence and confirms that the patriots used underinflated balls in the afc championship. we'll have more on the investigators who are scouring evidence including emails. plus, winter makes a comeback. we are tracking that storm. those st
