EL PASO – We have an update to a troubleshooters story we've been reporting.

Last week, an El Paso woman said she's been making mortgage payments through an escrow company, but they haven't been paying the bank. She has just over a week to figure out how to avoid foreclosure.

Much has happened since we told you about Yadira Castro's situation. Earlier this month, she got a foreclosure notice, but said she doesn't understand how, if she had been responsibly paying her mortgage through the escrow company that she had used to buy her home.

Since the story aired on Tuesday, Castro said the owner of the escrow company contacted her.

“She texted me on Friday, saying...for me not to worry about it, that the foreclosure is stopped, that she had already spoke[n] to the mortgage company,” said Castro.

But she said she called the foreclosure attorneys and heard something different.

“They told call this week to see what's going on, but they haven't told me the foreclosure is stopped or anything like that.”

And with the foreclosure date looming, Castro said she's dreading it.

“I don't want April the 5th to get here because I don't know my reaction, how it's going to be,” said Castro.

Despite that, Yadira wants to thank those who have reached out to her with their support.

“Thanks for all the people that were giving me their support, their prayers. Let's see what's going to happen next.”

Meantime, calls to the escrow company today were not answered.

The Escrew Company(spelled wrong on purpose) Text you????????? That right there shows you how professional they are. NO NO NO!!!!!!

You call anyone and everyone you can. if you have the proof you made your payments make copies. Write down everyone you spoke too. write down how long you spent on the phone with each person. If you got disconnected or transferred write it down. Get first and last names and ID numbers if they have them of everyone you spoke too regardless if it was 2 min. or 20 min. Trust me the exact same thing happened to me and I was too stupid to know how to stop it. Lesson learned but no home. Call a lawyer
