Don't get involved with foreclosure rescue scamsThis is an easy question
to answer. Do not get involved with anyone who is not a reputable attorney,
period. After someone is served with foreclosure, they will be bombarded
by a number of advertisements from lawyers, real estate agents, and unfortunately,
people who are looking to take advantage of the homeowner. I just met
with a client today who responded to an ad from a company that promised
to save her home. All she had to do was sign the house over to them, then
they would negotiate with the bank and sell the house back to her. THIS
IS A SCAM, DO NOT GET INVOLVED WITH THESE RIP-OFFS AND NEVER SIGN YOUR
HOME OVER TO ANYONE!!!
Another common scam that people receive advertisements for is when someone
offers to buy your home and they will take care of the bank. The unsuspecting
homeowner will receive a few thousand dollars, then the "new owner"
will rent the house to someone and collect tens of thousands in rent.
The original owner, however, is still on the hook with the bank, despite
the scammer's promises, and their financial lives are left in ruin.
