Foreclosure scams


Beware of anyone who…

  • Demands upfront fees
  • Guarantees to stop your foreclosure
  • Asks for payment by wire or cashier’s check
  • Tells you not to contact a lawyer or your lender
  • Asks you to send mortgage payments directly to them
  • Proposes you sign over or “share” your property deed or title
  • Suggests a lease-and-buyback arrangement
  • Proposes that he or she fill out paperwork for you
  • Pressures you to sign documents without reading or that you do not understand
  • Requests Power of Attorney
