Beware of Foreclosure Rescue Scams

With millions of individuals and families facing the possibility of foreclosure, it is important to be cautious of those opportunists who wish to take advantage of those truly in need of foreclosure rescue. There have been many stories and warnings about scam artists who would come to "help" you or with offers to rescue you from foreclosure that seem too good to be true. While some offers might be genuine, there are also many unscrupulous characters and companies willing to make a dishonest dollar cashing in on homeowner's fear. They may not have your best interest at heart and often unsuspecting, they leave hard-working homeowners worse off than they were before.

Scams have many different faces; however, the Federal Trade Commission recommends familiarizing yourself with at least some of them, so you can identify them if they come your way and protect yourself. By understanding some of the basic approaches these scam artists use, you will better be able to avoid them.

  • Rent-to-Buy

    One such scam is known as the "rent-to-buy" trap where a company offers to have you turn over the title to your house in exchange for being able to continue living in the home as a renter. They will assure you that you will be able to buy back your once you get on your feet. However, the company will soon increase the rental fee until you are unable pay, then evict you and sell your home.
  • The Disappearing Loan Modification Helper

    Another frequently used scam is where a company offers to secure a loan modification on your behalf for a moderate fee. After the homeowner has paid the fee, the company disappears, leaving the homeowner with even less money and a home that is even closer to foreclosure.
