“The FBI has reported a growing number of mortgage relief scams each year since the beginning of the mortgage crisis,” HORN said. “With this report, I’m showing homeowners what they need to watch out for, as well as viable options they can pursue to avoid losing their home to foreclosure.”
The FBI reported a jump of 71% in mortgage relief fraud investigations from 2008-2009, and HORN expects this number to have grown in 2011. As the mortgage crisis continues to claim more and more Americans, HORN sees the need to educate these homeowners on the cautions they need to take.
This community resource is available at www.CaShortSaleInfo.com and explains the warning signs that a homeowner should watch for when looking for mortgage relief, like paying upfront fees. The report also provides information on alternatives the distressed homeowner can pursue if they want to avoid foreclosure.
“Upfront fees, signing over your deed, bankruptcy filing without the owners knowledge—these are a few of the many types of mortgage relief fraud.” HORN said. “I can share viable solutions that actually help distressed homeowners reach a common goal, which is to avoid foreclosure.”
