Avoiding Scams

Orange County Foreclosure Attorney

If you are one of the many families facing the prospect of a home foreclosure in today's difficult economic climate, you are probably have seen or heard a multitude of offers that seem too good to be true. Unfortunately, in most cases these offers are made by unscrupulous individuals or businesses that provide very select support. These predators capitalize on the misfortunate of others, causing them even more pain and frustration.

When you are in the middle of fighting foreclosure, it can be a difficult and often confusing experience. It is crucial that you work with an Orange County foreclosure lawyer during this time who can guide you away from scams and towards a positive and effective solution.

Common Foreclosure Scams

Foreclosure scams, whether they are targeted directly at homeowners who have received notices of foreclosure or if they are broadly marketed, often contain guarantees or promises that are far too good to be true. Some are designed to lure the victim into making several mortgage payments to the fraudulent party while the supposed counselor claims to negotiate new mortgage terms.

Beware of scams that do the following:

  • Direct you to cease communication with your lender
  • Request for payments via cashier's check or wire transfer
  • Ask you to pay up-front fees to "qualify" for government programs
  • Require signatures on documents you have not fully read
  • Require a fee for "short sale negotiators" with promise to expedite the process

Others entrap the homeowner into turning over title to the home. If you have been in contact with a company that claims to provide relief, or if you are looking for relief, we are here to help.

    "Awesome attorney"
    I recently filed for my Chapter 7 through Mr. Kevin’s law firm and I could not be happier with his services. All of my concerns and worries were eliminated when Mr. Kevin thoroughly explains the process of bankruptcy filing and court hearing. The actual court hearing is very simple and to the point, just as Mr.Kevin said. In all, i highly recommend Mr.Kevin as an attorney for anyone who is in need of financial debt relief. He is kind, transparent, and dedicated to his profession. I'm glad i have had a chance to work with Kevin.
