“Almost always scams” – law enforcement cracks down on foreclosure rescue operations

by Mike on April 7, 2009

“The message is very simple: If you prey on vulnerable homeowners with fraudulent mortgage schemes, we’ll find you and we will punish you,” [U.S. Attorney General Eric] Holder said.

Scammers disguised as government programs

Other federal programs have given scammers an ironic opportunity to prey upon homeowners: they disguise themselves as government programs, using official-looking logos and bureaucratic-sounding names.
