Huntington Beach Homeowners…How to Recognize a Mortgage Scam

How to Recognize a Mortgage Scam

You might be a victim of a scam if:

  • You are told you will get a federal incentive to walk away from your mortgage
  • You are asked to pay upfront for counseling
  • You are pressured to sign papers immediately
  • You are asked to sign your house over to a company or person who is not working with your mortgage company
  • You are asked to make a mortgage payment to someone other than your mortgage company without their approval
  • You are guaranteed a successful short sale or mortgage modification
  • They claim to be a representative of the federal government

If you believe that you are a victim of a scam, you should contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or visit their Complaint Assistant https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
