FTC Clamps Down On Foreclosure Scams

The Federal Trade Commission has filed two lawsuits against individuals and businesses falsely claiming to homeowners that they will stop foreclosure. One of the lawsuits was filed in Texas.

Some of the false claims made by the foreclosure scammers include:

“We are so confident of our abilities to provide you with a solution in stopping your foreclosure that we guarantee our services in writing to you.”

“We can stop any foreclosure regardless of how much is owed.”

“We have stopped foreclosures all over the country.”

“Special relations we have with many mortgage banks expedite case approvals within 24 hours.”
