Dangers to Senior of Mortgage Relief Scams
The possibility of losing your home to foreclosure can be terrifying for anyone, particularly for a senior with limited resources. Seniors on fixed incomes may fall behind on mortgage payments due to big medical and care bills or other emergencies. If the bank issues a default notice or begins foreclosure, “mortgage specialists” may approach the senior offering help. Sadly, some of these companies deceive the senior and leave him or her in worse financial shape than ever and may even take away the senior’s home. Deceptive practices like that may constitute financial elder abuse in California and the elder abuse attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. may be able to help you if you or a loved one is a victim of such a fraud. Call us today at (415)441-8669.
Many of these mortgage specialist companies convince seniors they can get the senior’s loan modified to reduce monthly payments or take other steps to save a home headed to foreclosure. Other scammers say they’re affiliated with the government or your lender and still others promise the help of attorneys or real estate experts. Unfortunately, many companies use half-truths and even outright lies to sell their services. They promise relief, but don’t deliver. Aggrieved seniors may end up losing their home to these predators
