Prevent Loan Scams

For Homeowners

How Do I Know if I am a Victim of a Scam?

The easiest way to determine if you are a victim of a loan modification scam or have been approached by a potential scammer is to just ask yourself two simple questions:

  1. Did anyone offer to help modify your mortgage, either directly, through advertising, or by other means such as a flyer?
  2. Were you guaranteed a loan modification or asked to do to any of the following: pay a fee, sign a contract, redirect mortgage payments, sign over title to your property, or stop making loan payments?

If the answer to either question is yes, report the potential scam now by calling 1-888-995-HOPE or by filling out the simple online complaint form.
