The expansion in the real estate market has allowed many Americans to become “equity rich.” They may not have much money on hand, but they may have equity in their homes worth several hundred thousand dollars or more. Unfortunately, this increasing wealth gave birth at home as equity in cases of theft, as more and more thieves increasingly finding creative ways to help owners of their equity, their homes, or both. A clever scam involves new companies that promise to completely “eliminate” an owner of the mortgage. For a fee of a few thousand dollars, these companies claim that the owner can have a free and clear title to their home without repaying the remaining debt. How does this scam?
This scam is a bit more complicated than other scams that often use simple forgery of identity theft. In this “mortgage elimination” swindle, the owner places his home in a climate of trust with the mortgage elimination of society as a trustee. The trustee files a long and tedious, frivolous, a letter of complaint with the mortgage company, giving them a mere 10 days to respond. If the mortgage company does not respond within ten days, and often they do not, the confidence that these claims are then free from the obligation of mortgage. Using a power questionable procedure, and then the confidence files with the share register for a local release of the house of the title. It thus appears that the house is now without a privilege.
The legality of this range of disorders and of questionable outright fraud. It becomes even worse when the liquidator, clearly stating the title of the house, took a home equity loan, the coffers of the audit, and is rapidly disappearing. The disorder often leaves the original owner of a pile of trial, numerous visits from the police and from the obligation to pay two mortgages. This scam is currently underway in some parts of the country, and is not yet widespread. The owners can easily avoid being taken by this scam by simply recognizing a simple truth, you can not simply give up without a mortgage obligation to repay the loan far. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it is too good to be true.
