Loan Modification Scammers Busy in Los Angeles

It’s not secret that California is one of the hardest-hit states for foreclosures. It’s therefore also not surprising that there is no shortage of “foreclosure vultures” preying on homeowners in trouble. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and California Real Estate Commissioner Jeff Davi held a news conference this week to issue warnings to homeowners in English and Spanish to turn away “loan consultants” and the like.
Homeowner Jose Hernandez of Pacoima was approached by such a man outside his church, who promised to help Hernandez save his home for $300. The man disappeared with Hernandez’ money and did nothing.

At a recent foreclosure avoidance clinic held last year in Riverside County, men carrying clipboards and dressed in suits like bank executives were approaching homeowners waiting in line. They were arrested for attempting to represent themselves as working for the lenders that were there.
