Real estate scams can be devastating to their victims, the consequences ranging from bankruptcy and damaged credit to loss of one’s home. Anyone can be targeted by these scams at any time, but often they are directed towards low-income individuals and the elderly, who are presumed to be vulnerable. Homeowners in foreclosure are also considered prime targets. Click Here for a list of the most common types of real estate fraud and how you can avoid them!
