BEWARE OF SCAMS - HELP IS FREE!
- Beware of anyone who says they can “save” your home if you sign or transfer over the deed to your house unless you are working directly with your mortgage company to forgive your debt.
- Don't sign papers in exchange for a promise that someone else will pay off your mortgage.
- Never submit your mortgage payments to anyone other than your mortgage company without your mortgage company's approval.
- Beware of anyone who says that you don't need a real estate professional or title company when selling your home.
