More people than ever are turning to the Internet as a means of making money. While there are dozens of legitimate work-at-home jobs, there are even more scams. If you don’t know what to look for, you can easily fall prey to identity theft and, even worse, find yourself financially ruined. Here are five ways to sniff out a scam:

1.Money Up Front

Beware of any WAH opportunity that asks you for money up front. There is no legitimate work at home companies that ask you to put a down payment on any sort of kit or start-up package. If you run across one of these companies, you can be sure that it’s a scam. You’ll typically find these companies on websites with flashy videos, testimonials and an announcement for a limited-time discount that never really ends.

2.Social Security Number

If a company asks you for your Social Security number or bank information, run as fast as you can. You should never give your Social Security number to anyone over the Internet, nor should you provide your bank account or routing numbers to someone that you don’t know. Giving someone this personal information will set you up for both monetary theft and identity theft.

3.Lack of Information

If the site that you stumble upon doesn’t have any contact information, any company history information or lacks general details that the average person would deem to be important, you can rest assured that you’ve come across one of the many scams that are out there. Legitimate WAH companies are very up front about how long they have been in business, where their offices are located and the type of work that their employees perform.

4.Terrible Reviews

When you find a WAH company that seems legitimate, make sure that you Google the name of the company coupled with the word “scam”. This is the quickest way to find out if the opportunity is legitimate. People are quick to share their opinions, particularly when those opinions are negative. If the company is legitimate, you won’t find anyone complaining of being taken for their money or not being paid for work that they’ve performed.

5.It Smells Fishy

Use your common sense. If the site looks fishy, you’ve stumbled upon a scam. It really is just that simple. You’re a smart person and you know that if something appears too good to be true, it is. You’ll never make thousands of dollars a month “easily” or “quickly”. You won’t make hundreds of dollars a day by working for only 20 minutes. Use your head when you’re looking for a WAH opportunity.

For every legitimate work at home job, there are three scams. While you can readily make a decent income online, you’ve got to be prepared to search for the right job. By keeping your wits about you, making sure that you read reviews and walk away from anything that seems rotten, you’ll find the right job for you.

California Loan Modification Fraud Lawyer & Foreclosure Consultant Fraud Attorney – Damages For Scams, Ripoffs, Frauds And Statutory Violations

Posted on 05 September 2011 by admin

News Alert – On October 11, 2009, Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law Senate Bill 94 which took effect immediately upon his signature. This law now prohibits any person, including real estate licensees and attorneys from demanding or collecting an advance fee from any consumer for loan modification or mortgage loan forbearance services affecting dwellings with one to four residences. Advance fees inadvertently collected after October 11, 2009 must be refunded. Agreements entered into before October 11, 2009 are not affected and the below rules still apply to those prior agreements. If you already entered into an agreement with a licensed real estate broker for loan modification or other mortgage loan forbearance services prior to October 11, 2009 and that broker had received a “no objection” letter from the California Department of Real Estate, they are permitted to continue providing those services to you according to the terms of the contract. However, they are not permitted to collect any further advance fees from you. The California Department of Real Estate website states, “If you are approached by any person requiring up front fees for these services, do not pay them.”

 

Today, everywhere you look, there are commercials, billboards and roadside signs by entities offering to help you prevent a foreclosure of your home. Known as Foreclosure Consultants, some, if not many of these services and the persons whom they employ may be acting in violation of the strict regulations in California which regulate this growing industry. Others, may be outright frauds and scam artists.

 

The focus of these foreclosure consultants is anyone who is behind on their mortgage payments, which is now estimated to encompass one out of every ten homeowners. However, those who seek to defraud the public have their focus especially on the elderly, the newly unemployed, those whose properties are entering foreclosure and those whose payments have recently spiked upwards.

 

If you’ve been the victim anywhere in Southern California of real estate fraud or the target of an unscrupulous loan modification service, foreclosure consultant or someone acting on your behalf to modify your mortgage or cure your problems who is in violation of the strict regulations discussed in this article, call the Law Offices of R. Sebastian Gibson at any of the numbers on our website at http://www.SebastianGibsonLaw.com .

 

If you are a licensed real estate broker or agent and have either been wrongly accused of being in violation of the laws and regulations governing loan modification services and foreclosure consultants, or acted as such without being aware of these strict regulations and need legal defense, we urge you to call us at any of the numbers which you can find on our website.

 

To help you wade through the regulations in California on such services, here are some of the most important regulations. Keep in mind, that there is some overlap between foreclosure consultants and loan modification services. For that reason, the laws and regulations governing both services are included.

 

California Civil Code Section 2945 regulates foreclosure consultants. There is an additional requirement with respect to loan modification services, as discussed below. As with many code sections, the restrictions are complex and many. But here are the primary ways in which foreclosure consultants and loan modification services are regulated.

 

First, no foreclosure consultant and no real estate licensee is allowed to collect any advance fees for services as a foreclosure consultant once a Notice of Default has been recorded against your property. California lawyers are exempt from this prohibition.

 

Second, even if a Notice of Default has not been recorded against your property, in order for a real estate broker to assist you in obtaining a loan modification, or to otherwise negotiate a possible resolution to your problem, the broker must have you sign an agreement that specifically states what services will be performed, when they will be performed and how much you must pay.

 

Third, a broker may not have you sign any such loan modification agreement until it has been submitted to the Department of Real Estate for review and the broker has received permission from the DRE to use it and collect an advance fee.

 

Fourth, licensed real estate brokers who provide loan modification services without collecting fees in advance are not required to receive the DRE’s permission so long as their services are fully completed before they are paid by you.

 

Fifth, foreclosure consultant contract must allow the homeowner the right to cancel the contract until midnight of the third business day as defined in Section 1689.5 of the California Civil Code.

 

Sixth, foreclosure consultant contracts must provide an additional notice to the homeowner in 14-point boldface type stating when fees can be taken and notifying the homeowner that the consultant cannot ask you to sign any lien, deed of trust or deed.

 

Seventh, it is a violation for the foreclosure consultant to claim, demand, charge, collect, or receive any compensation until after the consultant has performed each and every service the consultant contracted or represented he or she would perform.

 

Eighth, it is a violation for the foreclosure consultant to charge any fee or interest which exceeds ten percent per annum of the amount of any loan which the foreclosure consultant may make to the owner.

 

Ninth, it is also a violation for the foreclosure consultant to take any wage assignment, consideration from any third party, acquire any interest in the residence in question, take any power of attorney, induce the owner to sign other contracts which are not in compliance, or enter into an agreement to assist the owner to obtain surplus funds prior to 65 days after the trustee’s sale has been conducted.

 

Tenth, an action may be brought against a foreclosure consultant for any of these violations and judgment shall include actual damages, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, equitable relief and exemplary damage of at least three times the compensation received by the foreclosure consultant. The foreclosure consultant may also be punished by a fine of up to $25,000.00 or imprisonment for up to a year or both for each violation.

 

The reason for these regulations are many. Foreclosure consultants have, in many cases, been found to charge high fees, require the payment to be secured by a deed of trust on the residence, and then have either performed no service or worthless services. Some foreclosure consultants have then been known to purchase the homes at a fraction of their worth shortly before the homeowner loses their home.

 

Additionally, some foreclosure consultants have required payment of exorbitant fees for services such as to obtain the remaining funds from a foreclosure sale when the homeowner could have obtained those remaining funds from the trustee of a trustee’s sale directly for minimal cost if the homeowner had sufficient time to receive notices from the trustee regarding how and where to make a claim for excess proceeds under Civil Code Section 2924j.

 

Among the services foreclosure consultants are known to offer, legitimate or otherwise, are to stop or postpone foreclosure sales, obtain forbearances from beneficiaries and mortgage companies, assist in getting reinstated, obtain extensions of time, obtain waivers of acceleration clauses, assist in obtaining loans and advances, avoiding or ameliorating the impairment of the owner’s credit, saving the home from foreclosure, and assisting in obtaining the remaining proceeds from the foreclosure of the residence. If a foreclosure consultant promises any of these services, he or she is bound by Civil Code Section 2945 discussed above.

 

If you are dealing with a loan modification service, even one with a contract which has been submitted to the DRE and the broker has received permission to use it and collect an advance fee, if the real estate broker does not follow the strict procedures for handling the advance fee as contained in California Business & Professions Code Section 10146, the agent will be presumed to have violated Sections 506 and 506a of the Penal Code and the homeowner may recover treble damages for amounts misapplied and shall also be entitled to reasonable attorney fees in any action to recover those amounts.

 

Representatives of foreclosure consultants must be bonded real estate licensees. Foreclosure consultants must also be bonded and registered with the California Department of Justice (and submit advertising and promotional materials) and the homeowner must be provided with written proof that the consultant’s representative has a valid California real estate sales license, and is bonded in an amount equal to at least twice the fair market value of the property in question. If the foreclosure consultant performs any activities which include negotiating loans or performing services in connection with real property loans, the consultant must also be a real estate licensee.

 

While real estate agents are in some respects exempt from the foreclosure consultant regulations contained in Civil Code Section 2945, they are subject to it’s regulations under certain circumstances and it is in those circumstances that a real estate agent can be in violation of the Act. If they collect fees once a Notice of Default has been recorded, if they collect advance fees before acts have been performed, if they acquire an interest in a residence in foreclosure, if they assist the owner in obtaining the remaining proceeds from the foreclosure sale, or if they make a direct loan for a residence in foreclosure, they may be in violation of the foreclosure consultant laws.

 

A real estate broker cannot collect an advance fee under California Business and Professions Code Section 10026 unless the broker has submitted to the California Department of Real Estate an advance fee agreement for approval.

 

A loan modification contract, even one with a licensed real estate broker, for their assistance in working out a loan modification or negotiating another resolution of your problem must still state what services will be performed, when they will be performed and exactly how much you must pay. If the fees are to be collected in advance, the contract must be pre-approved by the Department of Real Estate.

If you have lost money or your house to a foreclosure consultant or loan modification service as a result of their wrongdoing, we can assist you in pursuing the parties who victimized you and in some instances, we may be able to seek not only any moneys paid to them, but also, in some cases, your other actual damages, equitable relief, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs and punitive damages of three times the compensation received or misapplied by the foreclosure consultant or loan modification service who contracted with you.

Foreclosure Info – Tips For Avoiding Foreclosure Scams

Posted on 04 September 2011 by admin

As foreclosures are on the rise, so are the scams that commit to “rescuing” the homeowner from losing their home to foreclosure. These scams just steal your hard earned money, destroy your credit record and eliminate any equity you might have in your home.

These foreclosure con artists use people who are dire financial straits. They know these people are desperate and are grasping at straws for answers to their foreclosure situation. People to target for these scams are not hard to seek out as mortgage lenders publish notices before foreclosing on homes. These con artists read these notices then contact their victims quite often even in person but more commonly by mail, phone or by email. They even go so far as to advertise their services on web sites. They make themselves sound official by giving them impressive titles like “foreclosure consultant” or “mortgage consultant.” They may call their services “foreclosure service or “foreclosure rescue agency.”

If you are facing foreclosure, contact your mortgage lender or any legitimate financial counselor to help you find legitimate options to avoid foreclosure. It is imperative that you carefully check the credentials, reputation and experience of anyone offering to arrange to stop or delay your foreclosure for a fee. The following recommendations can help protect you:

WATCH OUT FOR THESE FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS

Lease-Back or Repurchase Scams – Someone offers to pay off your mortgage and rent you residence back to you. This usually involved signing over the deed of your home to the individual. This will give the person the ability to evict you, raise the rent, sell the house or steal your equity. You are still responsible for the mortgage so if the individual doesn’t make the payment, your house still gets foreclosed on and you face the legal consequences.

Refinance Fraud – Someone acts as a mortgage broker or lender and offers to refinance your loan to a lower payment. They make you believe you are signing the documents for a new loan when in actuality you are signing over the ownership of your home. This opens you up to the situation as above.

Bankruptcy Schemes – Several scams try to abuse the bankruptcy laws. These are complicated schemes, so it is important to always thoroughly investigate anyone offering to help you with your bankruptcy. Anytime someone wants you to sign over ownership of your home, be very cautious.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM SCAMS

Always know what you are signing – It is important that you thoroughly read and understand what you are signing. Obtain advice if a document is too complex. Do not sign anything with blank spaces, errors or incorrect information even if someone promises to fix things later.

Get everything in writing – Verbal agreements are usually not legally binding. It is important that you get any promises or agreements in writing to protect yourself. Be sure to keep copies of anything you sign.

Make your mortgage payments directly to your lender or the mortgage servicer – Do not trust anyone else to make mortgage payments for you.

Be cautious about signing over your deed – Scams quite often require you to sign over your deed. Always get the advice of a lawyer or financial advisor before doing so. You do not want to lose your rights to your residence and any equity that you may have.

Report any suspicious activity to the Federal Trade Commission and to your state and local consumer protection agencies – This helps to prevent others from becoming victims.

HOW DO I FIND LEGITIMATE HELP FOR YOUR FINANCIAL PROBLEMS

Contact your lender as soon as you think you are unable to make your mortgage payment.

Contact a legitimate housing or financial counselor to help you work through your financial problems.

Feldman Law Center – Avoiding Loan Modification Scams

Avoiding a loan modification scam can be difficult, especially if you have not done your homework. Today, recent statistics show that one in ten homeowners is either in foreclosure or behind on their payments. This means there are millions of homeowners in dangerous financial positions, with millions more on the brink of chaos. There are so many loan modification companies in California, let alone America, that keeping on top of the illegitimate ones is impossible.

Here are some common loan modification scams being perpetrated throughout California:

The Disappearing Foreclosure Professional – This is the kind of person who promises the world, then takes a payment and finally just vanishes. This individual will perform little or no service, will take your money and will leave you with all the problems you had to start with.

Loan Modification Helpers – In this situation, a loan modification “expert” claiming they can negotiate directly with your bank. However, they never produce the results they promise. Sometimes, the expert will gain your trust and try to get you to make payments directly to them. Unfortunately, this loan modification scam can take quite a bit of your money.

Sale and Leaseback Scams – There are people out there claiming to be able to bail you out of a jam. You sign over your house to the scam artist and then pay that person rent. They then claim that they will sell the house back to you at a bargain price later. Of course, being that this is a scam, these people often sell the house out from under the former owner, and they don’t tell the current occupants. What winds up happening is that you rent the home you used to own, then the home gets sold and you are left homeless.

Books and Seminars – While attending a loan modification seminar, or buying a “do your own loan modification” book is not necessarily a scam, they can be misleading. Good writers and good public speakers can often portray a scenario as being much easier than it really is. For example, the loan modification process is complex, and there is quite a bit on the line for you and your family. A loan modification seminar or loan modification book will suggest that it is a simple process that you can handle all on your own. However, without a solid understanding of real estate, mortgages, foreclosure, the courts and lenders, doing a loan modification on your own is extremely difficult. You wind up exposing yourself to all kinds of mistakes, and without someone helping you there is a great chance you could be taken advantage of by a lender.

Finding a quality loan modification company is important. The Feldman Law Center has been around for many years, and we are constantly helping people who are facing foreclosure and other financial challenges. If you are afraid of losing your home, a California loan modification attorney can walk you through the loan modification process, negotiate with lenders and help keep you in your home, where you belong.

Home Loan Modification Scams

Posted on 09 March 2011 by admin

There is a lot of talk today about unfair loan modifications. In this economy, mortgage loan modification is a good option for many people struggling to repay their debts, but reports of predatory modification companies have some homeowners afraid to act.  Some individuals have been taken advantage of, particularly in the California loan modification scams, by companies who take their money and provide no results.  With the help of qualified, respected attorneys like those at Feldman Law Center, however, home loan modifications can save borrowers from a lifetime of unmanageable debt.

There are many options for loan modification, and it is wise to seek out the best possible loan modification advice.  For example, you may be wondering about federal loan modification law.  The FDIC loan modification program may be able to help you, but it may not.  Unethical modification companies may not tell you about all of your options, preferring instead to make empty promises and return nothing. The attorneys at Feldman Law Center, however, know exactly which homeowners can be helped by federal loan modification and will gladly recommend government assistance if that is what is right for your situation.  More likely, however, you will need to consider other options, as the FDIC’s loan modification program promises help to only to a specific segment of homeowners.

If you are struggling to make ends meet and saddled with unrealistic payments, principle reduction, rate reduction, or another form of modification to your loan may be possible without federal assistance.  This indeed ought to be a key indicator of the trustworthiness of any loan modification company.  It is crucial to examine your own specific situation to determine what kind of help would be most beneficial to you.  Any company that charges an unwieldy up front fee with no apparent concern for your circumstances is likely to cause more harm than good.  Do not enter into any loan modification agreement with anyone unless you understand precisely how they will help, and they have demonstrated their ability to negotiate specifically on your behalf.

The loan modification process can be frightening, but it is possible to find debt relief in many situations.  Another key to avoiding unethical or untrustworthy loan modifications is to pay attention to what you are being promised.  Any company that can claim to be able to get you a specific rate reduction or to reduce your principle by a specific amount before judging your circumstances or negotiating with your lender cannot be telling the truth.  Without speaking to a lender about a specific loan, it is impossible to know how much can reasonably be promised in the way of principle reduction or interest rate reduction.

Hardship modification has become necessary for many people, and finding a trustworthy loan modification attorney can be very tricky.  You can, however, place your trust in the Feldman Law Center.  Our loan modification programs can provide you with help to get your debt back under control.  Unlike the predatory loan modification companies, we will not take any action that does not benefit you.  With loan modification help from our experienced attorneys, your unrealistic payments could become a thing of the past.

Mortgage Modification Scams: What To Do And Who To Contact

Posted on 09 January 2011 by admin

When an individual or family is faced with a possible loss of their home they often become emotionally and mentally distressed. After working so hard to obtain a home it is now being taken from them and these people are often left wondering what their financial future might look like and whether or not they’ll ever have the opportunity to own a home again. Individuals under this kind of emotional and mental stress are often open to the foreclosure alternatives that their lender may approve. Unfortunately there are individuals out in the world who seek to take advantage of people in their most desperate of times. The real estate industry and individuals facing foreclosures are not exempt from scams that are dressed up nicely to look as though they are a legitimate and legal alternative to a foreclosure.

One of the most dangerous scams out there that individuals facing a foreclosure need to be wary of is the mortgage modification scam. While a mortgage modification is a legitimate alternative to a foreclosure, any modification that’s on the up and up will always have been approved by a homeowners lender and is usually led/managed by a talented Santa Barbara real estate agent. Any individual or family who qualifies for mortgage modification and chooses that over a foreclosure must always keep this in mind as many scams make it difficult for those under emotional and mental duress to differentiate the two. For this reason alone every individual or homeowner facing a possible foreclosure should first speak with if not work with a Santa Barbara real estate agent. Real estate agents trained and educated on the subject of foreclosures will be able to tell a homeowner immediately whether or not the mortgage modification is legitimate. Those who forgo working with a Santa Barbara real estate agent are those individuals who most often fall prey to such despicable and unscrupulous scams.

As a courtesy and to better protect people facing financial hardship some Santa Barbara real estate agents now offer a free report on the truth about mortgage modifications and mortgage modification scans. These reports provide homeowners with invaluable information about the foreclosure in mortgage modification processes as well as information that will help them identify and avoid scams. In most instances all homeowner needs to do is provide a Santa Barbara real estate agent with their contact information and e-mail address and will then receive the free report. Even if a homeowner facing foreclosure chooses not to hire or work with a Santa Barbara real estate agent for the purpose of the mortgage modification, they should at the very least consider requesting such a report as to avoid being taken in an already difficult time.

Santa Barbara real estate agents that are Certified Distressed Property Experts are the first agents you should consider contacting. This is because those with this certification have been trained specifically to deal with the intricacies surrounding a mortgage modification and will help a homeowner avoid quagmires that sometimes plague the mortgage modification process. In addition to the protection you’re going to get from a Santa Barbara real estate agent working with one when you’ve opted for a mortgage modification will help ensure that a homeowner gets the best deal possible from their lender.

Should you be a homeowner who’s lucky enough to qualify for a mortgage modification in lue of a foreclosure, be wary of scams and always remember that any legitimate offer is going you made directly by your lender. Anyone claiming to be a representative of your lender when you know not who they are should immediately come under suspicion.

Russian brides, often referred as Russian mail order brides, are for real and the vast majority is honest. They will make excellent wives for the men lucky enough to win their hearts. However, agency scams and Russian brides scams are for real as well and can be very costly, both in dollars and feelings, to the men who weren’t able to detect them in time.

For any man who decides to find his future bride in Russia, the first step is to select an honest website which offers a reliable international matchmaking service. Here are a few tips that can help in doing so:

* Does this website display the name of their company? Do they have offices? If not, this should raise serious doubts to begin with.

* Can you tell who the owners are? If not, why are they not providing their identity? Again, this can raise serious doubts.

* Do they provide a telephone number where you can reach them? if so, give them a call to make sure it’s working and take the time to ask them questions about their women and their services.

The next step is to be able to recognize a Russian dating scammer. Here are 3 different types or Russian bride scams:

1. It can be anyone pretending to be a nice looking Russian woman seeking a foreign life partner. These scammers will usually sign-up on “free dating websites?where there is less or no control on whoever signs-up.

2. Another type of Russian Girls scams consists of websites who hire young and nice looking women who sit behind a video-camera and chat with whoever is willing to pay for it.

3. The most difficult type of scam to detect is when the Agency Scams and Russian Brides Scams team up. Here is how it works: the agency owners find women who are willing to put their profiles on their website and will encourage men in corresponding with them per letters. The money from the letters will be split among parties.

Follow these 10 simple guidelines and you will not become a victim of agency scams or Russian brides scams.

1. NEVER GIVE A RUSSIAN WOMAN MONEY UNLESS YOU HAVE MET IN PERSON AND YOU STRONGLY TRUST HER.

2. Take the time to choose an honest and reliable website to work with.

3. Russian women aren’t beggars. They are proud and have learnt to live without the excess. An honest Russian woman would never ask for money.

4. If a woman tells you that she’s in love with you after a few letters, it’s a really bad sign.

5. Make use of every letter to deepen your relationship. Describe yourself more in depth with each letter and ask for the same in return.

6. Once you share a good relationship on paper, make use of telephone or Video services.

7. If a Russian woman proposes you to vacation to some “neutral ground?such as Turkey, Egypt or Dominican Republic before you have met or shortly after you’ve met, it’s a bad sign. You should simply put an end to this relationship and report her.

8. Although, by tradition, Russian women are seeking older men for husband, please don’t overdo it. An age gap of up to 15 years is common but greater than that could lead to problems.

9. Google her. Type in her full name while trying her first name in different ways like Natalia, Nataliya, Natalya. If you find her anywhere on a scam site, please report her.

10. AGAIN: NEVER GIVE A RUSSIAN WOMAN MONEY UNLESS YOU HAVE MET IN PERSON AND YOU STRONGLY TRUST HER.

Russian women become the brides of thousands of men each year. Following these rules is a first step in finding a beautiful Russian bride.

How Internet Scams Make Money

(ArticlesBase SC #2543566)

Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/How Internet Scams Make Money





Let’s define what an internet scam is. It is a worldwide defrauding scheme by greedy and dishonest people who gain the confidence of their victims to get their money.

Your inbox probably receives several internet scams every week. Hopefully, thanks to your spam folder you can just delete them, but not always.

Let me tell you how internet scams make money.

1. They will first send you an email telling you are entitled to receive some great amlunt of money for winning an electronic raffle done by their company. Or one rich dying man who wants to give his riches to a grandson but the grandson needs you to be the guarantor.

When you receive a mail like this the first time you will be surprised and that big money is making your mind dizzy with the possibility of really holding it with your bare hands and you know it is yours. Beware. This is the same feeling many people have when they were almost conned.

2. Then you will reply immediately claiming that you want the prize or the inheritance money. This is their cue to know that they should start gaining your confidence.

They will say words to actually convince you of claiming your prize or the money they want to give you. This is a stage where you must search the internet for the names and phone numbers they are giving you. See if that someone exists or if that company exists.

3. Their next mail will give you choices to further make up your mind to get your money. They will give you four choices:

A. You will go to their place and get the money.

B. You will pay about 20% of the amount through credit card for the said “clearing fee” and the money will be delivered to you personally by an agent.

C. You will go their place and pay the clearing fee and you get the money personally. Their place is always from another far off country so you will have to spend more and choose the second option.

D. You will pay for the clearing fee and the agent to deliver the money right at your door step.

4. As you can see, all the options add up to you paying them for the delivery of the money to you. If you are wise you will not fall for this scam. There is not a single assurance that your “prize or inheritance” will be given to you.

Think in legal terms. If someone is a stranger, and would like to give you some amount of money, they will consult an attorney perhaps to talk directly to you and not through email. Don’t even think of giving them your money when you have a hint that it’s a money making internet scam.

Today, it is estimated that one in ten homeowners is either in foreclosure or behind in their payments. As the economic crisis becomes more severe and the recession feeds upon itself, people have become more and more desperate to find some way to hold onto their houses. With such conditions, the average member of the public is ripe for a scam and the and those who try to dupe you or use trickery know this. It is no surprise, therefore that the number of foreclosure type scams are on the rise.

 

If you’ve been the victim anywhere in Southern California of real estate fraud or the target of an unscrupulous loan modification service, foreclosure consultant or someone acting on your behalf to modify your mortgage or cure your problems who is in violation of the strict regulations in California, call the Law Offices of R. Sebastian Gibson at any of the numbers on our website at http://www.SebastianGibsonLaw.com .

 

If you are a licensed real estate broker or agent and have either been wrongly accused of being in violation of the laws and regulations governing loan modification services and foreclosure consultants, or acted as such without being aware of these strict regulations and need legal defense, we urge you to call us at any of the numbers which you can find on our website.

 

Those who are most likely to be targeted by persons attempting to perpetrate a fraud are the elderly, anyone entering foreclosure, people who have recently lost their jobs, families who have lost a loved one, people who have limited knowledge of English, people with limited resources, and homeowners whose payment amounts have recently been raised.

 

The moment you enter foreclosure, expect to be inundated with offers of help from many individuals with generic type sounding names, and some claiming even to have references from churches near you. These are, in most cases, some of the people you should stay away from at all cost.

 

The person who will approach you in this type of scam is more often than not, well-dressed, well groomed, and seems personable, kind, and trustworthy. Some utilize social skills to put you at ease such as their representation to be of the same religion as you, or even the same church, to have been in the military if they think that will put you at ease or feel more trusting of them, and others will claim to be working for non-profit organizations, or branches of the government.

 

These are some of the most common scams and what you can do to avoid being a victim.

 

1) The Disappearing Foreclosure Consultant – With a helpful sounding name, and armed with references and a kind voice, the person who contacts you promises to help you stave off foreclosure with just an up-front fee for their time. The only problem is, as soon as the money clears their bank, you never see or hear from them again. The soon-to-be phantom performs little or no service, takes your money and you are left with your original problems and less time to try to save your home from foreclosure.

 

2) Loan Modification Helpers – Unlike Santa’s Helpers, in this scam you pay a fee up front to the “loan modification expert” to negotiate directly with your bank, only here you don’t get a present from Santa. If the expert really gains your trust, you also make your mortgage payments directly to the expert rather than to the mortgage company. Both the up front fee and the mortgage payments go directly into the pocket of the loan modification helper with the white beard and the kind voice and by the time you receive notice that your house is in foreclosure, this elf has disappeared and is back at the North Pole.

 

3) Just Sign Here Scams – As you face the prospect of foreclosure, one offer of help seems far better than all the others because it allows you to stay in your home as they save it from foreclosure. Unfortunately, in the papers you sign without having a lawyer look at them, you agree, knowingly or unknowingly, to sign over the house to the person offering this help and still remain responsible for the mortgage payments. The person then either sells your house, collects other fees from you or holds onto the house and evicts you.

 

4) Sale and Leaseback Scams – In this scam, if you are a homeowner who still has some equity in your home, you will be convinced to sign over title in your home and pay rent to the scam artist with the promise that they can bail you out, cure your problems and that you will be allowed to buy back the house later at a bargain price. All of this can be accomplished, but only if the property is in the consultant’s name. The payments you make go directly to the scam artist and eventually you will find yourself holding the bag. You may also find yourself evicted when you can no longer make the excessive rent payments. If you have lost your job and are having trouble making your house payments, even if you have equity in your home, you may be tempted by this scam. And while you would be entitled to the excess equity in your home if the house is sold in foreclosure, when you fall victim to this scam, you will lose the equity when it is either sold out from under you or the equity is stripped away by the new owner.

 

5) The Trust Me, I’m Religious or I Was In The Military Too Scam – These people posing as Christians, former members of the military or members of whatever social organizations you belong to come complete with references from members of your church or with military haircuts and promise that by adding them to the title to your home, they can rescue you from foreclosure, and have your credit repaired. Having gone through your mail or your trash, they probably know all about you. There’s no need to see a lawyer, they tell you. Just pray with them or have a drink with them and swap military stories. Just be sure to hold on to your wallet, don’t give them any money and don’t sign anything.

 

6) Sign Me Up Scotty And Get A New Loan Scam – In this scam, you are told that if you add the nice looking good Samaritan onto your title by signing a Grant Deed or other legal instrument, (which you are told, you don’t really need to read) this friendly person can apply for a new loan, which, unfortunately, if approved, will leave you on the hook for both the old loan payments and the new loan payments, and any up front fees you pay for this service will disappear with this fraud.

 

7) Buy My Books, Take This Seminar And Make Millions Scam – You may see this offer on late night television, on roadside signs or even on billboards. Only this time, you are talked into buying materials that are full of worthless information that will do nothing to help you avoid foreclosure. Even worse, the materials you receive may offer advice that will land you in jail by telling you how to approach others in foreclosure and advise you to tell them you can save them from foreclosure. The trouble is, what you will be doing is either practicing law without a license or acting as a credit repair agency or loan modification expert without a real estate license and without an advance fee agreement approved by the Commissioner of the California Department of Real Estate and without being registered with the California Department of Justice.

 

8) The Short Sale Scam – In this scam, the “short sale specialist” who contacts you promises his expertise to accomplish a short sale in a small amount of time that will protect your credit. There is a fee of course that would have been better spent on groceries. When the real estate market was better, there were additional wrinkles to this scam that today are more difficult to perpetrate due to the difficulty of selling homes in this economy.

 

9) It’s Like Magic – Here the homeowner is told to sign one thing, but the homeowner winds up signing something altogether. In some instances of this bait and switch scam, the scam artist will serve as the notary as well. In conjunction with this and other scams, or in other variations, forgery may be utilized, and identity theft employed as well.

 

10) Want Somewhere Cheap To Rent Scam – Here the bogus homeowner or leasing agent takes your rent payment and security deposit and rents or leases you vacant residential or commercial property, that isn’t owned by the person you are talking with and if you are talking with a leasing agent, this “agent” has no authority to offer you the property for rent or lease.

 

11) How About A Nice Loan Modification Scam – As with foreclosure consultants, loan modification services are strictly regulated by California statutes. If you have lost money or your home to a foreclosure consultant or someone promising to obtain a loan modification or cure to your problems and they have violated these statutes, in some cases you may be entitled to any moneys paid to them, but also, in some cases, your other actual damages, equitable relief, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs and punitive damages of three times the compensation received or misapplied by the foreclosure consultant or loan modification service who contracted with you.

 

It is difficult, if not impossible, to recover your money when you have been the victim of any of these types of fraud. However, there are times when the persons attempting to defraud you simply don’t know better and are otherwise responsible citizens and business people who don’t know the law, or conveniently fail to research the law, and who may either have errors and omissions insurance or assets which may cover their indiscretions.

 

Such defendants may include real estate brokers, foreclosure consultants, loan modification companies and services and mortgage brokers.

 

These parties may be responsible if they made misrepresentations to you, committed fraud, charged you fees and collected such fees in advance for foreclosure consultant services, failed to follow the strict regulations set forth in the California Civil Code and Business and Professions Code or had you pay fees in advance for loan modifications under agreements that have not been approved by the Commissioner of the California Department of Real Estate. The laws in California are very strict as to when you may be charged fees for such services and under what circumstances.

 

If a person makes promises or representations to you without any intent to perform the services promised, and if you have been damaged as a result of your reliance on those promises or representations, you may have a valid claim against that person for fraud. Such promises may include a promise that they will be able to obtain a modification of your loan or to save you from foreclosure, and will likely require you to pay up-front fees that do little, if any, good.

 

Here are the five tips of advice we recommend to anyone in this situation being approached by people offering help.

 

1. Avoid any solicitations of help that come unexpectedly, by mail, e-mail and by telephone or to your door.

 

2. Avoid using any help agency whose name you find on roadside signs such as those which state “We Buy Homes For Cash” and those which promise to “Stop Foreclosure.”

 

3. Avoid paying up-front fees to foreclosure or loan modification experts.

 

4. Disregard anyone who tells you not to talk to your bank or tells you to avoid consulting with a lawyer.

 

5. Don’t sign anything without having it reviewed by a real estate lawyer.

 

Red flags to you that you are about to be scammed should include requests of you for any of the following: to pay money up-front before any service has been performed, payment by cash, cashier’s checks or bank wires only, transfers of title, actions to be taken immediately, power of attorney, signatures on grant deeds, signatures without any explanation or while under time constraints, signatures on incomplete documents, and mortgage payments to persons other than the mortgage company.

 

Other red flags include unqualified promises, offers that sound too good to be true, failures to provide you with copies of what you sign, oral promises that are in conflict with written provisions, refusals to put the oral promises in writing, oral statements that the provisions in writing don’t mean what they say or won’t be enforced, and warnings not to discuss the matter with an attorney, your lender or anyone else.

 

If you have a business or real estate legal matter in Palm Springs or Palm Desert, in Ontario or Rancho Cucamonga, Temecula or Murrieta, Newport Beach or Huntington Beach, Anaheim or Santa Ana, El Cajon or Carlsbad, Palmdale or Victorville, Long Beach or Santa Monica, Ventura or Oxnard, or anywhere in Southern California, our Palm Springs, San Diego, Orange County, Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo law firm has the knowledge and resources to be your Business Lawyers and Real Estate Attorneys. If you’ve been the victim of a real estate, business, loan modification or foreclosure scam or fraud, be sure to hire a law firm with experience in loan modification, foreclosure and real estate fraud in California and who will endeavor to ensure that your rights are properly represented.

Many scammers are out to defraud professionals who intend to make money online and work from home. It would be best to protect yourself from being victimized by those unscrupulous people.

 

Working At Home

 

There are still other considerations to take when you make money online and work from home. Aside from the nature and description of the job or activity you are doing, you must also prioritize avoidance of falling into common scams that hound home-based earners. Be cautious because there are just too many of those unscrupulous people who aim to defraud you of cash for their own gains.

 

It would help if you would get some scam-prevention information that would shield you from being victimized by the myriad of scammers around. If you make money online and work from home, here are some insights and tips on how you could spare yourself from being one of those online scam victims.

 

Avoiding Work-At-Home Scams

 

Beginners often fall as victims of so-called work-at-home scams. Scammers know that more people prefer to work at home especially due to the impact of the recent recession. If you are now yet familiar with the many opportunities for home-based professionals, it would be advisable to be more cautious especially when dealing with people and potential employers who introduce their selves as online professionals who are out to give opportunities to online workers.

 

Be resourceful and intuitive especially when dealing with newspaper and online advertisements, especially those that claim to help people earn money while being at home. Usually, scammers would require job applicants to send them certain amount of money for processing and other needs. Legitimate employers and online professionals who seek to tap other online professionals do not resort to having to ask people to send out money in exchange for online opportunities.

 

Clients Who Do Not Pay

 

If you are into providing online content to Websites, the main issue you should focus at is how to avoid being victimized by clients who do not pay for the services you rendered. If you make money online and work from home, it would be best if you would learn how to discern and identify scammers. You do not need superpowers to do that.

 

When you start to make money online and work from home through providing online content, it would be best to write on a per-project basis. You should collect payment for your services after completing a project. In most cases, writers ask for down payments before beginning one to make sure they would not be scammed.

 

Once you have built professional relationships with familiar clients, you may render your trust to enter more amicable and comfortable arrangements on how to make payment schemes more flexible and regular. It takes time to be able to do that. Meanwhile, as you continue to make money online and work from home, do not forget to ensure the ideal and high quality of your outputs.

9 Signs Of Online Money Making Scams!

9 Signs Of Online Money Making Scams!

Posted on 04 September 2010 by admin

Pin It

We all know there are more online money making scams out there, than the real thing itself. God knows how many times i have been a victim of scammers in the past 7 years that i have been making money online (or at least trying to;). So, i thought it might be helpful to write a list of warning signs for those of you, who are not familiar with the whole thing yet, and are just beginning to venture into the world of making money online. This will save you some hard earned cash and wasted time looking for legitimate ways to make money online. Please keep in mind, these are not facts, just my personal opinion from my past experiences. With that said, here are some telltale signs of online money making scams that should raise your red flag.

Big Money
This is the biggest sign that should raise your red flag. I mean if a site is promising you $5 for a click on a link, or a program promising you make thousands of dollars in a week or while you sleep, of course its a scam. If that was the case, why aren’t they doing it themselves, instead of trying to make money selling you this information?…

Who Are You

If you cant find any information as to how and who to contact, or who is responsible for the site, turn around and don’t look back. An established business, always have its contact info up to date and easy to find, because they are not afraid of people knowing who they are and/or authorities coming after them.

Response Time
Before signing up, contact the site/company, and ask a question or two. Usually scammers don’t even bother to answer or respond to any email. Even if they do, it takes them a very long time to respond. Ask yourself if they take that long to respond to a question, how long is going take them to pay you (if they are even going to pay)?

Over Decorated

Scam sites for some reason tend to use a lot of flashy signs and big bold text (i know i make many internet marketers angry by saying this since they all have those flashy sites, but i believe if you have real information that will help someone make money or what have you, you don’t need to pull people in with over sized and colorful text. If there is big and colorful text about the amount of money you will make, rather than detailed explanation about how you will make that money, there is a good chance its a scam. Legitimate companies usually use a simple but elegant design for their site.

Fake Testimonial

Most businesses use testimonial which is a good way to promote. But, if you pay close attention, you can easily spot the fake ones. For example, a testimonial about a product that helps you make more money with your site says “…with the help of the x program i have made that much money on my site. Regards, bill billy  www.bill.com …”. If you check the mentioned site, 9 out of 10 times, either it doesn’t exist or if it does, no body by that name is responsible or have anything to do with the site. Although many scammers try to have everything in place, most scam artistes (if you can call them artists) don’t even take the time to at least make sure the testimonial information is right.

Too Easy
If its telling you “Make $2000 A Week, No experience Required, No Work Involved”, ask your self, what kind of job you can make that much money without any experience or putting any time and effort into it? While there are legitimate ways to make that much money in short amount of time, most of them require some experience and hard work, unless you have millions of dollars to put in bank and make money with its interest.

Email Offers
If you receive an email from someone you don’t know and its start with “dear friend” or something like that, and starts telling you how he/she knows this is the perfect opportunity for you to make money…. Do i need to say anything about this?.. Most people always look for ways to make more money, but i mean how could a stranger know you are looking for a way to make more money at this time, and how would he even know you? Sometimes email comes from Nigeria and other places as well.

Pay A Fee And Keep It A Secret
What legitimate company that you have worked for before, required you to pay a fee in order for them to give you more detailed information on how to make money? And why would they be afraid if you told someone about this transaction?…


Gut Instinct

The best way to recognize an online money making scam is your ‘gut instinct’. 99% of the time, what your instinct tells you is the truth. Most of us tend to ignore our instinct, but i have found in my experience that most of the time, my initial instinct was right.

Tips

Remember you can always use search engines, and specially related forums to find out about legitimacy of a money making program. There are many great forums about different methods of making money online, that you can use to ask people about a specific program.

There are many ways to make money online, and many great programs and methods, but always make sure you find out about ins and outs of it, before you get into it. A little time spent in researching and finding more detail in the beginning, will save a lot of money, time and frustration in the end.

Please remember, these are not facts, just my own personal opinion, from my personal experience trying to make money online and avoiding online money making scams.

Bad Credit Mortgage Company – Recognizing Mortgage Lender Scams

Bad Credit Mortgage Company – Recognizing Mortgage Lender Scams

Posted on 01 September 2010 by admin

Pin It

Mortgage lenders recognize the value of owning a home. Because some people will not easily qualify for a home loan, several lenders have begun offering home loans to tailor a variety of needs. For this matter, bad credit mortgage lenders have gained widespread popularity. The majority of bad credit lenders are sincere in their efforts to help you finance a home. However, some lenders are only concerned about their profit, and will not offer the best rate and terms.

Pitfalls of Having Bad Credit

Unfortunately, bad credit shuts the door on many home loan financing options. Because a large number of lenders prefer prime applicants, you may have to apply with several lenders before getting a loan approval. Some prime lenders do offer bad credit mortgages. However, their mortgage selection is slim

Having bad credit makes you susceptible to high rates and additional fees. For this reason, choosing the right lender is important. Prime mortgage lenders hate taking risks. To avoid any possibility of losing money, they generally charge bad credit applicants extremely high rates.

Fortunately, the majority of bad credit mortgage companies do not operated in this manner. Still, if applying for a home loan through a bad credit lender, keep an open eye for deceitful lenders.

Avoid Pushy Bad Credit Lenders

Be suspicious if a bad credit mortgage lender appears too eager. Some bad credit mortgage companies have very convincing tricks. They advertise fresh start home loans and low rate mortgages for people with bad credit.

Pushy lenders may persuade homebuyers to accept a creative financing home loan, and then fail to educate them on how the loan works. In this instance, homebuyers may agree to a home loan that involves a balloon payment, huge prepayment penalties, additional fees, and clauses that prevent refinancing. If the mortgage company is too excited, and the terms sound too easy, choose another lender.

Research Mortgage Loan Offers

Many people could have avoided fraudulent mortgage lenders if only they have done a little research. Not all bad credit lending companies are untrustworthy. Still, begin the search for a home loan with your guards raised.

Shady bad credit mortgage companies are praying that a potential homebuyer is unfamiliar with loans and mortgage rates. This gives them the perfect opportunity to take advantage of you. The only way to avoid common lender traps is to become educated on how bad credit loans work. Furthermore, never accept the first offered received, obtain quotes from multiple lenders, and check to see whether a certain lender has any complaints.

Beware of Casino Affiliate Scams

Posted on 26 August 2010 by admin

Pin It

Casino niche is one of the most competitive niches where many affiliates are making luxury incomes by promoting through casino affiliate programs. Niches which have lot of money circulating around do not just attract affiliates to enter the business, but also scams who try to share the market profit in illegal ways. If you are an affiliate who trying to make your fortune in casino field, beware of those affiliate scams and avoid them with your best efforts.

Almost all casino affiliate programs are free to join; hence those affiliate scams won’t ask you to pay during sign up for their affiliate program. So, how these casino affiliate scams cheat your money? Here it’s goes:-

Most casino affiliate programs share their revenues with affiliate through revenue share percentages. In order to attract new affiliate to sign up with them and promote their casinos, the casino affiliate program normally offer high commission, sometimes as high as 60% to new affiliate if the new affiliate manage to convert their traffic to real players who make deposit and loss to the casino. The gambling industry is very competitive, so there is no surprise if casino offer high commission to affiliates so that they get as many affiliates as possible to promote their casinos. But, the problem is among those affiliate programs which offer such an attractive commission sharing also include the affiliate programs offered by casino affiliate scams. These scams use you to help them promote their casinos but they refuse to pay your earning. You as a new affiliate who are looking to join casino affiliate program, sometime is hard to differential between the real affiliate programs and the affiliate programs run by casino affiliate scams. But if you do some homework before sign with the casino affiliate program, you might be able to avoid with the best possible to accidentally sign up with casino affiliate scams.

The best place to know which affiliate programs are scams is online forums where affiliates who do not get pay by those affiliate scams make complaints. These forums are a good place to find good and reputable casino affiliate programs as well. Join the forum and read what other people say about the certain casino affiliate programs. If the affiliate program get a lot of bad comments from other affiliates, it should be a sign of affiliate scams, don’t promote their casinos.

For casino affiliate programs that you have already signed up, a few hints to look for if the affiliate programs are affiliate scams:

1. Statistics Never Update

If you found that no matter how many people you refer the statistics always show 0 visitors. You can always test your banners by clicking it, and check on the statistics to see whether the clicks are captured. Check your statistics regularly and if the stats don’t change this may be a sign of trouble.

2. No Real Player Conversions

It’s fact that not everyone who clicks on a banner is going to sign up as a real player. The statistics show that the average conversion ratio is about 1% to 3%. If the casinos you promote have an abnormally low conversion rate, dump them because you are not making money anyway. Divert your traffic to an honest casino operator and earned commissions that you are eligible for.

3. The Check Never Reach You

The statistics are correct. You know you are earning good money from the traffic you drive to the casinos, and waiting for your check to reach you at the month end. But, the check never arrived and your emails to the affiliate manager are ignored. If you never receive your check, pull the banners out from your website until you receive payment.

Summary

Casino affiliate programs are money making channels for affiliates to make money online. The only thing you need to beware is casino affiliate scams that make use of you to earn them money but refuse to pay you your earnings. Don’t fall for these scams.

7 Ways To Identify Affiliate Program Scams

7 Ways To Identify Affiliate Program Scams

Posted on 25 August 2010 by admin

Pin It

Since the introduction of the Internet, work from home opportunities have increased tremendously and affiliate program is among such proliferating business opportunities. Becoming an affiliate makes way for individuals to earn money by promoting products or services of an Internet business for which they act as affiliates and in turn they get commission according to their contribution to sales. Nonetheless, even these programs can be deceptive, as there are affiliate scams that do not pay their affiliates for their contribution and escape without paying the affiliates but these scams can be avoided if interested people are a little more careful while choosing their affiliate programs.

Some of the things that can symbolize a red signal in the affiliate program are:

1. No support contact information on affiliate program’s website

Many affiliate program – scams do not provide any contact information. You cannot contact the ‘merchant’ of the product to check ask questions regarding the products affiliate program. First of all you should definitely e-mail the affiliate company asking some general queries. If they do not reply within a few days, it must be enough to raise your eyebrow. Also, the ones that do not have either email or contact number might be an affiliate scam.

2. Affiliate program charges you for becoming an affiliate

Genuine affiliate programs generally do not charge money from affiliates for promoting their products and services but if it does it may be a scam. Affiliate marketing is a win-win business for both product merchants and their affiliates, so merchants really want as much affiliates as possible, while affiliates want to make money selling merchant’s products.

3. There is no track record about a certain affiliate program

If there is any new affiliate program, the best way to check its legitimacy is after the period of six months. The genuine one with quality products will still exist whereas the fake one will collapse within this time. How you would check the performance of such affiliate programs? There are affiliate marketing networks like Click2Sell.EU that allows you to full track the record of such affiliate program with the – how frequently it pays, it ranks the merchants, etc. So you can always select only the best affiliate programs and be sure that you will be paid.

4. Try to Google for negative testimonials about your affiliate program

The testimonials about your affiliate program are good evidence that tell you about the legitimacy and pros and cons of the affiliate program but do not trust the testimonials that have been provided by the affiliate program itself at their websites. Online forums are a great place to find testimonials or you can always use a search engine to find some feedback about it.

5. There is no proper affiliate tracking system or network

These tracking systems are provided by almost all genuine affiliate company to its affiliates so as to check the commission that has been earned by them. If merchant doesn’t use a good affiliate network or doesn’t provide you with its own good affiliate tracking program, then you should not consider promoting a product at all.

6. Do not believe in “too good to be true claims” of affiliate programs

This is essential especially regarding payment of commission as it might be a scam. Too good to be true offers in most cases are ‘to good to be true’ and you might not get paid.

7. Stay suspicious about links getting hacked as other fellow affiliates They might change the affiliate id in the link and thereby transfer all your earned commission to their account. Use software like link cloakers to hide your affiliate ID to avoid such fraud.

Foreclosure Assistance: Learning To Spot The Scams

There is no doubt that more and more people have been forced into financial difficulties by the collapse of the US housing market, and are now being faced with home foreclosure. And with the rising number of requests for foreclosure assistance, there has been an accompanying increase in the number of foreclosure assistance scams. To make matters worse, those responsible for the scams not only walk away with their victim’s cash, they often walk away with the titles to their homes too.

Even if you have received a foreclosure notice, you should not panic and reach for the first offer of foreclosure assistance. You need to learn how to recognize the tricks which foreclosure assistance crooks use to swindle those in your situation.

The Equity Skimming Scam

The stress of being in financial difficulty can very easily cloud you judgment, and this is especially true if you are confronted with the looming loss of your home. One of the scams perpetrated by fake foreclosure assistance companies is Equity Skimming.

In the Equity Skimming scam, an unsolicited offer is made to find a buyer for your home so that you can clear up your debt s, and the individual making it requires you to sign your home over so that you will no longer be facing foreclosure, with a promise that you will be paid some of the profit when they sell the home.

But once you have transferred title to your home, the scammer will simply rent it out for a while, pocketing the rent while the bank proceeds with foreclosure. You have lost your home, and will remain liable for the unpaid mortgage, because transferring the deed did nothing to transfer your mortgage obligation. You are out not only whatever you paid the scammers, but your home as well.

Fake Counseling Services

Then there are the fake foreclosure assistance counseling services. They tell you that for a minimal fee you will be able to have their experts negotiate with your mortgage holders to get the foreclosure assistance you need They promise to relive you of the burden of having to deal with your mortgagor on your own, saying that their expertise in such matters will enable then to get you the best possible deal.

But more often than not, the only methods of foreclosure assistance they are capable of offering are those you could practice on your own, at no cost. The best they can do, if they even do that much, is get you a short-term grace period of lower monthly payments while you look for alternative sources of money to pay off your mortgage default. For more info see http://www.myfinancialbliss.com/foreclosure/foreclosure-assistance-18 on foreclosure assistance.

Do not accept any offers of foreclosure assistance which are not spelled out in writing. And do not agree to any agreement without first having it reviewed by an attorney familiar with foreclosure. Finally, if you suspect you have been targeted by a foreclosure assistance scam, contact the Consumer Fraud Unit of your District Attorney’s office without delay.

Money Tips – beat That Quote Scams Disclosed

Within these credit crunch times where most of us are finding it difficult to pay bills or worried about our jobs and possible redundancy, most people will be trying to find the most competitive deals they can find for gas, electricity energy supplier and auto or house insurance as well as lowering our weekly, monthly and yearly service costs and our other purchases.

Where do all of us Brits look? where do we know where to look? The majority of people see daily adverts on on freeview or tv and the majority try the site bing advertised. Unfortunately 99% of people don’t know about the hidden COSTS that is carried out on the comparison site itself. In 99% of every Quotation the buyer can make much better savings by following a few simple steps.

It’s a fact the UK comparison sites (ie. moneysupermarket make in excess of 30 million pounds plus a year from this what I call the ‘comparison site scam’. Every purchase earns them between 40 and 100 pounds every time someone buys an gas policy via there site? This is money that you can get direct instead of it going into the pockets of the comparison site.

Let us take an example and look at ‘which Switch’ they had well over one million customers last year, so take that number and an average of a minimum 10% of people get their GasSupplier through this comparison site that would give 100,000 hidden payments to the website owner at between 40-100 UK pounds. Let take an average of 50 pounds as a round number..

This gives them a profit of at least 15 million pounds alone from car insurance. This number will be much higher in reality.

Imaging though if the person in the street
like you and me can get this undercover cash for ourselves.

Imaging claiming this payment on your other house insurance and electric energy bills as well..

When it comes to the energy bills SCAM what they do is worth even more money and you can also claim this up to 4 times a year very very easily and it only takes a few minutes

Imagine if you could also save on all your weekly shopping and add in vouchers and discounts for things such as books and laptops.

Imaging getting a excellent deal and as a consequence of following some additional simple steps you receive back an additional 10% off the price? This is what I personally do every single time I purchase anything.

At last! The whole unbiased truth about saving £1000s a Year exposed without the use of comparison sites.
