There are some folks out there that want to take your money in a scam. The banking industry has some of these scam artists, and some of them offer what is called a forensic mortgage audit. A forensic mortgage audit is meant to convince you that you are paying for a service that will help you with your property, and that their audit will benefit the value of your property. In effect, a forensic mortgage audit means that a self titled expert is willing to look at the documents that allow you to own a property. The idea is that they will help you avoid foreclosure by looking at your mortgage. They will sell a target of their scam on the idea that they may be able to help find a way to save you from losing your property, for a fee. This fee, however, is not going to help the target of this sort of scam from losing their property. |
Since forensic mortgage audit scams are meant to convince the target of the scam that they are getting legal, certified protection against the loss of their property, there are a few ways for you to make sure that you are not going to be a victim of this scam. If there is no legal expert on hand, then you know that you are not paying for a service that will help you. In other words, do not rely just on what you hear from the scam artist. If you are approached by a person who claims they can save you from foreclosure, do not pay them until you have consulted a lawyer or real estate expert that you trust.
In the very unlikely chance that you are dealing with a forensic mortgage audit expert that can actually help you, then your trusted expert will verify any info the audit finds before you pay for any documents. If a forensic mortgage audit expert demands the payment for their service up front, just walk away. They likely will not produce anything that you can use.
If you have been the victim of a scam artist who did a forensic mortgage audit on your property, there is help. Be sure to find a law firm that has a strong track record of representing scam victims. They will take your case on and try to help you recover any lost funds, as well as sue for damages.
