Sale Leaseback Scams and Foreclosure Rescue Scams are two types of scams that are popular when housing markets are doing well. Why? Because they prey on struggling people who have a substantial amount of equity in their homes. Particularly old people.
They’re really evil, but you can absolutely do something about it, as long as you take action as soon as possible, preferably within a year.
If you have older relatives who have been screwed by these sorts of deals, it is important to gather all of the paperwork as quickly as you can and call a lawyer to fix the problem.
