How Attorneys Steal From People in Foreclosure
I have seen many unfortunate homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments lose thousands of dollars, in some cases tens of thousands of dollars to unscrupulous attorneys. The main way attorneys steal from people in foreclosure is by charging exorbitant upfront fees and then stringing them along charging more and more fees as time goes on. The attorneys then don’t deliver on promises that they made to homeowners. Often, people who find themselves in foreclosure are understandably afraid and sometimes desperate and are looking for honest help–many unethical attorneys exploit homeowners in this situation for their own financial gain.
The best way for homeowners in foreclosure to avoid losing money to swindler attorneys is to never agree to pay upfront fees. Also, beware of anyone who makes a guarantee about an outcome that they cannot personally control themselves.
