Foreclosure Scam Alert! Beware of False Promises To Save Your Home.
Florida Attorney General’s office filed a lawsuit against two companies accusing them of misleading homeowners. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, that is most often, your intuition warning you it is.
Florida Attorney General’s office accused MGD Management LLC and CRS Marketing LLC who also is known as CRS Legal Management Group of misrepresentation. They are accused of marketing “STRATEGIC DEFAULTS”.
There is a difference between making promises about strategic defaults and giving options about strategic defaults. When we speak to homeowners about their plans for strategic defaults we don’t take any money from them and we tell them ALL their options and that there is NO guarantee of any particular outcome. The attorneys we trust do likewise.
These two firms were marketing this:
“Stay in your home for FREE for years for $300 a month! We stall your Foreclosure!”
The attorney general of Florida says this is deceptive marketing. They are correct in our experience because while many homeowners can even stay in their homes without making a mortgage payments sometimes for years- there is no surety this will happen.
But they are also making claims that homeowners can keep their homes for years without paying thier taxes, insurance and HOA Fees!!! And we know about not paying your HOA fees don’t we!!! Click here to read about what happens when you don’t pay your HOA fees!
We know homeowners who have not made a mortgage payment in four years while others are rushed through the foreclosure process in months.
Most of the time these attorneys who make these claims and take the $300 to $500 per month are not doing anything for that money. There is a backlog of foreclosure filings in the court system.
Attorney General Bondi said vulnerable homeowners need to be protected. She said that these companies preyed on Florida’s distressed homeowners who were already experiencing financial hardships. She went on to say that Florida residents are protected under the law from deceptive practices.
Broward County Circuit Court issued a temporary injunction and granted a limited freeze on the company’s bank accounts. The court ordered the companies to stop all the alleged misrepresentations.
