Scams abound in foreclosure market

Foreclosue Sign on Top of For Sale Sign in Front of House

Americans have been hammered with news about the foreclosure crisis in the United States. It seems like every day there is another news report or newspaper article about mortgages in trouble and the number of bankruptcies cropping up across the country. It may have happened to your neighbor or a co-worker. In fact, you may be facing these issues yourself. Georgia is among the states hardest hit by this crisis. When your income gets tight and the financial challenges continue to mount, what do you do?

That desperation has led to a huge market for scam artists looking to cash in on your problems as a homeowner. In one case, two men were charged in federal court with offering home loan modification services while collecting fees upfront. The men never provided the services and claimed that they would assist homeowners with mortgage negotiations. That assistance never happened.

Scams involving foreclosure fraud have become increasingly difficult for regulators and government officials to tackle. However, contacting a licensed and experienced attorney to help you with your foreclosure issues will help you avoid getting involved in a scam.

As we approach a new year, foreclosures and financial problems may continue for some people. When that happens, an experienced attorney may be the best bet to protect your rights as a homeowner while presenting you with all of the options to help you plan your next steps. Unfortunately, these scams abound because people are hoping to take advantage of other’s desperation. Know, however, that there are legitimate and legal ways to potentially avoid foreclosure or delay it.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
