Are There Housing Scams Out There?

FHA Common Question #43

When selling your FHA home, beware of rip-off artists and scammers. They do approach some people offering to "help". Sometimes this comes in the form of an offer pay off the mortgage or give you money after the house is sold.

What usually happens is your FHA mortgage goes unpaid, the home gets foreclosed upon (after the scammer collects rent for a while on your property-part of the scam includes a request that you move out quickly) and your credit rating is blemished. The important thing to remember in this situation is to seek professional advice before going into any such relationship with a third party. Unless you pay your mortgage, you may find yourself liable for the results of a deal with a third party.
