Protect Your Home

Dear friends,

We are reaching out because we are either currently working with you or have previously worked with you or a family member. We know how important your home is to you and your loved ones. We want to alert you that we are seeing a huge increase in scammers targeting homeowners.

WHAT IS HAPPENING:

Scammers know that homeowners, particularly older adults and Black and Latino homeowners, are struggling to pay their mortgages due to the economic impact of COVID-19 and more recently dealing with damages caused by Hurricane Ida. Scammers are working double time to take advantage of this moment and steal deeds or push predatory loans.

One homeowner we recently helped was receiving ten calls a day from a company claiming it could help them get current on their mortgage. Calls like these are scams, often pretending to be government-sponsored entities, which is confusing and scary for homeowners.

WHAT BROOKLYN A CAN DO:

We are here for you. Our foreclosure prevention practice is designed to serve low- and moderate-income homeowners in the neighborhoods with the highest rates of foreclosures in New York City. Brooklyn A attorneys can provide homeowners with options and legal advice and representation on foreclosure matters including defense against predatory lending and deed theft and scams. We can also help you determine if an offer is a scam or not.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Learn the signs. Do not trust any offers that sound too good to be true. Review our flyer of Scam Warning Signs.

Get help.  If you or someone you know would like to request the assistance of our services, contact us at info@bka.org or (718) 487-2300.
