Mortgage Fraud
What is the Attorney General doing to protect homeowners?

Attorney General Bondi is committed to investigating any business that deceives or defrauds a consumer in the mortgage or foreclosure process.

Consumer Tips:
  • Homeowners should NEVER pay any up-front fees and should avoid any high-pressure sales tactics. Fees may only be collected after services are completed.
  • Homeowners should first try talking to their lenders or a lawyer before contracting with any third-party company for rescue or modification services.
  • If a homeowner believes he or she has been taken advantage of by a disreputable company, he or she should call the Florida Attorney General’s fraud hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM or file a complaint online at myfloridalegal.com.

Additionally, many unscrupulous companies and individuals are taking advantage of the desperate situation our state’s homeowners are facing. These companies promise they can help save homes, then take outrageous up-front fees from our homeowners facing foreclosure. The companies often keep the fees, take no additional action, and let the homes fall into foreclosure.
