MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAM CHECKS IN THE MAIL
In the last month, the FTC mailed over 1,400 refund checks totaling $1.25 million to consumers defrauded by a mortgage foreclosure rescue scam, and sent out claim forms to 11,780 people defrauded by illegal auto warranty robocalls. In the first case, the court found that homeowners got few, if any, loan modifications; indeed, many people lost their homes to foreclosure rescue scams after paying up to $5,500 for help. In the second, the FTC alleged that Transcontinental Warranty, Inc., hired a telemarketing company that made millions of deceptive prerecorded calls.
