As foreclosure rates
rise across the state, the Office of the District Attorney has
launched a public education campaign to keep people faced with
foreclosure safe from scam artists.
The campaign will arm
Tulare County residents facing foreclosure with the knowledge they need
to make informed decisions to safeguard their homes without falling
victim to deceptive practices or services.
In Tulare County alone,
there were 436 foreclosure filings in the first four months of the year,
compared to 212 in the same period last year — a 105.7 percent increase.
While such figures may continue to rise, the Office of the District
Attorney is committed to stopping foreclosure and real estate
Tulare County residents
who are facing foreclosure, or those who believe they are victims of
scam artists, should use the Office of the District Attorney
Real Estate Fraud Unit and the Office of the District Attorney’s Web
site as a resource to get questions answered. |Call (559) 636-5410.
