Foreclosure Scams in Brooklyn

Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams has taken an active role in offering support to prevent homeowners from becoming victims to foreclosure rescue scams.

After teaming up with Attorney General Eric T. SchneiBP_Warning_Scamsderman, the duo sent out warnings to Brooklyn homeowners in prime areas like Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and other neighborhoods near the Barclays Center — areas that are being threatened by increasing rents and predatory developers.

“To help homeowners avoid these scammers, our offices are joining forces to raise awareness about this issue,” they wrote. The letter sent to homeowners also offers assistance and more information on how to recognize and report scammers.

The last few words of the letter are an invitation to a Mortgage Scam & Foreclosure Prevention Workshop at Brooklyn Borough Hall. The workshop will be held on Oct. 13 and more information can be found on The Peoples Website.
