Common Real Estate Scams in California

The real estate industry, unfortunately, leaves a great deal of room for fraud schemes and scams. Whether this was your first venture into real estate investing or you have been doing it for years, you could find yourself losing thousands of dollars to an experienced fraudster. Many different types of scams are common in California real estate.

  • Escrow wire fraud
  • International wire transfers
  • Stolen down payments
  • Loan flipping or fraud
  • Bait-and-switch schemes
  • Foreclosure relief
  • Duplicate listings
  • Property title fraud
  • Rental scams
  • False real estate lawyers or realtors

Technology has led to advanced hackers with sophisticated real estate fraud schemes. It is easy to become a victim even if you are aware of scams and cautious with your investments. Many fraudsters are extremely good at what they do, conning victims out of millions of dollars each year. If you lost money in any type of California real estate scam, we can help you build an aggressive legal strategy against the perpetrator.

What to Do If You Suspect a Real Estate Scam

If something does not feel right with your recent real estate investment, seek an unbiased third party’s counsel. Go to a licensed financial advisor or real estate scam attorney and discuss the situation. A counselor could help you identify signs of a real estate investment scam, such as an unlicensed realtor or extravagant money-back guarantees. If a fraudster has already deceived you out of money, an attorney from Meyer Wilson may be able to help.

Upon contacting our law firm for assistance, we will investigate your situation and verify whether real estate fraud has occurred. If so, we will waste no time in bringing a civil claim against the operator of the scam on your behalf. You have three years from the date you discover fraud to bring your claim in California, or else you will forfeit your right to any compensation. Speaking to one of our lawyers can be the best choice you make after losing money in a real estate scam.
