Avoid Foreclosure Rescue Scams
There are no fees to get help with a foreclosure in Maryland.
Some scam artists lure homeowners into signing their deed over and then take the home for themselves and others charge enormous fees without delivering any services at all. Do not pay a mortgage relief company for assistance. Don’t sign any documents without first getting objective legal advice.
Call your mortgage company, a state-approved housing counselor through Maryland Hope or call 2-1-1 for support
