The foreclosure crisis has spawned a virtual cottage industry of foreclosure rescue scammers, whose abuse ranges from unlawfully charging fees for phantom modification services to outright deed theft. This training will give a brief overview of claims you can bring on behalf of victims of such schemes. It will start with an overview of what foreclosure defense and modification services should look like, and what laws apply to modification services. Next, we'll survey administrative and legal claims you can make on behalf of your clients, ranging from breach of contract to elder abuse, to violations of fair housing laws, and the availability of statutory fees for bringinig such claims.

Lunch will be provided for this program. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. You can register:
