Arizona AG Releases Free Video Warning Against Foreclosure Scams

From the Office of the Arizona Attorney General:
  • Stepping up his efforts to prevent home loan rescue scams, Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard [] announced the release of a free, five-and-half-minute educational video that provides useful information about home foreclosure and tips to avoid becoming a victim of scam artists.


  • The video will be distributed across Arizona to housing counseling offices, faith-based organizations, corporations and non-profit organizations. Residents can also contact the Attorney General’s Office at 602.542.2123 to request a copy. Goddard also noted that a new state law, which takes effect July 29, will assist efforts to stop housing scam artists. The new law prohibits "foreclosure consultants" from charging upfront fees for their services.
