Livingston, MT: The Imposters Among Us; Vacant Property Fraud

June 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

THE IMPOSTERS AMONG US, VACANT PROPERTY FRAUD
1 CE CREDIT | COURSE NUMBER 23.MAR.021.C

Scammers plot elaborate schemes to dupe potential buyers, property owners, and real estate professionals. One of their latest targets is vacant and unencumbered property.

They comb through public records and flag vacant parcels of land and properties without a mortgage or other lien. Then, they pose as the landowner, asking a real estate agent to list the property or apply for a cash-out refinance with a mortgage company, intending to disappear with the funds after the transaction is closed. Often, it will be months or even years before the fraud is discovered.

This course is not just about preventing property scams. It’s about preventing severe financial harm. It will arm real estate professionals and mortgage lenders with the knowledge, awareness, tools, and resources they need to protect their clients, customers, themselves, and unknowing property owners from the devastating financial consequences of these scams.

 

1 CE Credit is $5
There is no cost if you do not need credit, and you are more than welcome to attend.
