DA, Realtors warn of foreclosure scam

By
From page A3 | March 09, 2014 |

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig and the Yolo County Board of Realtors are warning local citizens about a recent email being distributed that states the recipient is being evicted from their home.

The official sounding “foreclosure notice” is designed to scare the victim into responding quickly, while you are upset and not thinking clearly. Cybercriminals attempt to get recipients of the email to open attachments that may contain computer viruses or provide them with a credit-card number. This is a scam designed to steal victims’ money and possibly their identity.

If you receive an unexpected or unsolicited email like this and you are not sure if it is legitimate, you should contact your bank and/or Realtor to ask them about it before you respond.

Scam artists from all over the world send fraudulent emails that look like they are coming from a legitimate source in hopes that someone will open them and inadvertently download malicious computer programs. Notices that appear on a computer out of the blue for unexpected things like package shipping, IRS tax refunds or credit card confirmations are red flags. Extra caution should be exercised.

For more information on ways to detect and report scams, including real estate and financial fraud, contact Derek Soriano at the District Attorney’s Office, 530-406-4503.
