Yet another foreclosure scam?

An agent forwarded me an email touting an upcoming event promoted by the “US Foreclosure Institute” which shares an office with the “US Foreclosure Defense Law Group.” One draw for the event is an appearance by cast members from the Sopranos.

Now, “law groups” that don’t name any of their attorneys on their Web site instantly set my sleaze-o-meter racing, as does this sort of foreclosure Web site.

You can read about the event, which is oriented to real estate professionals, in this Trib Local article. It’s being held in Palatine, a locale that has been plagued by foreclosures in recent years.

I could very well be wrong, and I haven’t done much investigation, but my educated gut tells me that agents who attend the event will get to see real crooks in addition to TV ones.
