  • 1. From Home Mortgages to Payday Loans - Lending Scams Are On The Rise Loan fraud and lending scams have increased significantly in the areas of finance. Almost every type of loan industry now has its share of shady lenders. (PRWEB) September 30, 2005 -- Lending scams have been around for decades, but over the last couple of years have increased significantly. It seems no finance industry is safe from the avalanche of loan fraud and predatory lending practices. Even with a loan that seems reasonable, there can be subtle flaws in the fine print that can be enough to cause a borrower to lose their home or owe much more than they think they did at closing.

  • 2. aware of the tactics with loan scams in order to avoid being a victim. Most of the lenders to beware of are those who target people with bad credit or no credit saying they will approve anyone, guaranteed. An honest lender will not guarantee anyone a loan before the application process has begun. Research Sub Prime Lenders before you use them. Payday loans or cash advance loans have excessively high fees. However, some payday loan companies will charge extraordinarily high fees. They can charge interest rates as high as 900% APR and higher. Borrowers can get trapped in these loans when they borrow more than they can afford to repay quickly. When the amount due increases so fast, borrowers may never be able to pay off the loan, but end up too deep in debt to get out.

  • 3. There are home mortgage lenders who will target low income borrowers. These lenders have the intention of offering the borrower a home equity loan with a payment they cannot afford. The lender knows they cannot afford the payment, but will push the loan through anyway using unscrupulous means. Then, when the borrower cannot make the payments, the lender forecloses and robs the borrower of their hard earned equity. Victims of lending fraud have also been hurt by a practice going on of solicitors approaching borrowers with a "bad credit loan program" that is guaranteed if the borrower pays a fee of $100-$2,000 or more. Usually the "lender" takes the fee and runs. The borrower is left with no loan and their fee money is lost. It is against the law to charge a fee to obtain a loan like this.
