Real Estate Fraud Protection Program

Alameda County, CA
Program Year: 2019

Abstract:
The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office’s Real Estate Fraud Protection Program is a multi-pronged approach to protecting vulnerable residents from fraud and preventing unscrupulous individuals from preying on elder and financially at-risk homeowners. The program seeks to cover multiple fronts through innovative education and outreach strategies. Keys to the success of the program include multi-lingual materials and proactive approaches that stop fraudulent actions before foreclosure proceedings, scams or crimes take hold, and the training of a wide array of professionals and residents on the issues surrounding real estate fraud and foreclosure proceedings. This program is easily replicable and will certainly be of value to communities and counties throughout the nation.
