Firms claiming to offer foreclosure services.The US Department of Justice has released warnings to consumers against people or start-up firms that say they provide foreclosure consulting services.

For example, some may offer you easy solutions like assuming a whole new personality or using another persons Social Security Number so you can have a new beginning.
