    12.03.14 Brooklyn Law School Hosts AG Schneiderman at Forum on Combatting Foreclosure Rescue Scams

    On Tuesday, December 2, Dean Nicholas Allard welcomed Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Public Advocate Letitia James, Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Affairs Julie Menin, and a host of other local and state level elected officials to the Subotnick Center at Brooklyn Law School for the “Combatting Foreclosure Rescue Scams: Taking Action Against Predatory Schemes” forum.

    The Office of the Attorney General used the forum to announce the launch of a new web-based app, AgScamHelp.com, to assist New York homeowners in avoiding foreclosure rescue scams. The app is designed to educate consumers on how to avoid mortgage modification scams, and enable consumers to report scams in real-time.

    “Many foreclosure scams claim to be government affiliated. The AGScamHelp app allows New Yorkers to check if those claims are true,” Attorney General Schneiderman said in his opening remarks.

    The announcement came on the heels of a report by the Center for New York City Neighborhoods, which also took part in the forum.
