Protecting yourself from mortgage and rental scams starts here.

COVID-19 has made housing security even more uncertain for Americans. Up to 21% of renters are at risk of eviction and the number of seriously delinquent mortgages hit its highest level in more than five years. In response, housing scams are on the rise across the country. 

That's why NeighborWorks® America has launched a national public education campaign, Stop Home Scams, designed to alert and empower you to protect your home, access trusted assistance and report illegal activity to the proper authorities in this critical moment.
