Scam du jour

Got a notice in the mail for a class action lawsuit sorta thing, in regards to my home loan. But this one smelled a little funny. Checking things out, it seems to be a Forensic Mortgage Loan Audit Scam:

In exchange for an upfront fee of several hundred dollars, so-called forensic loan auditors, mortgage loan auditors, or foreclosure prevention auditors backed by forensic attorneys offer to review your mortgage loan documents to determine whether your lender complied with state and federal mortgage lending laws.

Apparently, the CA Bar Association is looking into the matter, though I was creeped out by the fact that the CBA is getting information through a webform on So the personally identifying info they got about me is somewhat suspect.
