(Undated) -- Residents of Fulton County are being advised that keeping yourself from falling victim to mortgage and housing scams can be as simple as asking questions. Robb Hagberg is the Director of Fraud Prevention for Freddie Mac. Hagberg says if a situation looks too good to be true, it probably is. He recommends trying to stay away from working with third-party companies to lower your chance of becoming a victim of fraud. However, if you work with a third-party, always read every document before you sign and never pay fees up front.
