Hello Kay,

A foreclosure notice should have identifying info on it.

Basic things like:

The name of the lender
Contact info
Account number

If these items are absent it could be a scam.

Banks have their OWN foreclosure departments. The notice should come from them not some lawyer

Best of luck to you!

It is probably a scam. Who do you have your loan with? I would call them or look at your account online. Are you behind in your payments?

The only one who can Foreclose on you is the one who holds the LIEN.
They may enlist a Lawyer; maybe that's the norm in R,I,
but I haven't heard of it.
It also may be a SCAM; be aware of that.
I would suggest looking at your last statement from the Bank and calling them;
you didn't say that you weren't behind to them.

Hi Kay,

Contact the lawyer who sent it so they can let you know.
