Common Real Estate Scams in California
The real estate industry, unfortunately, leaves a great deal of room for fraud schemes and scams. Whether this was your first venture into real estate investing or you have been doing it for years, you could find yourself losing thousands of dollars to an experienced fraudster.
If you have fallen victim to a real estate scam in California, you may have the right to seek legal remedy. Here are several ways real estate fraud can take place:
- Common Law Fraud refers to an intentional misrepresentation of material facts with the intent to deceive, resulting in monetary loss.
- Unfair Competition is a business practice that is deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal, resulting in harm to competitors or consumers.
- Misrepresentation of Material Facts is a false statement made by a seller or other person involved in a real estate transaction that influences the buyer’s decision to enter into the transaction.
- Negligence or Breach of Fiduciary Duty is the failure of a person or entity to fulfill the duties of a fiduciary relationship, resulting in harm to another person.
- Breach of Contract is a failure to fulfill the terms of a contract, which can include a real estate purchase agreement or lease agreement.
- Fraudulent Inducement is the use of false information or promises to induce someone to enter into a contract.
If you suspect you have been the victim of any of these forms of real estate fraud, it is crucial to seek legal representation as soon as possible. The attorneys at Meyer Wilson have the resources, experience, and dedication to help you recover compensation for your losses. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Technology has led to advanced hackers with sophisticated real estate fraud schemes. It is easy to become a victim even if you are aware of scams and cautious with your investments. Many fraudsters are extremely good at what they do, conning victims out of millions of dollars each year. If you lost money in any type of California real estate scam, we can help you build an aggressive legal strategy against the perpetrator.
Our lawyers are nationwide leaders in investment fraud cases.
What to Do If You Suspect a Real Estate Scam
If something does not feel right with your recent real estate investment, seek an unbiased third party’s counsel. Go to a licensed financial advisor or real estate scam attorney and discuss the situation. A counselor could help you identify signs of a real estate investment scam, such as an unlicensed realtor or extravagant money-back guarantees. If a fraudster has already deceived you out of money, an attorney from Meyer Wilson may be able to help.
Upon contacting our law firm for assistance, we will investigate your situation and verify whether real estate fraud has occurred. If so, we will waste no time in bringing a civil claim against the operator of the scam on your behalf. You have three years from the date you discover fraud to bring your claim in California, or else you will forfeit your right to any compensation. Speaking to one of our lawyers can be the best choice you make after losing money in a real estate scam.
