I am the victim of a loan modification scam. The scammer was an attorney in southern CA. I am a 72 year old women who is now homeless. I've done a lot of research to find out my rights. It appears I have NO rights. Not only did I lose my home to the scammer but I lost my credit, my finances, my personal belongings and my dignity. These scammers know what they're doing and they know the law is on their side. The scamming lawyer didn't go to jail, probably didn't lose anything but did lose his law license. I'm so poor now and can't afford to do anything. My situation sucks. Still is there anything I might do? Thank you

I am so sorry to hear about your situation.
1. The California State Bar has a program designed to help people who have been harmed by their attorneys. http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Public/Complaints-Claims/Client-Security-Fund
2. You can see if an attorney can help you bring a lawsuit against this lawyer. This may be a claim that someone will take on a contingency basis. The claim, however, is at risk because there is no certainty of a recovery.
I wish you nothing but the very best.
