Hi guys!! Ok, so I wanted to come on here and ask for you guys' advice for a friend of mine. Here's the HUGE problem.... He has a $300,000 foreclosure PLUS some credit cards on his account. The problem is..... the foreclosure is a house that his mother purchased when he was 18 and tricked him into cosigning for it because he had great credit. She basically told him that he was signing for the house in case anything happened to her... it would go to him without any issues. This is when he knew nothing about this type of stuff. He just signed the papers. He didn't find out until he was like 21 and went to go buy a house with his ex and found out he had a foreclosure on his credit. THEN...not only that but just about a year and a half ago him and his mother got into it really bad because he found out that she had opened some more credit cards in his name. He tried to dispute it with the credit companies but they didn't believe him because he was living with her and the credit card bills were the same address as his. as far as the foreclosure, he was told the only way to get it off his credit was to file fraud and he didn't want to do that because he didn't want to send his mother to jail. She's done this so many times and it really pisses me off. Her and her sister were doing it together, except her sister wasn't doing it to her own family members. Her sister actually got caught and went to jail for 2 years. This is a very touchy situation. I told him to let me help him try to repair his credit because I am doing pretty good in my journey but he is convinced that nothing can be done about the foreclosure especially. I would really appreciate all the help we could get on this subject!!!
