Default Here's something to consider...

What if you could send a letter to people with a headline that read;


Now...I've never done this BUT...I heard of someone who has. There's an old law on the books that states something like;
"Anyone entering the armed forces is EXEMPT from foreclosure proceedings during and until they serve their time in the military!"

You'd have to check with an attorney but, I know there's a FEDERAL Law that says this so...what I "heard" that has been done was...this person went to a recruiting office...found a young man who was joining the military...made an agreement with the young man whereby the young man would be assigned part ownership in the house and at the end of his military term...sign the part back to the homeowner.

Any fininancial institution would be FORCED TO STOP foreclosure proceedings or incur the WRATH of the gummit.

Again...I don't know what law this is HOWEVER...I heard that this was done recently when a young man joined the military and all proceedings against the delinquent homeowner were stopped.

Worth going to a Law Library to check out.

You could do a service to these people, giving them some breathing room...beat out competition and collect a pretty nice fee.
