Real Estate Fraud
The dream of home ownership remains one of the most important goals for many
San Diegans. Owning one's home or business is a source of pride and security, and
provides an opportunity for financial growth. Unfortunately, real estate fraud
scams can steal these dreams with a single forged signature or get-rich-quick
The San Diego District Attorney's Office is dedicated to the investigation and prosecution of real estate-related crimes. Attacking real estate crimes and other white-collar criminal activity is one of our top priorities, which is why the Real Estate Fraud Program exists within the Economic Crimes Division.
We will not let individuals empty the pockets of unsuspecting San Diegans. If you suspect you are a victim of real estate fraud, or have knowledge of such activity, please report this information to the District Attorney's Office as directed in this brochure. Through our collective efforts, we can protect individuals from fraudulent activity and provide a safe real estate market. With your help, the District Attorney Real Estate Fraud Program will make San Diego County a safe and honest real estate market for us all.
