Work only with qualified professionals. People who want to defraud others prey on the uneducated and the naive. Avoid any possiblity of that by educating yourself and working with those who are licensed in the business.

The best way to protect yourself from fraud is to find a reputable real estate agent. If you still have questions about your transaction, contact a real estate attorney.
