  1. Hi,

    One of the most common types of buy houses for cash scams allows the buyer of the home to make off with most or all of your equity. It begins with you transferring your home's deed to the buyer. The buyer may then have you make payments to him instead of the mortgage company, or he may have you move out so he can begin renting out the house.
