Scammers simply pick a house (sometimes a second home, rental or vacant house), then gather personal information from the internet or elsewhere in an effort to take over your identity and either assume the role of property owner or claim to represent you. The thief files the necessary paperwork to transfer ownership of the property to themselves, using forged signatures and fraudulent identification. They then sell the home or borrow against the equity.
