Un-Real Estate: Forged signatures, Fake ID and other Phony documents

WWL-TV’s series “Un-Real Estate” by investigative reporter David Hammer has uncovered forged signatures, fake identification, and other phony documents being used by scammers to lay claim to property and sell it out from under the rightful owners. Some of the attempts involve sales through closing agents, but many involve quitclaim deeds, documents that anyone can file in the land records to transfer purported ownership interests, even if none exists and without any legal review.
