When Denver real estate attorney Ronald Thompson contacts the Colorado attorney general's office about mortgage fraud or real estate scams, he knows his chances of getting help are slim to none.
"It is not the sort of thing where you can wait weeks or keep calling back to get somebody's attention," said Thompson, who has represented clients in real estate fraud cases. "Things are happening. Foreclosures are proceeding. Evictions are going on."
Thompson said he almost always ends up passing the message along to clients that he gets from law enforcement - the case isn't big enough.
