A: Traveling to the land itself is not enough – it has been known to happen that the developer doesn’t even own the land. Consumers can guard against falling victim to totally fraudulent land deals or against being misled by sellers who are operating just within the law in offering a “deal” that just isn’t worth the purchase price. They can protect themselves by contacting their state’s land sales agency, state and local Consumer Affairs Office, Attorney General’s Office, Better Business Bureau and county licenses offices in the area in which the land is located. In other words, anyone planning to purchase unimproved land should use every resource available to him or her in order to protect themselves.
