UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA JACKSONVILLE DIVISION

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

vs

LORRAINE BROWN

EXCERPT:

LORRAINE BROWN,
the defendant herein , did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire, confederate and agree with others to commit certain offenses, to wit:

a. execute and attempt to execute a scheme and artifice to defraud, and to obtain money and property by means of material false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises, by utilizing the United
States mail and private and commercial interstate carriers, for the purpose of executing such scheme and artifice, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1341 ; and,

b. execute and attempt to execute a scheme and artifice to defraud, and to obtain money and property by means of material false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises, by transmitting and causing to be transmitted by means of wire communications in interstate and foreign commerce, writings, signs, visual pictures, and sounds, for the purpose of executing such scheme and artifice, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1343.

Manner and Means of the Conspiracy and Scheme and Artifice

8. The manner and means by which Brown, co-conspirators, and others sought to accomplish the purposes and objectives of the conspiracy include, but are not limited to, the following :

a. Beginning in or about 2005, employees of DocX, at the direction of Brown and others, began forging and falsifying signatures on the mortgage-related documents that they had been hired to prepare and file with property recorders’ offices throughout the United States.

b. Unbeknownst to DocX’s clients, the Authorized Signers were instructed by Brown and other DocX employees to allow other, unauthorized, DocX employees to sign, and to have the document notarized as if the actual Authorized Singer had executed the document.

c. Brown also hired temporary workers to sign as Authorized Signers. These temporary employees worked for much lower costs and without the quality control represented by Brown to DocX’s clients. In fact, some of these temporary workers were able to sign thousands of documents a day. These mortgage-related documents were fraudulently notarized by DocX employees even though the Authorized Signer did not actually sign the document.

d. These unauthorized signing and notarization practices allowed DocX, Brown, and others to generate greater profit and make more money.

e. After these false documents were signed and notarized, DocX filed them through the mails or by electronic methods with local county property records offices. Many of these documents, particularly mortgage assignments and lost note or assignment affidavits, were later relied upon in court proceedings, including property foreclosures and in federal bankruptcy court. Brown knew that these property recorders, as well as those who received the documents such as courts, title insurers, and homeowners, relied on these documents as genuine.

f. Brown and others also took various steps to conceal their actions from detection from clients, LPS corporate headquarters, law enforcement authorities, and others.
