The Government Is Cracking Down

trulia.com | December 15, 2013

Not all that long ago, it may have been profitable to commit mortgage fraud and chances are that you might even get away with a straw-buyer scheme or two because no one was really paying all that much attention.

But times have changed.

And it isnt just people that you have never heard of who are getting busted people doing the perp walk go as high as the CEO of one of the (now-defunct) major lenders in the US.

According to the Associated Press, more than 500 people have been arrested since March in various mortgage-fraud schemes across the country:

The Justice Department announced Thursday that investigators have made nearly 500 arrests since March in a major crackdown onmortgage fraud.

The nationwide initiative called Operation Stolen Dreams is the largest collective enforcement effort aimed at confronting the problem of mortgage fraud, Attorney General Eric Holder told a news conference. It involves 1,215criminal defendants in cases that uncovered more than $2.3 billion in losses.

One interesting insight released from the Justice Department was the number of different ways that someone can commit mortgage fraud.

In one scheme in Miami, the person accused of mortgage fraud targeted the Haitian-American community and said that she could help with immigration issues and could provide assistance with the manager of a government sponsored housing program.

In another scheme in Chico, California one of the larger homebuilders in that are was rebating back tens of thousands of dollars on each home sold to shell companies controlled by buyers agents.

And I am sure that the few examples I have read about only scratch the surface.

Mortgage fraud.

It just doesnt pay like it used to.
