Mortgage Fraud in Florida – Attorney General suit Largest Mortgage Fraud Case in the United States

The Florida Attorney General sued 10 companies and 15 individuals for their alleged roles in a major mortgage fraud scheme in September, 2008 precipitating and preceding widespread bankruptcies on Wall Street.

Given the number of defendants, the case may be the largest mortgage fraud case ever filed in the United States. According to the lawsuit filed here in Orlando, the ring obtained more than $37-million in mortgages for at least 60 home purchases and siphoned off more than $6-million of the proceeds for their own use. Approximately 50 of the houses later went into foreclosure.

The particular situation victimized the economy according to Florida’s Attorney General Bill McCollum. The group of white-collar professionals systematically defrauded banks and mortgage lenders, stealing millions for their own personal use and leaving a gaping hole in the system.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, starting in July 2005 and continuing through at least January 2007, three of the ring’s leaders allegedly defrauded lenders by recruiting “straw buyers” with good credit and using them to create false applications to buy homes throughout Central Florida.

Even more astonishing and frightening is the lawsuit, filed by the Attorney General’s Mortgage Fraud Task Force, claims the ring conspired with Realtors to artificially inflate purchase prices, thus enabling them to obtain larger mortgage loans.

Considering this type of fraudulent activity is happening nationwide with realtors, mortgage brokers, and straw buyers collectively conspiring to deceive the banking industry; the American economy could be bankrupted rather quickly without aggressive regulation and enforcement.

Artificially boosting the prices of homes and providing mortgages far more than the actual sales price with the buyer or a third party pocketing the difference is a federal offence. Unfortunately for the American economy, it seems this type of activity has been going on for quite some time.

The Attorney General’s office said there may be a separate investigation by the state Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which oversees the real estate industry. Thankfully, Attorney General Bill McCollum is aggressively prosecuting the fraud ring. This is precisely the type of aggressive legal intervention Florida and the American economy so desperately need.

Otherwise we would all be better served investing our dollars in a stronger, less volatile currency, with a more stable and regulated banking system such as the Euro or Chinese Yuan. For those with less intestinal fortitude, gold has proven a sure safe haven for centuries during economic decline and times of turbulence.
