Mortgage Fraud Prosecutions
Mortgage fraud prosecutions are on the rise and it isn´t just loan underwriters and mortgage brokers who are being investigated. More and more, it’s individual property purchasers who are being prosecuted by the federal government. When banks take a big loss in a property, they are looking for someone to blame and more and more federal prosecutors are helping them to investigate property purchasers. If you have been contacted by the FBI or any other organization in connection with the purchase of property, you need to contact legal counsel right away.
