Types of Mortgage Fraud
I defend clients throughout New York against all different types of mortgage fraud charges, including those involving:
- Using an inflated appraisal to take out a fraudulent home equity loan, then walking away
- Property flipping − Transfer of property several times through straw buyers or shell corporations to disguise fraudulent appraisals and make money off the resale
- Foreclosure rescue scams, in which companies take money through upfront fees, then do nothing to prevent foreclosure
- Loan fraud − Misrepresentation on loan applications in order to use fraudulent information to qualify for a mortgage loan
Mortgage fraud charges are usually brought in federal court, and they must be defended vigorously. I will use my over 30 years of criminal defense experience to contest the charges vigorously and make sure your rights are protected.
