Lawyer may be the feds next Mortgage Fraud Target


Tampa Federal Criminal Defense Expert notes that the former president of a mortgage company was sentenced to five years and three months and an officer was sentenced to three years and four months in federal prison for their roles in a $79 million Mortgage Fraud Ponzi Scheme. . In addition to restitution, they signed a forfeiture of assets agreement for another $79 million.

A lawyer may be the feds next target. Both defendants had their sentences reduced for the cooperation they have given the government. One defendant allowed federal agents to record telephone calls. The other defendant “wore a wire during a meeting with a Philadelphia lawyer so investigators could gather information about the lawyer being an accessory after the fact” according to published reports in the Tampa Tribune.

The banks lost $68.5 million and the government lost about $9.5 million between 1999 and 2001. United States District Judge, James Whittemore called the crime “a fraud of mammoth proportions.”
