Mortgage fraud became very common in recent years when home prices soared. Various means were used to take advantage of fast changing prices. We handle real estate fraud cases, including overvaluation fraud. Co-conspirators overvalue a home, take out a huge loan, and later default leaving the mortgagee with a home of little value.

So many properties were purchased or refinanced that paperwork was done hastily. You or a party related to you may have greatly overstated their income. This may not have been checked by the lender. Such "income fraud" resulted in countless foreclosures and prosecutions.

Experience With Bank Fraud Charges

Various schemes are used to defraud banks. Many involve bogus documentation of assets and collateral, forgery or false documents. Be aware that the bigger the operation, the more time and effort law enforcement will have used to investigate and build a case against you. It is urgent that you speak with a defense attorney as early as possible.

When Serious Penalties Are At Stake, You Need Serious Representation

If you have been investigated by the FBI or a state agency for mortgage fraud, the penalties could include heavy fines or years in prison. Attorney Scott C. Williams is a former prosecutor. He has more than 30 years experience on both sides of the courtroom.
