Posted By USFN, Friday, May 11, 2018

A national fraud scheme involving what is believed to be thousands of properties/loans throughout the United States (previously described in the Winter 2018 USFN Report; view those articles here and here) has been temporarily halted by the wheels of justice. Earlier this month, a U.S. District Court judge ordered an injunction against the parties to this particular scheme and, importantly, appointed a permanent receiver over the business entities involved. See below for the particulars to this case, as well as a list of alleged perpetrators. In addition, the first criminal trial is scheduled against the so-called “ringleader” in a Northern California county, presently set to proceed in late summer 2018. Additional authorities, both federal and state, continue their investigations.
