Tampa Criminal Defense | Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage fraud is a type of real estate fraud aimed to hurt the financial companies that lend money for purchasing property. The most common form of mortgage fraud involves fraudsters acquiring property and then artificially increasing the value of property through a series of buying and selling between the fraudster and someone in cooperation with them. A mortgage is then secured on the property based on the price that has been inflated artificially. Joe Caimano can fight to get the charge dismissed or the sentence reduced.

Other forms of mortgage fraud include:

  • Property Flipping
  • Silent Second
  • Stated Income/Stated Asset Abuse
  • Nominee Loans
  • Straw buyers
  • Fictitious or Stolen Identities
  • Inflated Appraisals
  • Foreclosure Schemes
  • Equity Skimming
  • Equity Theft
  • Affinity Fraud
  • Churning
  • Misrepresented Income
  • Misrepresented Assets
  • Occupancy Fraud
  • Chunking
  • Air Loans

In most mortgage fraud scams there are several key flags such as:

  • Loan participants or the motivations behind these
  • Information discrepancies
  • SSN discrepancies
  • Documentation discrepancies
  • Significant Cash Proceeds
  • Undisclosed Mortgages

Penalties for mortgage fraud are very severe, they may range from 1 to 10 years in jail as long as a fine from anywhere to several hundred thousand dollars to millions of dollars. Contact Joe Caimano today to be defended if you or a loved one has been charged with mortgage fraud.
