Defining Mortgage Fraud in Los Angeles
Mortgage fraud in Los Angeles involves a material misrepresentation, omission, or misstatement that an underwriter relies upon in order to insure, purchase, or fund a mortgage loan. There are several different activities that can qualify as mortgage fraud in California. Those activities include alleged foreclosure scams, alleged fraud for property (where one person steals another person’s identity so that he or she can qualify for a home mortgage), and alleged loan modification scams.
Potential Penalties for a Conviction of Mortgage Fraud
A conviction for mortgage fraud can lead to numerous penalties. In most cases, mortgage fraud is a felony charge, and a conviction can result in incarceration, along with monetary fines. In some cases, however, accused individuals will face several counts of mortgage fraud and may face many years of jail time if convicted.
