Mortgage fraud is defined by the Federal Bureau of Investigations as any "material misstatement, misrepresentation or omission relied upon by an underwriter or lender to fund, purchase or insure a loan." Examples of mortgage fraud often include:
- Inflated appraisals
- Inflated income
- Straw buyers or financiers
- Equity skimming
- Property flipping
Understanding Federal Mortgage Fraud Charges
If you are being charged with mortgage fraud in federal court, you are also likely being charged with wire fraud, bank fraud or other type of fraud. This is due to the fact that there is no specific federal law regarding mortgage fraud. Instead, mortgage fraud charges stem from laws such as the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 (FERA), which actually allows the federal government to prosecute cases involving mortgage fraud as bank fraud.
The federal laws related to mortgage fraud can be quite confusing. If you are facing federal mortgage fraud charges, waste no time seeking experienced legal counsel.
