Turlock Couple May Have Used 3rd Party Bankruptcy to Forestall Home Foreclosure

Blas and Nancy Arreola, a married Turlock couple, have been charged with multiple counts of identity theft, recording false or forged documents, and fraud conspiracy by the California Office of the Attorney General’s Mortgage Fraud Strike Force.

The apparent goal of the alleged fraud was for the Arreolas to forestall foreclosure of their home by the bank. The high amounts requested by the prosecutor for the bails for Blas, 37 and Nancy, 34, are $412,000 and $201,000, respectively – indicated that the Attorney General’s Office considers this to be very, very serious.

Investigator Glenn Gulley of the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office indicated in his arrest warrant that the Arreolas were trained in their failed strategy by Jacob and Aide Orona of Highland, which is located in San Bernardino County. The name of the Orona’s business is Document Recovery Forensic LLC. The website, which appears to be dormant, offered “A Life Changing Event” to occur after the reader enrolled in a “Mortgage Note Redemption Seminar” that was held in July 2012. Homeowners would “learn how you may be able to receive a settlement of anywhere up to 80 – 120% of the original amount of your mortgage note.”

The tone of these seminars are related to the settlements the Attorneys General for the 50 states negotiated with the major banks over their robo-signing policies.

According to the Federal Reserve, up to 50,000 homeowners in Stanislaus, San Joaquin and Merced counties may have been entitled to compensation due to banking errors with respect to foreclosures, but the deadline for review was December 31, 2012.

The Arreolas paid several thousand dollars to learn the tactic of selling a percent “interest” in their two homes to people in bankruptcy. Such a strategy can block foreclosures but the people in bankruptcy never had any idea that the Arreolas and others piggy-backed on their bankruptcy filings and were thus unknowing parties.
