Ligia Sandoval Spafford (Sandoval), 48, a Roseville resident, was sentenced to two years and three months in prison by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley for operating a scheme that defrauded distressed homeowners, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.
According to authorities, from 2008 to 2010, Sandoval and her former husband Martin Wayne Flanders, 51, charged their victims advance fees for a variety of “services,” including loan modifications, mortgage loan audits, credit repair, debt relief, bankruptcy filings, and a program to sell homes to “investors” with a rent-to-own option.
Ligia Sandoval paid the full amount of $115,065.00 in restitution to the victims. Flanders was sentenced last years to six years and five months in prison.
