Four people have been sentenced in a large-scale real estate loan modification scam operating out of Pico Rivera.
Sergeant Dana McCants of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Fraud and Cyber Crimes Bureau said that his agency’s investigation into “Safe Haven,” aka “Your Dreams Come True,” showed that the firm falsely promised distressed homeowners help in saving their homes. The company advertised on Christian Spanish radio stations (affinity fraud) and according McCants, reeled in over 500 Spanish-speaking homeowners.
Safe Haven Executive Director Alex Jurado received five years in prison, as did co-defendant Alex Canjura. Erika Perez and Oswaldo Flores each received 16 months in county jail.
