The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office filed 36 felony counts against Anna Moskovyan related to real estate fraud on March 31.
In the complaint, Moskovyan, 30, is accused of forging signatures on grant deeds (title fraud) to illegally establish ownership of homes she had identified as having tax liens against them by the L.A. County Treasurer and Tax Collector’s Office. In order to receive the excess proceeds from when the properties were auctioned (foreclosed), Moskovyan then filed claims with the tax agency.
Moskovyan is also accused of two other schemes. The first is that she allegedly recorded fraudulent Mechanic’s Liens against properties which were about to be foreclosed on. Financial institutions then paid her to remove “her” liens so that the properties could be sold.
The last scheme alleged is that Moskovyan transferred two properties to herself by filing fraudulent grant deeds (title fraud).
Note: per the North Hollywood – Toluca Lake Patch, Anna Moskovyan remains in jail in lieu of a $1.24 million bail. The 100 or more properties on which she allegedly recorded fraudulent mechanic’s liens are located in North Hollywood, Valley Village, Altadena, Canoga Park, Canyon Country, Cerritos, Diamond Bar, Downey, Hacienda Heights, La Canada, La Mirada, La Puente, Lakewood, North Hills, Northridge, Monterey Park, and Valencia.
