San Diego D.A. doubles prosecutions of real estate fraud

San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis told her audience during a recent public safety meeting that her office has almost doubled its caseload real estate fraud related cases. Her office filed 39 real estate fraud cases in 2009, compared to 20 cases in 2008.

The number of defendants, however, has practically tripled due to the focus on foreclosure fraud and loan modification fraud cases, which tend to have both more victims and more defendants.

Read estate fraud includes not only fraud in the purchase/sale of a home, such as intentionally failing to disclose material facts, but mortgage and loan fraud, appraisal fraud, foreclosure fraud, title fraud, escrow fraud, and now short sale fraud and REO fraud. The latter two crimes typically happen when the listing agent does not submit all offers to the bank or servicing company so that the offer of the agent’s own buyer becomes the highest or best offer. Expect to see many of these cases in the news in the near future.
