Temecula High School Teacher Charged with Real Estate Fraud

A Temecula area high school teacher and his wife who co-owned a Fresno-based mortgage company were arrested October 1 and charged with 133 counts of real estate fraud. The $9 million real estate fraud is alleged to have occurred in Fresno, Madera and Riverside counties and perpetrated by Justin Dee Linder, 36, and his wife, Kelly Jo Linder, 31, under their company Summit Mortgage Services.

The Linders have been charged with embezzlement, grand theft, identity theft and illegally obtaining funds from a mortgage. Neither was a licensed broker, choosing instead to work under the license of a real broker.

Among his crimes, Justin Linder is accused of trying to get distressed homeowners to sign their properties over to him and borrow the good credit of at least one customer for Linder’s own use.

The Linders’ real estate agent Gregg Borchardt, 36, and their notary public Hector Secco, 67, have also been charged in connection with the case.
