Stanislaus County Sees Mortgage Elimination Scams

The latest real estate fraud that authorities are seeing are mortgage elimination scams.

Glenn Gulley, an investigator with the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office, says that con artists are targeting Latinos whose homes are in foreclosure. The victims pay a processing fee of $1,000 to $3,000 and are told they can get a new mortgage for 25% of what their current mortgage is. The criminals file a new conveyance, claiming that the loan has been paid off. Of course, the legal lender continues with its foreclosure proceedings and the borrower loses his or her home along with the fees.

Kurt F. Johnson and Dale Scott Heineman ran their mortgage elimination scams through the Dorean Group and were sentenced three years ago to prison terms of 25 years and 21 years for stealing from 3,500 victims across 35 states.

Last month, a federal grand jury in Los Angeles indicted Henrik and Hamlet Sardariani on charges they filed fraudulent reconveyances. If convicted, the brothers coud receive sentences of 115 years in prison.
