Santa Clara DA Throw the Books at Foreclosure Consultants

If you’re a criminal engaged in loan modification fraud, don’t do it in Santa Clara County. The Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office will make you pay dearly for scamming people.

Amir Rashidifar, 28, and Mary Margaret Delvecchio, 30, have been convicted of two felony counts of Foreclosure Consultant Fraud. The pair were each sentenced to three years, eight months in prison and order to pay restitution of $312,450 to their 80 victims.

Rashidifar and Delvecchio operated Legal Support Services until complaints by former employees and victims were reported to and investigated by the San Jose Police Department. They were charging upfront fees of $3,100 to help people but providing no services. According to Civil Code Section 2945.4(g), they were practicing Foreclosure Consultant Fraud (loan modification fraud).
