Delta Homes and Lending Realtors Charged with Mortgage Fraud

In a new twist on mortgage fraud, the owner and six employees of Sacramento-based Delta Homes and Lending, Inc. have been charged with paying their clients money in order to make their loan applications more attractive to the lenders the group was defrauding.

Moctezuma Tovar, 42, is the owner and operator of Delta Homes and Lending, Inc. His alleged co-conspirators are Manuel Herrera, 31, Ruben Rodriguez, 34, Jaime Mayorga, 32 worked as real estate agents. Sandra Hermosillo, 49, was a loan officer and Jun Michael Dirian, 38 and Christian Parada Renteria, 35 were loan processors.

The defendants were charged with falsifying the loan applications of their clients (loan fraud, mortgage fraud) including providing fraudulent information about their clients’ financial status, citizenship status and employment status. They even deposited money into the clients’ bank accounts to enhance their incomes and would reclaim the money after escrow was closed.

The FBI, which investigated this case, believes the losses to lenders totaled $4 million.
