Two Arrested in Fontana for Foreclosure Fraud

Two men have been arrested and charged with 45 counts related to an alleged foreclosure rescue scam which prosecutors say cost $17 million in losses.

Stephan Andrew Easterly and Emanuel Percival were arrested at the offices of Fidelity Group Realty in Fontana. Fidelity has operated under dozens of DBAs according to the DRE‘s website. According to Deputy District Attorney Michael Fermin, most of the victims were in foreclosure and paid between $3,500 and $7,000 (loan modification fraud) to get either get their loans paid off (??) or monthly payments reduced.

Easterly and Percival are accused of holding themselves out as “authorized” bank representatives and signing and filing documents indicating the mortgages were paid off (title fraud). In addition, prosecutors said that Easterly made up his own checks to show the homeowners the loans were paid off.
