Four More Indicted in Sacto in Russian Mortgage Fraud

In the ongoing investigation into a criminal conspiracy to defraud banks, U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced indictments of four more defendants by a federal grand jury.

Yevgeniy Charikov, 40, of West Sacramento; Vitaliy Tuzman, 40, of Citrus Heights; Nadia Talybov, 30, of Antelope; and Juliet Romanishin, 30, of West Sacramento have been charged with mail fraud. Charikov, a real estate agent,  and Tuzman, one of the straw buyers, have also been charged with money laundering.

These are the allegations: Charikov assisted in purchasing the homes, then reselling them to straw buyers at inflated prices. The straw buyers’ income was inflated on loan applications and they falsely stated the homes were to be their primary residences (loan fraud, mortgage fraud). Romanishin, the loan officer and also the wife of Charikov, approved the loans. Talybov was one of the straw buyers. All the properties were allowed to go into default and foreclosure after the defendants distributed the proceeds among themselves.
