Cash-for-Keys Crook Arrested in Inland Empire

A common scam for low-level criminals is to break into vacant homes that have been foreclosed and then demand “cash for keys” from the bank, pretending they are legitimate renters.

This scheme worked well at least once for Quddusa Anderson, who collected $7,500 from one bank for a home located on Saintsbury Place in Rancho Cucamonga. But when she tried the same ruse again on a home located at Hitching Post Court, she was arrested for squatting and faces 12 felony charges. Her accomplice, John Smith, aka Ibarri Kermet, is on the lam for now.

“Although the laws are getting better and better with regards to real estate fraud, suspects are attempting to find loopholes in the system,” said Maurice Landrum, a senior investigator in the Real Estate Fraud Division of the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office.
