Pair Charged with Mortgage Fraud in Moorpark

A man and woman have been arrested and charged in a real estate fraud case  involving a Moorpark home.

Dominic Kardum, a prosecutor in the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, announced that Antonio Pena, a resident of Moorpark, and Claudia Xochitl Gil, of San Fernando have been arraigned in connection with loans totaling $500,000 for the mortgage property.

Antonio Pena, 39, was charged with two counts of grand theft and one count of money laundering as well as an enhanced charge of stealing in excess of $100,000 while in the commission of at least two felonies. He used the identity of a straw buyer to acquire the loans (loan fraud, mortgage fraud).

Gil’s role was to forge signatures on the deal, for which she was charged with with three counts of forgery and to fraudulently notarize the deeds of trust, which resulted in two more counts of fraud related to a deed of trust (notary fraud). Gil holds a California real estate license and was a notary at one time.
