FBI Steps In to Prevent Foreclosure in L.A. Elder Financial Fraud Case

A woman who said a self-defined “prophet” from South Los Angeles conned her elderly mother out of her home (elder financial abuse, real estate fraud) has taken her case to the media after OneWest Bank says it plans to foreclose on the home imminently.

Keta Davis has filed bankruptcy on behalf of her 86-year old mother Vistula Graham, to prevent the banking giant from making good on its promise.

According to Davis, her mother’s home was paid off until she met  Bishop LeRoy Dowd, who used Graham’s home as collateral to take out $800,000 of loans (title fraud).

In a strange twist, former LAPD officer Darcy Greenfield put the home in the name of her company and walked off with $261,000 as the beneficiary of a loan.

Although Greenfield and Dowd have not been charged in the Graham case, Darcy Greenfield is facing 10 felony counts for a real estate fraud case in San Bernardino County.

Meanwhile, OneWest says that while it is sympathetic to the Graham family, it still plans to foreclose, despite the fact that it has a letter from the FBI, which stepped in to help out Vistula Graham.

There are two earlier stories about Vistula Graham, Darcy Greenfield and Bishop Leroy Dowd that you can find in the California Real Estate Fraud Report by clicking here and here.
