Northern California Woman Arrested in Mortgage Rescue Scam

The wife of Alan Tikal, a man awaiting trial for running a mortgage rescue fraud scheme, has been arrested for continuing the scam after her husband’s arrest.

Tamara Tikal, of Brentwood (in Northern California) faces charges as a result of evidence seized by authorities from the Las Vegas office of KATN Trust, Alan Tikal’s business. So has another associate, Jan Kornfeld.

Federal prosecutors said Alan Tikal took in over $3 million from his alleged victims, using a program which offered homeowners in distress lower mortgages by (somehow) covering their current, more expensive mortgages.
