Two Flee to Israel after Indictment for Loan Fraud

A good way to look guilty is to flee, especially after being charged for a second time with bank fraud.

Los Angeles residents Aviv Mizrahi, 53, and Aryeh Greenes, 58, have both fled to Israel after being indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with a bank fraud amounting to $33 million. The indictments allege that the pair altered financial records in order to receive very large lines of credit, costing lenders $33 million. They face 34 counts that include bank fraud and making false statements on loan applications (loan fraud, mortgage fraud).

This is Mizrahi’s second time at bat with bank fraud: in 2012 he was charged with the same crime, fled to Israel and changed his name to Aviv Shoham Schwartz.

According to the Jewish Voice, Greenes was also a rabbi.

If they are prosecuted and convicted, both men face prison sentences of biblical proportions: 1,020 years for Mizrahi and 330 years for Greenes.

Read the original articles in the Jewish Voice and  SF Gate.
