Venezuelan Fugitive Charged with Defrauding Wells Fargo in $9 Million Mortgage Fraud Scheme

After eight long years, Napoleon Olarte, a fugitive believed to be in Venezuela has been indicted on nine counts, including one count of conspiracy, six counts of bank fraud, and two counts of making false statements to a financial institution, according to details provided by the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Inspector General.

Two of Olarte’s co-conspirators, Juan Jose Calle and Nancy Karina Coleman, have already pleaded guilty in the mortgage fraud scheme that cost Wells Fargo approximately $9 million.

Nancy Coleman worked as a mortgage consultant at Wells Fargo and accepted bribes and other favors in exchange for approving the fraudulent loans for Calle and Olarte, who allegedly ran a “rogue brokerage and escrow company” in California called Fast Escrow.
