Foreclosure Scamming in Contra Costa County

A landscaper recently lost his home to foreclosure, but not because he didn’t make his mortgage payments.

Elias Escobedo, 41, was sold a home by Rodney Alonzo Bullard in 2004. Bullard later told Escobedo that his credit was bad (but not bad enough not get the loan!) and that Bullard could clean it up. Bullard’s ideas was to use a straw buyer to “hold” the property and “park” the deed, they would refinance the home and take money out to pay the mortgage.

Bullard, who has been charged two felony counts of forgery and grand theft by the Contra Costa County D.A.’s office, has disconnected all his telephone lines.

According to the FBI, California ranks 4th nationwide in mortgage fraud, trailing Florida, Nevada and Michigan.
