Fugitives in San Diego Mortgage Fraud Case Arrested

Two television stations report that two loan officers who worked at Creative Financial Solutions in San Diego and were fugitives have been arrested.

Rafael Santiago was arrested in connection with a federal arrest warrant charging that he and other Creative Financial Solutions loan officers schemed to “defraud and to obtain money and property by false and fraudulent means, related to mortgage fraud”. Others who have been arrested are company founders Abner Betech, Said Betech and Aviva Betech, as well as Angel Armendariz, an employee; Lucette Montane is still on the lam.

The federal complaint states that the Betechs and others founded the firm in 2005 and almost immediately began charging for and receiving commissions for loans they had failed to fund, obtained loans for unqualified borrowers, submitted false purchase contracts and phony loan applications, used misleading appraisals, and submitted false bank statements and income documents.
