Merced County acts to fight real estate fraud

Merced County District Attorney Larry Morse has been running a real estate fraud unit since 2009. They are also working with a joint team comprised of real estate fraud investigators from federal, state and local investigators that was also created in 2009 by the FBI to combat fraud in the Central Valley. Fraud cases that span multiple counties are prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office; those that are restricted to Merced County are prosecuted by Morse’s office.

DA Morse notes that “While our local economy wrestles with the financial fallout from a real estate depression and thousands of homeowners are wracked with worry about losing everything, others have seized on an opportunity. Those of us in law enforcement know all too well that in every tragedy there are criminal profiteers that will seek to exploit the misery of others.”

Merced, like the rest of the country, is battling crimes from the real estate fall-out ranging from vandalism, squatting, tagging and metal stripping/theft as well as ongoing loan modification fraud and scams.
