Defending Applicants and Others Accused of Criminal Fraud

Many commentators have identified widespread mortgage fraud as one of the primary causes of the current economic crisis. Federal and state prosecutors have responded by initiating new programs and obtaining more funding to aggressively pursue charges against individuals and businesses accused of committing this type of fraud.

Phoenix mortgage fraud attorney Bruce Feder has been defending clients against complex criminal accusations for more than 30 years.

Aggressively Fighting Serious Federal and State Charges

Bruce Feder defends applicants, brokers, appraisers, loan officers and other clients who have been accused of mortgage fraud and related charges, including conspiracy and racketeering, wire fraud, bank fraud and money laundering. Common accusations include:

  • False statements: Most mortgage fraud prosecutions are based on allegations of false statements on mortgage applications or other real estate transaction documents. False statements about income, liabilities, owner-occupant status, employment status and other factors may be considered fraudulent if they induce a lender to make a loan that would otherwise have been denied.
  • Flipping schemes: Another high-profile type of mortgage fraud is the so-called "flipping scheme," in which buyers, appraisers, "straw buyers" and other parties conspire to obtain excessive loans to purchase properties with no intention of repaying them.

If you have been accused of any type of real estate fraud, it is important to hire a lawyer with substantial experience in this highly specialized area. Attorney Bruce Feder has a strong track record of defending clients against federal and state mortgage fraud charges.
