Financial Institutions/Banking fraud/Mortgage fraud
Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer Nick Mudd PLLC has represented numerous individuals and corporations under investigation for federal or Kentucky mortgage fraud. Federal and state law enforcement agencies are particularly aggressive in these areas because of federal involvement in the banking and mortgage industries through the FDIC and FHA and GSE (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) loan programs.
Bank fraud and Kentucky mortgage fraud are federal crimes punishable by lengthy prison terms. In many cases, additional charges of mail fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy or money laundering may be leveled, raising the stakes and providing prosecutors with leverage. Being indicted with these offenses can result in employment termination, professional license sanctions and other consequences.
Nick Mudd PLLC has the experience to represent any of the players involved in the banking/real estate game: real estate developers, realtors, mortgage brokers, bank executives, appraisers, residential or commercial property owners, and individuals or business owners seeking real estate loans. Kentucky Mortgage fraud cases involves issues such as:
- Appraisal fraud Collusion between lenders and independent appraisers to inflate the market value
- Strawman purchase Using a creditworthy “middleman” to obtain a mortgage on behalf of a buyer who has no intention of paying back the loan
- False statements Providing false or forged documents regarding income, employment or homesteading to qualify for a loan
- Foreclosure fraud Offering to “rescue” a distressed homeowner and absconding with the upfront fees or fraudulently taking title to the home
- Kickbacks Bribes to bank officials or mortgage company in exchanging for approving unsuitable loans
In many cases, homeowners, straw buyers, real estate agents or loan officers who have themselves been duped are caught up in a larger fraud investigation. Whether you are innocent or involved, it is important to talk to an attorney before making any statements to authorities. Your own words or any actions that do not follow the letter of the law will be used against you.
