Many mortgage fraud cases result in additional charges of fraud or money laundering. For instance, making a false statement on an HUD statement and then sending that statement through the mail may constitute mail fraud. Getting a mortgage from a corrupt broker may result in money laundering charges. The accused may not even realize he or she committed a crime until the investigation.
If you tell us you did not intend to commit fraud, we will defend you aggressively. We will review bank statements, mortgage applications, and other documents pertinent to your case. We will also review the sale and buying history of the house to determine if fraudulent practices occurred before you purchased it. If you are an innocent player in a larger mortgage fraud scheme, we can have the case dismissed.
