San Antonio Mortgage Fraud Lawyer
Defending Charges of Fraudulent Loans in Central and South Texas
Prosecution of mortgage fraud cases is a priority for the Department of Justice at this time. There is a wide range of punishment options available to the courts and this range depends on the scope of the alleged fraud, number of participants, and monetary damages sustained by the lenders. Because of the role of banks in the recent economic downturn, financial institutions with questionable lending practices who took advantage of homebuyers are also being prosecuted.
Sam Lock has successfully prevented prosecution of mortgage fraud cases at the federal level by representing clients in their dealings with the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The FBI’s Financial Institution Fraud Unit (F.I.F.) is usually brought in to investigate mortgage fraud crimes, including, but not limited to, accusations of:
- Property Flipping
- Over-Reported Assets or Inflated Earnings Reports
- Failure to Disclose
- Mortgage-Related Identity Theft
- Predatory Lending Practices (sub-prime/high interest rates, unreasonable service fees, exorbitant loan origination/settlement fees)
- Foreclosure Fraud
- Equity Skimming
- Disputable Underwriting and more
