Arizona ranks No. 4 in mortgage fraud
Arizona ranks No. 4 nationally for mortgage fraud, according to a leading monitor of the crime....U.S. Attorney John Leonardo called the Anderson-Plany scam another "reminder of the damage mortgage fraud has caused to our community." Arizona has ranked in the top five states for mortgage fraud on the LexisNexis Annual Mortgage Fraud Report since the housing boom, when cash-back deals became common. The deals, made possible by loose lending guidelines, revolved around speculators flipping houses among themselves every few months and taking cash out of each deal....We are all victims of mortgage fraud....

Arizona rounds up 38 for mortgage fraud over the past month
“Mortgage fraud ruins lives, destroys families and devastates whole communities, so attacking the problem from every possible direction is vital,” said U.S. Attorney General Holder. “We will use every tool available to investigate, prosecute, and prevent mortgage fraud, and we will not rest until anyone preying on vulnerable American homeowners is brought to justice.”....Special Agent in Charge Nathan Gray, FBI Phoenix Division, said, “The FBI’s Mortgage Fraud Task Force as a part of the Arizona Financial Fraud Task Force has continued to address mortgage fraud matters since 2008. Operation Stolen Dreams represents a second successful wave of indictments for the task force targeting individuals committing fraud in the housing market. The FBI and our law enforcement partners are committed to working with local, state, and federal prosecutors in combating mortgage fraud.”....Unlike previous mortgage fraud sweeps, Operation Stolen Dreams focused not only on federal criminal cases, but also on civil enforcement, restitution for victims and increasing cooperation with state and local partners....Each conviction for money laundering or conspiracy to commit money laundering carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, a fine or both....All of the properties went into foreclosure and in some cases bank short sales. The resulting decrease in home values caused a ripple effect across the Valley....For more information, visit www.stopfraud.gov (http://www.stopfraud.gov)....

Arizona Homeowners to Receive up to $6.6 Million in State-Federal Settlement with HSBC
“Arizona homeowners on the verge of losing their homes shouldn’t have to worry about mortgage companies taking advantage of them,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “This settlement holds HSBC accountable for its abusive practices and ensures HSBC will treat its borrowers more fairly in the future.” The settlement addresses abuses involving mortgage origination, servicing, and foreclosure. It requires HSBC to issue direct payments, loan modifications, and other relief for borrowers in need of assistance. HSBC must comply with rigorous mortgage servicing standards and an independent monitor will ensure HSBC complies with the agreement. The settlement includes Arizona and 48 other states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)....National Mortgage Settlement(NMS) reached in February 2012 between the federal government, 49 state attorneys general, including Arizona, and the five largest national mortgage servicers....The terms will prevent past foreclosure abuses, such as robo-signing, improper documentation, and lost paperwork....The settlement’s consumer protections and standards include: Making foreclosure a last resort by first requiring HSBC to evaluate homeowners for other loss mitigation options;....The agreement does not prevent state or federal authorities from pursuing criminal enforcement actions related to this or other conduct by HSBC, or from punishing wrongful securitization conduct that is the focus of the Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities Working Group....If you believe you have been a victim of consumer fraud, please contact the Attorney General’s Office in Tucson at (520) 6286504, in Phoenix at (602) 5425763, or outside the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas at 1 (800) 3528431.
