The mortgage crisis has affected Nevada more adversely than any other state. With so many Nevadans unable to pay their mortgages and at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure, Nevada has been inundated by unscrupulous individuals offering various mortgage relief schemes.
The Mortgage Fraud Unit has responded by aggressively prosecuting mortgage fraud. Our typical cases involve perpetrators who claim to have “programs” that guarantee loan modifications, foreclosure prevention, or elimination of mortgage obligations. The offenders charge large, up-front fees, illegal in most circumstances, and then fail to provide the promised services.
