FOUR CHARGED WITH INFLATING HOME PRICES TO OBTAIN KICKBACKS

4 Charged with Inflating Home Prices to Obtain Kickbacks

Jesus Sira, 32, Nestor Urdaneta, 29, Maria Urdaneta, 32, and Vanessa Urdaneta, 28, Florid,a have been indicted on one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in relation to a mortgage fraud scheme.

According to the indictment and court proceedings, the four individuals participated in a mortgage fraud conspiracy in which some conspirators entered into agreements to purchase properties for amounts in excess of the original asking price. The conspirators then inserted false and fraudulent information about the various conspirator-purchasers on mortgage loan applications, or Fannie Mae Form 1003s, which were submitted in support of the loan requests.

Upon the closing of each sale transaction, the conspirators used a portion of the inflated loan proceeds to pay the seller the original asking price for the property. The remaining excess funds – the gap amount between the original asking price and the inflated mortgage loan amount – were then shared amongst the conspirators, who allowed the purchased properties to fall into foreclosure.

The indictment also charges eight related substantive charges. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. The indictment also notifies the individuals that the United States is seeking a money judgment in the amount of $1,848,750 collectively, the proceeds of the charged mortgage fraud conspiracy.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

United States Attorney Robert E. O'Neill made the announcement.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jay G. Trezevant.
