Paralegal Sentenced for Defrauding Mortgage Lenders - Over $1.8Million

Branford Paralegal Sentenced to Federal Prison

for Defrauding Mortgage Lenders Out of More

Than $1.8 Million

U.S. Attorney’s Office August 05, 2014
  • District of Connecticut (203) 821-3700

Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that


was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to 12 months and one day of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for arranging a series of fraudulent mortgage loan refinancing transactions.

According to court documents and statements made in court, POLVERARI, a paralegal, owned and operated various companies that specialized in preparing real estate closing documents and conducting real estate closings for attorneys.

After arranging six closings for residential real estate refinancing transactions between January 2007 and May 2009, POLVERARI kept the loan proceeds instead of disbursing the proceeds to pay off the pre-existing mortgage loans on the properties.

Two of these fraudulent refinancing transactions concerned loans on her residence, in the approximate amounts of $405,000 and $403,000.

The other four closings concerned loans on other people’s residences, which varied in amounts from approximately $231,000 to $302,000.

Lenders lost more than $1.8 million as a result of this scheme.

Judge Arterton ordered POLVERARI to pay restitution in the amount of $1,875,563.84.

On September 20, 2012, POLVERARI pleaded guilty to two counts of bank fraud.

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Henry K. Kopel.

Wow, how did she ever think that she'd get away with it? One year in prision doesn't seem like enough time to me for all the aggrevation she caused.

I hope she got some jail time as well.  I didn't notice it in the post.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) over 5 years ago

She may have thought that 12 months in prison is a small price to pay for 2 million dollars, Debbie, and was willing to do the time to pull off the crime.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) over 5 years ago

She received 12 months and a day, Gabe, followed by three years of supervised release. It wasn't enough.
