Real Estate Mortgage Fraud - Bonnie & Clyde Behind Bars

The "Bonie & Clyde" of Real Estate Fraud
Caught andBehind Bars
by John Occhi

I was reading through my morning industry newsletters when I got a special alert on a story that I have been following. On the surface, it might be a strange story for a Hemet real estate agent to follow, but what can I say…I have the same law and order fascination that the rest of the country has. After all, why else would there be 3 different CSI programs and 3 different Law & Order shows eating up our television airwaves night after night.

This story is about a modern day ‘Bonnie & Clyde’, as they have been called by both the media and law enforcement. Call it coincidence if you want, but I find the humor in the fact that the day ‘Bonnie’ is sentenced to a mere 6 years for her part in the multi million dollar scam, Clyde gets picked up in Nashville, TN. While Bonnie got off with a light sentence for her cooperation Clyde is on the hot seat facing charges that carry a potential 400 year sentence for his mastermind work in the real estate fraud crime ring.
