Mortgage Fraud and HUD Financing
|Whistleblower / False Claims Act||Debt Collection|
Plaintiff was a mortgage broker who was solicited for a kickback scheme involving HUD-financed mortgages. He alleged that the mortgages issued under the scheme often went into foreclosure, leading to false claims against the U.S. government for the mortgage insurance issued by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The case was dismissed because the plaintiff was not the first person to report the scheme.
