STATE’S ATTORNEY TAKES FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND APPROACH TO TACKLE MORTGAGE FRAUD
In response to the growing problem of mortgage fraud affecting so many communities throughout Cook County, Anita created a special prosecutions unit specifically dedicated to combating this crime. The State’s Attorney’s Office sought and received a $2.3 million federal grant to launch a dedicated mortgage fraud investigations and prosecutions unit.
Working out of the State’s Attorney’s Community Justice Centers, mortgage fraud prosecutors are conducting pro-active mortgage fraud investigations coordinating takedowns of corrupt appraisers and brokers.
