8News Investigates: ‘Grand Theft House’ – ROBO-SIGNING

8NEWS-

We’ve called it “Grand Theft House” for the past two years.

8News Investigative reporter AJ Lagoe has been exposing robo-signing—a form of mortgage fraud in the commonwealth.

Today a $120 million multi-state settlement was reached with the company behind much of the fraud we brought to light.

Virginia is set to receive $3.5 million as part of the multi-state robo-signing settlement reached today with the company behind thousands of bogus signatures and notarizations that appeared on foreclosures used to take Virginians homes away from them.

    False swearing or deceit constitutes a “serious crime” …

    IMPROPER NOTARIZATION

    The second instance of improper conduct involves notarizations. As alleged by movants, plaintiff’s counsel belatedly provided authorizations for plaintiff’s workers’ compensation and medical records without notarizations. When the missing notarizations were brought to Mr. Clarke’s attention, he suggested Ms. Reed have the signatures notarized in her office after the fact and without the signators present.

    The act allegedly suggested by Mr. Clarke could subject the actor to criminal penalties. False swearing or deceit constitutes a “serious crime” falling under the definition of Judiciary Law § 90 (4) (d), and a conviction therefor is grounds for professional suspension under Judiciary Law § 90 (4) (f) (see, Matter of Ballinger, 148 AD2d 152 [1st Dept 1989] [involving forgery of a notary’s signature]).

    Additionally, a notary public who practices fraud or deceit in the performance of a notary’s duties may be charged with a misdemeanor (Executive Law § 135-a [2]).
