This is why I use Jason E. Gordon because I know my clients are safe. REALTORS need to vet their vendors and team members.

Yeah I posted this article in the Peeps group! 

Pretty mind boggling . . . that the crook would have the balls, and that the bank didn't vet more carefully!

Candice posted this on AR Peeps. I can't imagine how it happened because 'supposedly' there are all kinds of checks in place.

Few more details I found: his bail is $50,000., he appeared remote by video, how did Texas bank fail to audit any files, $32 million in loans maybe there are more the FBI didn't find, he probably made about five million dollars in fees to borrowers, service release premiums, rate margins...

Committing fraud is easy. Not getting caught is hard. Thinking you will get away with it is stupid.

 I am glad that his crimes have been uncovered and that he will be prosecuted.

It seems like a plot for an interesting movie.

So much potential for fraud in this industry, best to always double check and work with people you know.

Thank you for sharing this article. Suffice to say, this behavior is deplorable and he will most certainly "do the time at Club Fed" for his fraudelent actions. 

In situations like these, I cannot help but imagine how someone with this ingenuity & creativity could've professionally thrived if he just played by the rules.  Pity.
