Thanks to a tip from one of our Subscribers for sending us this Article! It is a testament to the drum I beat with respect to the fact that Wire Fraud is alive and well. Anyone remember me harping about Anti Trust and the Sherman Act? Yeah, I have been piling up Gigabytes of data on the topic and have finally been hitting pay dirt! Each and every day Contractors and Order Mills have no idea what they are involved in. We are actually working on a HUGE STORY on many of the Florida based Shell Companies whom all have one unique Lawyer as their Registered Agent.
Washington, DC—(ENEWPSF)—December 16, 2013. A former repair contractor of a Florida property management company was sentenced to serve time in prison for his participation in a wire fraud scheme related to housing repairs made under a contract between Ocwen Loan Servicing LLC, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Department of Justice announced today.
“By paying kickbacks in exchange for contracts to companies they secretly owned or with which they were affiliated, the conspirators created the illusion of competition while illegally steering contracts to themselves,” said Bill Baer, Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division. “Today’s sentencing reaffirms the Antitrust Division’s commitment to prosecuting schemes that undermine competition in the VA Mortgage Guarantee Program.”
