That's how they all stay afloat. The FBI works with federal agency's like the Department of Justice and also banks. The FBI does get involved with Police Civil Rights violations, but these request comes from the Department of Justice or the President.
More recently, I believe at the request of Congress and HUD Inspector General, the FBI has gotten more involved with Mortgage Fraud basically from the banks perspective, i.e. loan and property flipping scams.
What the FBI is missing on this one, is in the case of Foreclosure Fraud, banks, lenders, mortgage servicers and attorneys work along with some of these (scam artist) real estate investors who steal innocent people homes right from under them.
I even go out further on the record and say that in some cases these real estate investors may be Field Inspectors that Litton hires out to break in homes and removed household contents that also purchase these same homes at auctions. I know of one case were these auction/bidders did not get financing for over (5) months to purchase a foreclosed home. The homeowner tried to recoup the home from them, but the mortgage servicer and the attorney both refused, even though title had not legally changed hands.
What would stop this type of fraudulent act, is if the court would not ratify an auction sale until the bidder/purchaser has legitimate financing. If the bidder can not settle his or her loan by (60) days, then the home should go back to the original homeowner. In many states, even if the bidder defaults on his or her loan, the court will not return home back to original homeowner, but only to the bank, lender or mortgage servicer.
With regards to the property and loan flipping, the original homeowner gets screwed because his or her property is auction off for penny's on the dollar or in some cases less than half of what the market value of the home is worth. The investors buy practically the same house for a cheaper price and with a cheap coat of paint, then in turn put it back on the market for twice or more than the auction price.
While the poor homeowner is lucky to walk away with penny's on the dollar, in some cases the homeowner gets nothing at all. The Auditors that are hired by the banks, mortgage services and attorneys are crooked to the bone racking up and overcharging unnecessary fees that suck up Sale Proceeds.
My question is why banks and lenders continue to loan money to these con artists, when they could have helped the poor homeowner stay in their own home. Why because "IT'S A RACKEET''.
