    Any reason someone like this wouldn't get jail time

    Unbelievable the stuff she got away with, and looks like was going to try to continue getting away with it had she not tried to renew her mortgage license.
    The first townhouse we bought, this lady was the mortgage rep for the company and we were very unhappy with her service. Looks like she struggled to make money in the biz, but figured out a way to work the system.

    Grifters.

    I would bet a pizza at Leaning Tower in Ankeny that the two knew about the obscure law, and she intentionally didn't sign the mortgage papers.

    Sounds like they are trying to game the system and got caught. There is a special place reserved for scumbags like these two.

    Re: Any reason someone like this wouldn't get jail time

    I'm pretty confident after reading the new information that the "hastily done mortgage signing at the mall" or where ever it was at was planned. Think this guy took advantage of his status as a big time builder and wives knowledge of the law to get the loan officer to "meet me now, it's the only time I have free".

    Read the attached form from the person filing the complaint. There's not too many people they didn't owe money to.

    Equal opportunity housing act is how.(the true source of the housing crisis in my opinion) You don't have to prove income. I got a home loan on a house in 2000 and didn't have to provide one pay stub or tax return. People buying houses to keep up with the Jones and getting in over their heads or just assuming the interest rate won't go up.

    Saw this on the news the other night and I questioned why they made only 1 payment and told Jessica "watch, they only make 50k a year but were approved for a house that costs 2-3 times as much as ours cost." I knew something fishy was going on, why else make one payment then, ta-da!

    bogus appraisal, I'm sure the lender was charging back points and made at least 20k on the loan.

    as for how do you buy a 400k house when you make 46k?
    stated income loan

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Reading yesterdays article it seemed like a couple who was hard on their luck got a break because of a technicality. Now reading this info the whole deal really stinks to high heaven.
