Operation Stolen Dreams - Mortgage Fraud Prosecutions

The catchy title for this latest government initiative was announced today as a "nationwide takedown" and "the largest collective enforcement effort ever brought to bear in confronting mortgage fraud." (see press release here) The press release states:

"Starting on March 1, to date Operation Stolen Dreams has involved 1,215 criminal defendants nationwide, including 485 arrests, who are allegedly responsible for more than $2.3 billion in losses. Additionally, to date the operation has resulted in 191 civil enforcement actions which have resulted in the recovery of more than $147 million."
