200 bankers, corporate executives, mortgage modification scammers, real estate developers, brokers, and other defendants investigated by SIGTARP and our law enforcement partners have been convicted of crimes related to TARP.  Of the 200 defendants convicted, 113 have already been sentenced to prison, and others await sentencing.

"As a law enforcement team united against bailout-related crime, we are getting smarter with each case and more efficient at rooting out hidden TARP-related crime, stopping that crime, and bringing accountability and justice to perpetrators. There is much more to come."
