Many of the mortgage fraud busts have happened in South Florida, and specifically in Miami. Some of these busts were frauds which were perpetrated with false loan applications and in other cases involving straw buyers. In some of these cases both mortgage brokers and title agents were picked up in these busts, and many attorneys have even lost their ability to practice law in Florida as a result of the rampant fraud.
