Six more headed to prison for roles in Miami condo mortgage fraud scheme

Father and son real estate brokers among those sentenced after guilty pleas

A father and son who worked as real estate brokers are among a half-dozen defendants who have been sentenced to prison in recent weeks for their participation in a multi-million dollar mortgage fraud scheme at a luxury apartment complex on Miami’s Brickell Bay Drive.

Prosecutors said the defendants used straw buyers to purchase residential properties at The Jade apartment complex, submitting mortgage loan applications and supporting documents containing false information to fraudulently obtain more than $5.6 million in mortgage proceeds from lenders.
