Arizona AG Uses Civil Lawsuit To Go After Real Estate Operator Accused Of Using False Promises To Dupe Homeowner Into Signing Over Title To House, Stiffing Bank Out Of Mortgage Payments, Then Flipping Property To Multiple Unwitting Buyers, Pocketing Upfront & Monthly Payments While Premises Ended Up Foreclosed

In Tucson, Arizona, KVOA-TV Channel 4 reports:
  • The Arizona Attorney General has filed suit against a Tucson company alleging the company charged homeowners for foreclosure assistance services but did not provide the services.

    According to Arizona AG Mark Brnovich, Sonia Hodgin and Hodgin & Co, LLC charged their clients thousands of dollars for their service.

    In one case, Brnovich said the defendants told a client they would take over the homeowner's mortgage loan obligation and would take over the monthly payments in exchange for the deed on the house.

    Brnovich said the defendants did not take the homeowners off the mortgage loan obligation and did not pay the monthly fee, resulting in the house being foreclosed on.

    The defendants are also accused of selling the same property to multiple victims and charging them a down payment and monthly payment fees. Brnovich said the defendants continued to collect monthly payments from the victims after the house had already been foreclosed on.

    “Arizona homeowners who lost their homes to fake foreclosure schemes should immediately file a complaint with our office,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. "This office will continue to fight for vulnerable homeowners who fall victim to fraudulent foreclosure schemes."

    Brnovich is requesting the defendants pay restitution and a $10,000 fine for each violation of the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act.
