Foreclosure Rescue Operator Belted With $1.36 Million In Bail On Arrest For Allegedly Filing Fraudulent Land Documents In Connection With Racket To Improperly Stall Foreclosures

In Huntington Beach, California, The Orange County Register reports:
  • A Huntington Beach woman was arrested [] in connection with a scheme where money was taken to fraudulently halt home foreclosures.

    Police said that 55-year-old Brandy Taylor was arrested at her Huntington Beach home after a months-long investigation, according to a statement[].

    In January, Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s officials contacted Huntington Beach police investigators regarding a “Foreclosure Rescue” scam that had victims in Santa Barbara County, Alameda County and Orange County.

    “For a monthly fee, the company was suspected of offering to stop the foreclosure process through the use of fraudulent deeds of trust,” according to the statement. The company suspected in the deceptive activity was known as Carrington Investments/The Wellington Group operating out of Huntington Beach.

    The counties issued arrest warrants in Huntington Beach for Taylor on suspicion of filing forged or false documents, said Huntington Beach police Officer Jennifer Marlatt. [... T]he Huntington Beach Police Department Crime Task Force Unit conducted surveillance at Taylor’s home. Once detectives confirmed she was in the home, they arrested her.
