Mortgage Fraud is typically based on a scheme and depending upon if it was your first offense or not, defendants could be looking at anywhere from no jail time to 35 years of incarceration. Fraud crimes charged at the federal level tend to carry lengthy prison sentences as well.

- The Cash Back/Kickback Mortgage Fraud Scheme
