Felony Indictment Handed Down for Foreclosure Rescue Scam

Allison Tussey —  September 9, 2010 — 1 Comment

Marisol Perez, 48, Las Vegas, Nevada, was indicted on charges of four felony counts of theft in connection with the operation of We Save Your Home, LLC, a foreclosure rescue business located in Las Vegas.

The Indictment alleges that between July 2008 and May 2009, Perez misled customers into believing that, for a fee ranging from $1350 to $2000, she would guarantee a loan modification or reduction of the principal of her customer’s outstanding mortgage loans. After receiving payment, Perez failed to do any work on behalf of her customers.

The State alleges that Perez materially misrepresented that she would obtain a loan modification for her customers within 45 to 90 days. However, after receiving payment, Perez failed to negotiate with lenders on behalf of her customers and failed to give refunds despite promising to do so.

A warrant has been issued for the Defendant’s arrest.

The indictment is not a determination of guilt or innocence but is just a finding of probable cause that a crime was committed. The Defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

“My Mortgage Fraud Task Force continues to investigate, indict and obtain convictions for mortgage related crimes in Nevada,” said Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. “We want the scammers to know that mortgage and loan modification scams will not be tolerated in our State.”

Anyone who has information regarding this case should contact the Attorney General’s Office at 702-486-3777 in Las Vegas or 775-684-1180 in Carson City, Nevada.

  1. I hate seeing rescue scams and am VERY happy when justice is served. There are so many out there needing help. I have friends that have experienced similar with lawyers. It is amazing how little values some people have.
