Woman Jailed for Reverse Mortgage Scheme

Allison Tussey —  August 23, 2013 — 2 Comments

Yesenia Pouparina, aka Yesenia Campos, 42, Miami, Florida, a title agent and former mortgage broker, was sentenced for her role in a reverse mortgage loan fraud scheme.

The defendant was sentenced to 46 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay $207,810 in restitution. Pouparina was convicted in February 2013 of four counts of wire fraud and one count of mail fraud.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, Pouparina, a licensed title agent in the state of Florida, sought to obtain a reverse mortgage loan worth more than $400,000 on her own property in the name of her mother, an individual who failed to meet the requirements of the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program. She submitted a false loan application and doctored records in support of that application, misrepresenting her mother’s eligibility to participate in the program.

Pouparina acted as the title agent for the loan and disbursed the loan proceeds directly to her own personal bank accounts. Pouparina also enriched herself by collecting fees generated by the loan, and further profited by using the loan proceeds in connection with her business as a hard-money lender in other mortgage deals.

Following Pouparina’s conviction on the fraud counts, the jury also found three bank accounts controlled by the defendant, which were seized by the government during the course of the investigation.

U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer of the Southern District of Florida, Acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, and Special Agent in Charge Lester Fernandez of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Inspector General (HUD-OIG) made the announcement after sentencing by Senior Judge Richard W. Goldberg, sitting by designation in the Southern District of Florida.

This case was investigated by HUD-OIG. Trial Attorney Sandra L. Moser of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section prosecuted the case with assistance from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida.

  1. fraudulant & predatory loan. owner of homeland mortgage, vicki kennison has stolen from many victims in U.S.A.
    I am seeking help or advice with my multiple lawsuits. I need a lawyer, legal aid, paralegal, or student. Any help from: government agencies, law enforcement; anyone dealing in: fraudulent, predatory loan, mortgage & foreclosure fraud, criminal activity, business malpractice, harassment. I need a Robin Hood. Help the right & unjustly treated. Please email or, call # 352-403-8213, alt. 727-723-4226. Thank you. Get the word out now, before this private lender keeps victimizing more Tampa area resident. Homeland Mortgage Co., @ 6804 N. Armenia Ave. Tampa, FL. She has defrauded many. Someone needs to help stop her. Need a local Robin Hood to expose her. I have criminal evidence. She forged notary signatures. This lender purposely preyed on me with a hard equity loan. She made my mom sign off on the title. She refused my pymts, which allowed her to foreclose. She took advantage of me because she knew that I have a brain tumor, Hyperprolactinemia, fibromyalgia, & a bad heart. She knew that my fiancé had just taken his life/suicide. She knew that the grandparents & State had just taken my son because of false allegations by the grandparents. If someone would investigate my case, they would find even more fraud. The reason that I sought this mortgage initially was to have funds to fight for custody of my son. His dad is deceased, having taken his life, in 2002. I lost my sons father, my son, and now, soon my home. I am on disability, and getting SSI. I am barely able to afford my bankruptcy home pymts. I am sure that foreclosure will, resume. My family and I will be homeless. I am disabled, my mother, who is elderly, is disabled; I have children, three grandchildren, & one baby. We will all be homeless. Case # 8, is against Ticktin law group. They did not inform me of the trial nor sale date. (I have documented evidence to this). I lost my trial, & had to get the sale reversed, myself. I need anyone’s help, advice. Multiple courts, are scheduling my cases for hearings. I have a hearing scheduled, in Lakeland appeals court. (Mortgage/foreclosure). Bankruptcy court (Tampa). Hearing is scheduled for Sept. 4, 2013. Hearing to dismiss case, & object to creditor’s claim. I am now in my third case of bankruptcy. Last year, my lender managed to convince the trustee to double my pymts. She is claiming that I owe money that I have proof that I do not owe. My bankruptcy case was dismissed last year due to this. She forced me into foreclosure, by refusing my pymts (mortgage co, in Tampa, FL). She is a private individual, lender, & not a bank. I have saved many phone calls the lender had made. I have a DVD disk full of abusive, threatening, and harassing phone calls. The lender had called both my family and me. I have done all of the footwork, for you. I have gathered & organized all evidence, in all of these cases. I have pulled up other mortgages/foreclosures, via clerk/court search. I have printed all of these said cases. She has defrauded many others in Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas Counties (FL) and in many other states. She has used five different aliases. I have gathered all of my evidence, against my mortgage lender. I have found fraud, in most of my documents. As well as the fraud in her other victim’s loans. I have highlighted specific FL Statutes she has violated. She has been defrauding people, since 1974. I have pulled up mortgage/foreclosure records on her, via court searches. I have found several instances of fraud, & predatory lending. Evidence in others & my loan/court documents. I have tried contacting government agencies. I have sought help to report her, & look into my case. I have even contacted news channels, etc. Newschannel8, “Stacie”, stated that, “if I ever win lawsuit against her, or gather more victims, she will broadcast my story on TV.” I am even willing to represent myself in court. I would like legal advice, on what to file. I need to gain more knowledge, to represent myself. My entire life is one big legal nightmare. I have been in courts over these cases, since 2003. I have an appeal in Lakeland for foreclosure/mortgage case. I have preliminary hearing with bankruptcy court in Tampa, on Sept. 4, 2013. If interested, please contact Roxanne call, text, or email. Phone # 352-403-8213. Alt. # (727)-723-4226. The lender had posted this rebuttal in reference to my complaint on ripoffreport.com Updates & Rebuttals #1 REBUTTAL Owner of company THERE ARE 2 SIDES TO EVERY STORY AUTHOR: HOMELANDMORTGAGE CORP – (United States of America) SUBMITTED: Thursday, September 13, 2012 I have been in business since 1988, this person that is writing all these untruths is actually hurting herself . I had given her every opportunity to bring her mtg current; I even paid out of my pocket one year of her taxes. I HAVE A LETTER WHICH WAS PRESENTED TO THE COURTS FROM HER STATING WHAT A WONDERFUL PERSON I WAS TO HELP HER TO TRY TO GET HER SON BACK…I do not have any violations against me nor ever have in all my years of business. I have attended FORECLOSURE COURTS WITH HER, i HAVE ALL MY documentation in order….i HAVE ATTENDED MEDIATION (WHICH SHE DID NOT APPEAR FOR AND WASN’T RETURNING HER ATTY’S CALLS BUT WE TRICKED HER AND GOT HER ON THE PHONE FOR THE JUDGE TO QUESTION HER OVER THE TELEPHONE) WE ARE CURRENTLY IN A PENDING FORECLOSURE AND HER MOTHER CALLED ME A WHILE BACK ASKING FOR ME TO MAKE THE LOAN TO HER OTHER DAUGHTER…I DECLINED. If you don’t pay your mortgage how can you expect to stay in your home? I have nothing to hide, the reason her payment has increased is that she has not paid for so long…it is almost over. Personally, the choices we make in life are sometimes the wrong choices and this is how we learn…I personally tried to help her NOT HURT HER BUT some you just can’t help. MY ATTY IS TONY PRIETO AND FEEL FREE TO CALL HIM AS I AM PASSING THIS ON TO HIM AS I HAVE NO HARASSMENT CASES,NO FRAUD,NO PREDATORY LENDING,CASES PENDING OR FILED….I HAVE PASSED ALL MY FEDERAL AND STATE EXAMS, I HAVE BEEN FINGERPRINTED FOR STATE AND FED, I HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED BY THE FED AND STATE FOR MY LICENSE AND I HAVE NO CRIME RECORDS AND I AM IN GOOD STANDING IN MY BUSINESS. This is a response that was posted on this same site to her rebuttal. Not to mention the fact that she states that the judge had tricked me. Isn’t this slander? A JUDGE WOULD NOT PUT THEMSELVES ON THE LINE BY TRICKING SOMEONE ON THE PHONE WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND BASE THEIR DECISION ON THAT INFORMATION! This is a two party state and the judge would only allow a warrant for a wiretap. In addition, if she would trick me in court, wouldn’t she trick me in a mortgage as well? #1 General Comment Kennison is wrong AUTHOR: Geep300 – () SUBMITTED: Sunday, August 25, 2013 Ms. Kennison is WRONG. I have revued the entire file in “Ms. Dennis'” possession. Here are a few of Kennison’s violations: Florida Statutes 494.0016 Books, accounts, and records maintenance examinations by the office.– (1) Each licensee shall maintain, at the principal place of business designated on the license, all books, accounts, records, and documents necessary to determine the licensee’s compliance with ss. 494.001-494.0077.

The office may require books, accounts, and records to be produced and available at a reasonable and convenient location in this state. (3) All books, accounts, records, documents, and receipts for expenses paid by the licensee on behalf of the borrower, including each closing statement signed by a borrower, shall be preserved and kept available for examination by the office for at least 3 years after the date of original entry. (4) The commission may prescribe by rule the minimum information to be shown in the books, accounts, records, and documents of licensees so that such records will enable the office to determine the licensee’s compliance with ss. 494.001-494.0077. History.–ss. 7, 50, Ch. 91-245 s. 4, Ch. 91-429 s. 5, Ch. 99-213 s. 519, Ch. 2003-261. *Ms. Kennison’s attorney, Anthony Prieto Submitted to the court, when subpoenaed, that,” A mortgage file does not exist.” CH. 687.08- PERSON LENDING MONEY TO GIVE BORROWER RECEIPT FOR PAYMENTS; CONTENTS OF RECEIPT; PENALTY FOR VIOLATION. (1) Every Person, Or The Agent, Officer, Or Other Representative Of Any Person, Lending Money In This State Upon Security Shall, Whenever The Borrower Of Such Money Makes A Payment Of Any Money, Either Principal Or Interest, Immediately Upon Such Payment Being Made, Give To The Borrower A Receipt, Dated Of The Date Of Such Payment, Which Receipt Shall State The Amount Paid And For What Such Payment Is Made. If Such Payment Is For Interest On The Sum Borrowed, The Receipt Shall So State. If The Sum So Paid Is To Be Applied To The Payment Of The Principal Sum Borrowed, The Receipt Shall So State. Every Such Receipt Shall Be Duly And Properly Signed By The Person, Or The Agent, Officer, Or Other Representative Of The Person, To Whom Such Money Is Paid. In Lieu Of Providing Such Receipt, A Lender May Furnish To The Borrower An Annual Statement Showing The Amount Of Interest Paid On The Loan During The Previous Year As Well As The Remaining Balance On The Loan; Except That A Simple Receipt Shall Be Given To The Borrower For Each Payment Which Is Made In Cash Or For Any Payment For Which Receipt Is Requested In Writing By The Borrower. (2) Whoever Refuses, Upon Demand, To Give A Receipt Or Statement Complying With The Requirements Of This Section Shall Forfeit The Entire Interest Upon Such Principal Sum To The Borrower. HISTORY.–S. 6, CH. 5960, 1909; RGS 4856; CGL 6943; S. 4, CH. 84-193.] Ms. Kennison never gave “Ms. Dennis” a receipt for ANY payments. Ms. Kennison stated that,” Her (Ms. Dennis) Amortization Schedule and money order stubs are her receipts.” 695.26 Requirements for recording instruments affecting real property.– (1) No instrument by which the title to real property or any interest therein is conveyed, assigned, encumbered, or otherwise disposed of shall be recorded by the clerk of the circuit court unless: (a) The name of each person who executed such instrument is legibly printed, typewritten, or stamped upon such instrument immediately beneath the signature of such person and the post-office address of each such person is legibly printed, typewritten, or stamped upon such instrument; (b) The name and post-office address of the natural person who prepared the instrument or under whose supervision it was prepared are legibly printed, typewritten, or stamped upon such instrument; (c) The name of each witness to the instrument is legibly printed, typewritten, or stamped upon such instrument immediately beneath the signature of such witness; (d) The name of any notary public or other officer authorized to take acknowledgments or proofs whose signature appears upon the instrument is legibly printed, typewritten, or stamped upon such instrument immediately beneath the signature of such notary public or other officer authorized to take acknowledgment or proofs; *On documents concerning “Amounts Due” submitted to the Court during foreclosure proceedings contain Notary signatures that DO NOT MATCH. This is FORGERY. Pursuant to Florida Code 687.0304 Credit agreements.—(2) CREDIT AGREEMENTS TO BE IN WRITING.—A debtor may not maintain an action on a credit agreement unless the agreement is in writing, expresses consideration, sets forth the relevant terms and conditions, and is SIGNED BY THE CREDITOR AND THE DEBTOR. *There are documents that do not contain Ms. Dennis’ signature. In addition, Ms. Kennison hid liens, the fact that “Ms. Dennis” was married (her LEGAL name at the time that she applied for and received the loan was “Roseanne Dennis Frederiksen” Pursuant to 2013 FL Statutes Title XXXIX 679.5031 (1) (d) Subject to subsection (7), if the debtor is an individual to whom this state has issued a driver license that has not expired or to whom the agency of this state that issues driver licenses has issued, in lieu of a driver license, a personal identification card that has not expired, only if the financing statement provides the name of the individual that is indicated on the driver license or personal identification card; 2013 FL Statutes Title XXXIX 679.5031 (7) If this state has issued to an individual more than one driver license or, if none, more than one identification card, of a kind described in paragraph (1)(d), the driver license or identification card, as applicable, that was issued most recently is the one to which paragraph (1)(d) refers.) This makes all documentation associated with any and all contracts, agreements, and liens, including UCC filings, between PETITIONER and CREDITOR invalid and unenforceable, as PETITIONER’s legal name, ROSEANNE DENNIS FREDERIKSEN, does not appear on ANY of the documents associated with the mortgage, and subsequent claim in question. NOTE: A simple search for any financial documents filed with any relevant office under the legal name of PETITIONER at the time of loan origination, nor after, does not produce any results. This is a pre-requisite of verifying the validity of a legally binding contract.) Ms. Kennison falsified income amounts, required that “Ms. Dennis'” mother sign over her home so that Ms. Kennison would have ALL 5 acres AND both homes (valued at the time for $240,000.00) as collateral for a $23,000.00 loan at 11.25 % interest rate for 60 months, when the national average was 6.16% for 180 months. These are just a few of the items at issue in this case. Most notably, when “Ms. Dennis” attempted to settle the account, Ms. Kennison inflated the “pay-off” amount, then attempted to get “Ms. Dennis” to refinance with Martino Mortgages for the amount of $40,000.00 at an interest rate of 12.7% for 180 months. So note to Ms. Kennison, not being caught is not proof that you have not been defrauding people. I am sure, if someone who would investigate my case, would look through my evidence, and mortgage documents, they would find even more fraud than I can find. I have paid so much into this mortgage, and then bankruptcy. She did not even record my pymts. She refused to give my file to my lawyer. He motioned her atty., twice. Please review my case, allow me to send you all of my documents, and disk of phone calls. She had other various people contacting me, bullying me, as well. I have saved everything. My lender is Vicki Lee Kennison. Her company (she owns) is Home-Land Mortgage. Located: 6804 North Armenia Ave. # 5. Tampa, Florida. 33604. The # is 813-933-3883. Her company is also online. I have made several copies of all of my documents. I am able to mail them to you. Along with, the DVD disk of all of the phone calls from her, as well as people she knew. Please, please help. I do not want to lose my home. My family and I will be homeless. I cannot afford to move. I bought this with my grandparents inheritance money left to my mother and me. I only have disability income. I will never ever have the chance to own another home. My credit is ruined due to this. She even admitted to the trustee in court, of harassment, and fraud. She bullied my mom, my daughter. In addition, my tenants who were renting from me. This woman knew that my fiancé took his life & I recently lost my son, before I got mortgage. She knew I wanted mortgage to fight for my son. I was crying, while I was signing the paperwork, in her office. She victimized me, due to my circumstances. Please, please help. This is making my family physically sick. Giving me panic attacks, making my disabilities worse. I have a brain tumor, anxiety disorder, fibromyalgia, and a bad back. This lender knew all of this, as well. My health is declining, due to the stress of this issue. I cannot sleep nor eat. My mom is going to have another heart attack. I just want to save my home, so I have something to leave my daughter, and three grandchildren. This is all that I own, all that is left from my grandparent’s lives. Please, I am begging… Help me. I have lost my grandparents, my son’s dad, my son. In addition, the grandparents pretended to be my friends. I lost my son, due to their having money for a good lawyer. I have not seen my son in 3 years. The grandparents moved, and cannot be found. I am unable to have any more children. I have been in an ongoing nightmare, since 2002, when my fiancé took his life in front of me. My family and I rarely speak, due to all the stress this has put on me. I now live alone. I have worked hard maintaining this house/property. In addition, have worked hard, trying to fight to save my home, and for my son’s case. Yet, I have gotten nowhere, but losing in both cases. I am broke. My car just broke down. A 1986 beat up truck. My house needs many repairs. Not even safe to live in. Please help me. Thank you. I have copied/printed all of my documents/evidence. I have also copied/printed all of the many cases that I found online via court searches. She has been taking homes and defrauding many people, since 1974. There many details that are not listed. Such as her not being my original lender. She did an assignment of mortgage, and did not inform me.
