Attorney General Bondi's Office and Miami-Dade Police Department Arrest 12 for $16 Million in Mortgage Fraud

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –Attorney General Pam Bondi and Miami-Dade Police Department Director James Loftus today announced that 12 were arrested for their alleged involvement in an extensive mortgage fraud scheme totaling more than $16 million. The defendants arrested were part of a criminal enterprise that submitted fraudulent mortgage loan documents to mortgage companies throughout the South Florida area. The defendants submitted 10 mortgage loan applications that were funded and collectively valued at more than $16 million. The defendants will be prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office of Statewide Prosecution in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

"With our country's housing market in distress, it is imperative that we do everything in our power to eliminate mortgage fraud in our state," said Attorney General Pam Bondi. "I am grateful to the Miami-Dade Police Department for their partnership in cracking down on this fraud and helping restore integrity to Florida's market."

"Today the Miami-Dade Police Department's Mortgage Fraud Task Force has again arrested numerous individuals who conspired in a major mortgage fraud criminal enterprise. These arrests should send a direct message that the MDPD will not tolerate illegal business practices by those individuals who choose to continue to contribute to the downfall of the national, state and local mortgage industry," said James K. Loftus, director of the Miami-Dade Police Department.

Below is the list of defendants and their charges:
  • Carlos Alfonso Ramon Zapata, 47, Miami, Florida; RICO (Racketeering), Conspiracy to RICO, Organized Fraud, and Money Laundering
