Appraiser Used IDs of Other Appraisers
Four-year sentence handed down to Daniel J. Nichter
Jan. 14, 2012
An Ohio appraiser will spend four years in prison over admittedly using the identities of other appraisers on inflated reports.
The state’s Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing revoked Daniel J. Nichter’s appraisal license in 2008 because he violated legal and professional standards with an inflated appraisal.
But that didn’t stop Nichter from completing another nearly two dozen appraisals using the identities of other appraisers — including one who died during his indictment process.
