Rachel Dollar, partner with Smith Dollar PC, Santa Rosa, Calif., said loan fraud schemes run the gamut, from “sovereign citizen” mortgage elimination programs that tell consumers that the banking system cannot legally hold them to their debt, to “quiet title,” in which scammers insist that electronic transfer of a mortgage title through the Mortgage Electronic Recording System (of which MBA is an investor) renders the title worthless.
