Twin Cities orchestrator of $2M mortgage fraud scheme gets 12 years in prison

Independence man, a onetime licensed mortgage broker, led the scheme from 2007-09.

An Independence man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for directing a mortgage fraud scheme that cost lenders about $2 million, with one loan taken out for a million-dollar penthouse condo in
Bloomington.

Alpha R. Mshihiri, 39, was sentenced Monday in federal court in
Minneapolis after jurors took less than a day's deliberations in February to convict him of bank fraud, wire fraud and mail fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud between 2007 and 2009. His sentence includes five years' supervised release and an order to pay restitution.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Rank called the sentence "significant" and "appropriate."

"It was a fair sentence, given the scope of the scheme and the conduct of the defendant, who was the leader of a criminal organization that recruited a number of other participants and caused harm to numerous victims," Rank said in an interview Tuesday.
Probation would have been punishment enough for Mshihiri, his defense attorney, Rick Mattox, said in court filings. Mshihiri had undergone significant rehabilitation in the years following his crimes.

The onetime licensed mortgage broker and his co-conspirators defrauded lenders of millions of dollars by recruiting straw buyers, falsifying loan applications and other documents and inflating real-estate purchase prices, prosecutors contended during the seven-day trial.

"Every property purchased through the scheme went into foreclosure," the U.S. attorney's office in Minneapolis said in a statement announcing the sentencing. Along with Mshihiri's home in Independence and the Bloomington penthouse, the other properties used in the scheme were a duplex and a single-family home, both in Minneapolis, according to court documents.

As part of the conspiracy, the prosecutors added, straw buyers submitted fraudulent loan applications to mortgage lenders. In some instances, they used stolen identities to fill out loan applications. Mshihiri and the others also created false documents, such as W-2s, pay stubs, driver's licenses and bank statements, which straw buyers submitted to mortgage lenders to obtain financing.

The priciest of the residences in the scheme was the Reflections penthouse, near the Mall of America, which was bought with a loan for nearly $900,000 under the name of Mshihiri's wife in 2007. The sale price topped $1 million.

Another relative was "exploited by the defendant" to act as a straw buyer but ended up bunking "in the basement of someone else's home."

In arguing for a 15-year prison sentence, the prosecution noted in a court filing that the conspiracy "left individual and institutional victims in its wake and foreclosed homes in Twin Cities neighborhoods. Victims spent years trying to undo the damage."

Prior to the country's subprime mortgage crisis, mortgage fraud was seen as an easy way to make money, said Rank, who leads the section of the criminal division that focuses on financial and tax fraud.

"When that all fell apart, the harm to the economy was massive, but more than that the foreclosures that were the result of the mortgage fraud also caused large harm to the communities," he said.

In a counter-filing before sentencing, defense attorney Mattox sought lenience for his client. Mshihiri's involvement was exaggerated, Mattox said, as was the amount of money actually lost.

Mattox went on to highlight Mshihiri's "exemplary life as a legal immigrant to this country of immigrants" before the crimes were committed.
The financial institutions caught up in the scheme included
Wells Fargo, Washington Mutual, JPMorgan Chase, Prime Mortgage and Private Bank, and Citizens State Bank Norwood Young America.

The investigation was conducted by the Internal Revenue Service, the Minnesota Financial Crimes Task Force, the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Inspector General.

WEST Midlands Police is driving home the message that crime does not pay after confiscating £1.4 million from criminals in the past two weeks.
In addition, nearly £100,000 in cash was seized from a car on the M6 in Birmingham, believed to have been intended for criminal use.
Det Chief Insp Simon Wallis, head of the force’s economic crime team, said: “This money has been taken from those who think crime is an easy way to make money.
“It brings West Midlands Police to a total of £15 million seized from criminals in the last 18 months.
“On many of these occasions through financial investigation and the confiscation process we are able to trace monies and give them back to victims. In cases where money is transferred abroad, it still is able to be retrieved. Crime does not pay. We will investigate those involved in criminality to ensure that they do not enjoy their ill gotten gains.”
Among the success stories for the police is the near £900,000 seized from Walsall conman Mponjoli Malakasuka, who had been stealing and exporting high powered luxury cars.
Malakasuka, aged 36, from the Yew Tree estate, was ordered to pay back the money in one month or face an additional four years in jail. He was originally sentenced to three-and-a-half years in July 2008 for conspiracy to steal.
Malakasuka had used a variety of sophisticated methods to steal prestige vehicles which he then exported out of the UK to Tanzania and Kenya. The cars were stolen both through car key burglaries and a variety of identity fraud and fake hire purchase agreements.
The cars included Mercedes Benz S320 CDi and Porsche Cayenne cars. In all over £300,000-worth of vehicles were stolen.
At the time of his arrest police discovered Malakasuka to be living a life of luxury in his four-bed house. At his address were pictures of luxury houses in Tanzania into which officers believed he had invested his fraudulent cash.
The court accepted the houses in Tanzania were proceeds of his criminality. Financial investigators were also able to show thousands of pounds passing through in excess of 70 bank accounts in the UK and Tanzania including one account which alone had £350,000. Det Sgt Jonathan Jones, who led the investigation for the Economic Crime Team, said: “This has been a great investigation, as not only have we stopped fraud and theft, but we have now recovered the profit that this man made from his criminality.”
In a separate case a money launderer from Birmingham was ordered to pay back more than £450,000 of his criminal profit.
Barrington Fulcott, aged 48, from Kingstanding, was told to pay £450,386 at the hearing in Birmingham Crown Court.
He was given six months to return the cash, or face an extra four years in prison. Fulcott was originally sentenced to 42 months in prison in February 2008 in relation to three counts of money laundering.
He had gathered considerable wealth from his criminal activity which had allowed him to purchase five properties in the West Midlands and begin the development of a large home in St Annes, Jamaica.

[h=1]Takoma Park Man Sentenced To 5 Years In Prison For Two Residential Mortgage Fraud Schemes[/h]Used Other Individuals' Identities, False Income and Credit Information
to Induce Lenders to Provide Home Mortgage Loans

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 16, 2014


Greenbelt, Maryland – Chief U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow sentenced Mokorya Cosmas Wambura, age 41, of Takoma Park, Maryland today to five years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiring to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft arising from two separate residential mortgage fraud schemes. Chief Judge Chasanow also ordered Wambura to pay restitution of more than $400,000.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Cary A. Rubenstein of the Housing and Urban Development Office of Inspector General - Office of Investigations; Acting Inspector General Michael P. Stephens of the Federal Housing Finance Agency Office of Inspector General; Special Agent in Charge Kathy Michalko of the United States Secret Service – Washington Field Office; John L. Phillips, Assistant Inspector General for Investigations, U.S. Department of the Treasury - Office of Inspector General; and Special Agent in Charge William Winter of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).


"This investigation demonstrated that through the cooperative investigative efforts with our law enforcement partners, those who commit fraud affecting financial institutions of the United States will be brought to justice," said John L. Phillips, Assistant Inspector General for Investigations, U.S. Department of the Treasury - Office of Inspector General.

According to his plea agreement and court documents, from March 2007 to November 2008, Wambura conspired with real estate agent Tibakweitira and others to unlawfully use the identity of another individual to buy residential property. For example, in June 2008, Wambura used the stolen identity of another person, along with false income statements and credit information, to buy a residence in Hyattsville, Maryland. The conspirators inflated the sales price by creating false documents for repairs and renovations that were never made. After the settlement, the conspirators divided up the cash received for the purported repairs.

During the second fraud scheme from July 2007 to May 2009, co-conspirator Mrisho Mzese sold his residence in Silver Spring, Maryland to Wambura, and attempted to conceal the scheme by using the identity of Wambura's friend and roommate as the purported buyer. Wambura again made false statements about the buyer's assets and income. For example, Wambura listed a joint credit union account held by Wambura and his friend as an asset, which Wambura created without his friend's knowledge. After securing the mortgage and obtaining possession of the residence, Wambura continued to use his friend's stolen identity to become a Section 8 landlord for federally subsidized funds. Wambura received portions of the monthly rent paid by the tenant. Wambura and Mzese also caused $29,186 in government housing program assistance checks, payable to Wambura's friend, to be mailed to Wambura.
As a result of the two conspiracies, Wambura caused between $400,000 and $1 million in losses to federally-insured financial institutions.
Edgar Tibakweitira, a/k/a "Edgar Julian," "Charles Edgar Tibakweitira," and "Edgar Gaudious Tibakweitira," age 37, of Severn, Maryland, previously pleaded guilty to the conspiracy and to aggravated identity theft, and has agreed to forfeit a Range Rover vehicle. Tibakweitira is scheduled to be sentenced on November 3, 2014 at 10:00 am.
Mrisho Mavuruma Mzese, age 39, of Clarksburg, Maryland, was convicted at trial on May 1, 2014 on 11 counts including conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud and aggravated identity theft, based on his participation in the second fraud scheme in which he engaged with Wambura. Mzese's sentencing is scheduled for August 7, 2014 at 2:00 pm.
The Maryland Mortgage Fraud Task Force was established to unify the agencies that regulate and investigate mortgage fraud and promote the early detection, identification, prevention and prosecution of mortgage fraud schemes. This case, as well as other cases brought by members of the Task Force, demonstrates the commitment of law enforcement agencies to protect consumers from fraud and promote the integrity of the credit markets. Information about mortgage fraud prosecutions is available <MortgageFraud>.

Today's announcement is part of efforts underway by President Obama's Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force (FFETF) which was created in November 2009 to wage an aggressive, coordinated and proactive effort to investigate and prosecute financial crimes. With more than 20 federal agencies, 94 U.S. attorneys' offices and state and local partners, it's the broadest coalition of law enforcement, investigatory and regulatory agencies ever assembled to combat fraud. Since its formation, the task force has made great strides in facilitating increased investigation and prosecution of financial crimes; enhancing coordination and cooperation among federal, state and local authorities; addressing discrimination in the lending and financial markets and conducting outreach to the public, victims, financial institutions and other organizations. Over the past three fiscal years, the Justice Department has filed more than 10,000 financial fraud cases against nearly 15,000 defendants including more than 2,700 mortgage fraud defendants. For more information on the task force, visit StopFraud.gov - Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised HUD-OIG, FHFA-OIG, Treasury OIG, U.S. Secret Service and HSI Baltimore for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristi N. O'Malley and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin DiGregory, Investigative Counsel for the Federal Housing Finance Agency Inspector General, who prosecuted the case.
