Mortgage Fraud Summit (Full Interview)

By Sam Baker, Local Morning Edition Host

Dallas, TX –

It was announced last month as the state's biggest mortgage scam in volume - a family-run operation involving several hundred loans in 4-North Texas counties that cost the FHA mortgage loan program about 4-million dollars. Authorities at several levels worked together to investigate and prosecute that case. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott wants that kind of cooperation to continue. He talked with KERA's Sam Baker about the mortgage fraud summit he's holding today in Austin.
