A creative way to get a mortgage.

If you can’t get your own mortgage, hire a husband and get someone else’s! NY Newsday reported on someone who did just that:

“Nassau police arrested a Hempstead woman accused of swindling $30,000 from her ex-husband in a mortgage-fraud scam investigators said she committed so she could scrape by after divorce.

“Police are looking to arrest [her] accomplice, an unidentified man who they say played the role of her ex-husband at the mortgage closing nearly three years ago.”

“Similar schemes have been reported recently on Long Island. According to a lawsuit filed last week, a woman and a man, who posed as her husband, forged mortgage documents in Garden City that netted that woman $50,000.”
