Felony Counts Filed Against Three Suspects NR19247ml

September 12, 2019

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles
Police Department’s Commercial Crimes Division, White Collar Crimes
Unit, investigation resulted in a total of 53 felony counts filed
against three suspects.

The investigation began when the elderly victim discovered that her
name was forged on property title in July 2016, via a fraudulent
Power of Attorney. This enabled the suspect(s) the ability to
convey or transact on behalf of the victim without her

With a fraudulent power of attorney, the suspect(s) sold the
property to a co-conspirator who purchased the property with funds
obtained from a loan. The money from the fraudulently obtained loan
was sent to the suspects.

Ultimately the investigation revealed the three suspects conspired
to steal money from the victim by benefitting from the fraudulent
Power of Attorney, sale of the property, and fraudulent loan
against the victim’s property.

This was done without the victim’s knowledge or permission. The
suspects were charged with Multiple Counts of 530(A) PC Identity
Theft, 470(A) PC Forgery, 115(A) PC Forged Instrument, 487(A) PC
Grand Theft, and 186.10(A) PC Money Laundering,
