Nevada ranks No. 2 in attacking mortgage fraud
By Steve Kanigher

A study released last week by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University in New York, which analyzes data from federal agencies, found that the U.S. attorney’s office in Nevada had the nation’s second highest per capita rate of prosecutions for mortgage fraud from October 2007 through last year. The Nevada office, run by U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden, trailed only its counterpart in southern Florida. The study, which looked at the 90 federal judicial districts in the 50 states and Washington, reported Nevada prosecuted 80 people over that period, or 30.3 per 1 million residents. The study also said prosecutors netted 13 convictions so far.
