Since FY 2008, when the Department of Justice began tracking the category, through the first quarter of FY 2011, just over half of federal mortgage fraud prosecutions -- 1,038 out of a total of 2,015 nationally -- were filed in only ten of the nation's 90-plus districts, according to timely data obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
The Southern District of Florida led the nation with 290 such prosecutions.
For more on the subject, including district-by-district figures on prosecutions, convictions and prison sentences, go to the TRAC report at:
