The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office alleged Wednesday that Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates knowingly passed along inflated bills for work done processing foreclosures.
A prominent foreclosure law firm was charged with defrauding Fannie Mae through a scheme to submit falsely inflated bills to the mortgage servicing companies it worked for, knowing the federal housing authority would ultimately be on the hook through reimbursement payments, the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.
“As alleged in the complaint, for years [Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates] exploited its relationship with Fannie Mae, a government-sponsored entity, for its own financial gain by knowingly causing Fannie Mae to pay artificially inflated costs for foreclosure-related services,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman of the Southern District of New York said in a statement.

The link between immigration and crime exists in the imaginations of Americans, and nowhere else.
This is not the only study showing that immigration does not increase crime. A broad survey released in January examined years of research on the immigrant-crime connection, concluding that an overwhelming majority of studies found either no relationship between the two or a beneficial one, in which immigrant communities bring economic and cultural revitalization to the neighborhoods they join.
