According to a criminal report filed by the F.B.I. more than 70 properties were involved. James Solongo & Ramara Garrett, would find a property to buy,then represent to the sellers/owners that the property needed renovation. Garrett would recieve, a standard realtor's fee everytime the property was sold & resold. The conspirators, would select an inflated sales price, to submit to the lender. An inflated price, would bring in extra money from the lender that would be used as a down payment, & divided between the conspirators. Sololongo would set up a straw barrower, to meet with broker Chistopher Mancis who would submit false information, the straw barrowers would only give there social security number and name, Mancis would complete the rest of the information.
