Even though the Attorney General’s office is in charge of investigating fraud in Nevada, the tide of real estate fraud scams have been rising steadily as a by-product of the mortgage crisis and there are only 14 people in Chief Deputy John Kelleher office to pursue all these cases. As such, there are some actions you can take to help investigations. Checking documents beforehand and doing research about your particular case is one step you can take. The Attorney General’s office also encourages anyone who works in the mortgage industry to come talk to them if they are privy to any robo-signing or bogus assignment practices.
