admin —  September 20, 2012 — 1 Comment

David Young, 37, and Minerva “Chaidez” Young, 38, Las Vegas, Nevada, have been arrested for their involvement in a mortgage lending fraud case involving numerous victims operating under the name My State Processing.

Both David and Minerva Young are charged with four felony counts of mortgage lending fraud, four felony counts of theft, one felony count of multiple transactions involving fraud and deceit in the course of enterprise and occupation, and one felony count of pattern of mortgage lending fraud. 

Per the complaint, from March 2011 to March 2012, the Youngs made false representations that they were capable of rescuing homeowners who were looking to refinance their mortgages by negotiating loan modifications.  They collected up-front fees, in most cases ranging from $2,500 to $3,000, for proposed services never performed or refunds provided.  

Both David and Minerva Young face a 20 year prison sentence.   The preliminary hearing is set for January 14, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. in Las Vegas, Nevada, Justice Court 5.  Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto made the announcement. 

Based upon my office’s investigation there is probable cause to believe that this is another case of mortgage lending fraud,” said Masto. “As always, we encourage those who believe they may be a victim to submit a written complaint.“ 

Anyone with additional information regarding David or Minerva Young, or My State Processing is urged to contact the Attorney General’s Office Bureau of Consumer Protection Hotline at 702-486-3132 and press “3” to receive instructions on how to submit a complaint. 

The case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Mortgage Fraud Unit and is being prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General, Gary Mathews.

One response to Couple Involved in Mortgage Fraud Scam Arrested

  1. Some people may think that this is a crime that should not be punished by serving jail time. No persons were shot, stabbed or hurt in any physical way. It’s just money, right? Wrong is wrong. Doing wrong to others so that you can have better is a horrible way to get ahead. I was taken by this couple and I think that they both deserve jail time. What? But they have a child or children that should not suffer because of the parents mistakes. Our children should not have to eat less,be homeless or w/out clothing because these two people are con artists. Taxpayers dollars? Hold off on filling potholes for a year. I really hope that this couple serve enough time in jail to satisfy all the families that they have caused harm. Alice N. Waters
