Dorie DiMarca, 52, Andover, Massachusetts, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison after pleading guilty to two counts of wire fraud concerning real estate appraisal services DiMarca had performed. DiMarca was also sentenced to three years of supervised release which will begin after she is released from prison. During the term of her supervised release, DiMarca‘s behavior will be monitored by the United States Probation and Pretrial Services Office.
DiMarca provided appraisal services to two mortgage brokerage companies located in New Hampshire – New England Regional Mortgage and First Call Mortgage. DiMarca admitted that she falsely represented herself as a licensed appraiser when she was not licensed and had no authority to provide real estate appraisals. There were at least 30 properties for which DiMarca provided a purportedly legitimate appraisal, generating approximately $12,000 in appraisal fees.
United States Attorney for the District of New Hampshire John P. Kacavas, FBI Special Agent in Charge Warren T. Bamford, and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Inspector General Special Agent in Charge Diane Dechellis today announced the sentencing.
The case was investigated by the FBI and the Office of Inspector General for HUD.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Don Feith.
