"Mortgage fraud: Securing the American dream"

June 21, 2010

We hope you saw "Mortgage fraud: Securing the American dream," a guest op-ed Nick co-authored with US Attorney for the District of Oregon Dwight Holton, in Saturday's Oregonian.

"Home ownership is at the heart of the American dream," they write. "Mortgage fraud has stolen that dream from many Oregonians and made it harder to sustain for many more."

Last week, Nick joined Holton, representatives from the FBI, IRS, HUD, and several state organizations to announce recent victories in "Operation Stolen Dreams," the national fight against mortgage fraud. Here in Portland, the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) is working hard to prevent foreclosures. Last year, PHB invested more than $1 million in proven foreclosure prevention programsin the Portland area.
