IT NEVER ENDS! How Much Longer Will the Stopa-Federico Crime Family Terrorize Florida Real Estate Investors with Impunity?
How much longer will Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody allow the Stopa-Federico crime family terrorize Florida real estate elderly investors?
You need to take a good long look at this picture of a scam. Why? It could be you, your sister or your mother. Imagine your loved one being ripped off for over $158,000 and crying herself to sleep each night.
In February 2022, 60 year-old Maryland retiree Jessy Joseph was looking to purchase a home in Florida. She wanted to live her golden years in Tampa with her son Austin.
She found the perfect home at 11724 Moffat Avenue, Tampa, FL 33617 which was scheduled to go to foreclosure auction for a starting bid of just $27,300.
Ms. Joseph did her due diligence. She researched the title and didn’t find any mortgages and was very excited to bid on the property. It was the perfect home and a dream come true.
Little did she know this was a Stopa-Federico Crime Family Foreclosure Scam TRAP.
Stephen Khare originally owned the home and the property has an interesting history.
The Stopa-Federico Crime Family Milks More Money From The Mark Stopa Client Scam
Surprise! Surprise! Mark Stopa was involved in the scheme from the very beginning. In June of 2018, Nationstar Mortgage filed foreclosure against Stephen Kare (Hillsborough Case 2018CA-4146). Khare hired hired now disbarred attorney Mark Stopa to defend the foreclosure.
But this was right around the time that Stopa was being investigated for defrauding hundreds of his own clients by the Florida Bar. Stopa knew the heat was on. He knew FDLE had him under investigation He couldn’t steal another client’s deed with so many authorities watching him. Just a few months after this in August 2018, Stopa’s crime family office was raided by agents of the FDLE.
Several months later, the Florida Bar suspended Stopa’s law license. Consequently, they ordered him to withdraw from all his cases.
On October 2, 2018, Stopa filed a motion to withdraw from representing Stephen Khare and was replaced by his close buddy Attorney Patrick Cremeens.
Stopa never forgot about this home though. He wanted it bad. He want to skim the equity. So, Stopa kept in touch with Cremeens about the ongoing status of the case.
The Stopa-Federico Crime Family Make Their Move to Defraud
On April 26, 2019, a foreclosure judgment in the amount of $232,938.49 was entered against Stephen Khare with a sale date set for May 29, 2019.
At this time, Mark Stopa was in the middle of fighting for his law license. Therefore, he worked with Cremeens to delay the foreclosure. At Stopa’s corrupt direction, Cremeens was able to stall the foreclosure an additional 3 years. This gave Stopa the time he needed to setup the scam.
The court eventually reset the sale date to April 13, 2022. This is when Mark Stopa finally made his move. Stopa made contact with Stephen Khare through Cremeens and arranged to purloin the deed to the home at Moffat Ave.
On February 11, 2022, Stopa persuaded Khare to deed the home to Stopa’s defunct New Mexico shell company, Jacaranda LLC.
WHY would Mark Stopa want the deed to a negative equity home that was scheduled to go to foreclosure in less than 2 months?
Could it be to setup a Foreclosure Surplus scam?
Segal & Schuh Jump Into Action
Once the deed was recorded, the Stopa-Federico crime family led by Lee Segal from Segal & Schuh law firm jumped into full gear to setup the scam. A scam that would later ensnare poor Jessy Joseph.
The Stopa-Federico crime family used the same scheme to defraud that we see filed in dozens of other Foreclosure Surplus Fraud cases filed throughout Florida.
Lee Segal recruited corrupt attorney Jake Blanchard to represent another Stopa alter ego plaintiff company “My Own Home LLC.” Segal’s corrupt law partner, Jill Schuh represented Stopa’s Jacaranda LLC.
The Stopa gang pulled off an absolutely stunning display of collusion and fraud at lightning speed. They pulled in shill company “My Own Home LLC”, fabricated a bogus debt of $27,300 and filed a fraud-on-the-court Complaint, Joint Stipulation and Agreed Order of Foreclosure Judgment all on the SAME DAY. (See below).
Does anyone REALLY believe that this was a legitimate debt? Are we expected to believe that Mark Stopa’s defunct Jacaranda LLC incurred over $27,000 debt in just a few days?
Why was the Stopa-Federico Crime Family pushing this case so fast? It’s because Nationstar had a sale date scheduled for April 13, 2022 and they needed to complete the STEAL before they lost the home.
The Stopa-Federico Crime Family filed their bogus debt case on February 15, 2022 to fool the Hillsborough county clerk – 4 DAYS after purloining the Deed from Stephen Khare.
Clueless Judge Michael Bagge-Hernandez signed the Foreclosure Judgment VALIDATING a completely fabricated bogus debt of $27,300 without even reviewing the case.
The Stopa Crew Set A Trap For Investor Jessy Joseph
Real estate investor Jessy Joseph was stepping into a trap on March 17, 2022. Only, she didn’t know it.
When the day came, Jessy Joseph was the high bidder.
She “won” the negative equity home with a high bid of $158,100. Stopa’s My Own Home received the bogus $27,300. Stopa’s other LLC, the now defunct Jacaranda LLC was entitled to collect the fraudulent surplus of $130,800.
Do you see how the Stopa-Federico Crime Family Scam works?
The senior mortgage lender had a scheduled foreclosure sale less than a month away on April 13, 2022 where Jessy Joseph would lose everything.
Joseph did deep research to uncover the Stopa-Federico Crime Family fraud. She also hired an attorney and petitioned the Judge to help her get her money back.
Despite overwhelming evidence of a scheme to defraud the court, clueless Judge Judge Michael Bagge-Hernandez ruled against her. Joseph gave overwhelming evidence of Stopa’s intent to defraud her. She also proved Jacandra was no longer an active company in New Mexico. Therefore, it could not accept fund from the sale.
However, she didn’t give up. She also wrote one last heartbreaking letter to the Judge detailing the fraud. Yet, despite a very detailed presentation, the Judge ruled in favor of the Stopa-Federico crime family thieves.
As a result, Joseph lost her entire life savings.
Over $158,000 GONE! The court disbursed the money to the Stopa-Federico Crime Family. Stopa likely transferred the ill-gotten funds. He transferred it to Adrienne Federico’s personal bank account. This way he could protect the money from a potential FDLE or federal asset seizure.
Wow what a scam! Why rob a bank when you can just manipulate the clerk and clueless county court judge to do the stealing for you.
