The government’s mortgage finance giants could have saved taxpayers billions had they more effectively shared information about a massive fraud case

    This story was covered in the Housing Wire several years ago. FNMA knew of this crime of fraudulent mortgages on the part of TBW, but did not report it to regulatory authorities. A prominent individual in the current White House was part of FNMA's decision to bury reporting this crime and because evil men rule when good men do nothing, Farkas and company were able to continue their fraud costing billions.

    Here we go again for the 1,017th time: we receive yet another article for something that happened financial eons ago. People............ the horse is dead so quit shooting it so your name can show up in some lame story in the MPA Editor. I mean really, it's not like this story is breaking news that cancer has been cured.

    Fannie Mae and Freddie are making the government hundreds of millions in profit right now and the foreclosure rate is less than 1/2 of 1% for the past 2 years. Can we ever move on? This story is curmudgeonly old.
