Name: Preet Bharara

HOT 100: U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara prosecutes white-collar criminals, and he's very, very good at it. When he's not throwing insider traders in the slammer, Bharara is going after mortgage fraudsters. In April, he put away a multimillion-dollar FHA scammer and sued GFI Mortgage Bankers for violating fair lending laws. He's also found time to get several people indicted -- other suspects pleaded guilty -- in a massive mortgage-modification scam that swindled more than 500 homeowners across the country.
