LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A former tax preparer from Downey was handed a two-year federal prison sentence today for his role in a mortgage fraud scheme that preyed on Latino homeowners by secretly taking title to their properties and draining the equity from their homes. Pablo Araque, 41, was also ordered by U.S. District Judge S. James Otero to pay restitution of $1 million.

Araque pleaded guilty in January to federal identity theft and mail fraud charges stemming from the scam in which homeowners' properties were sold, usually without their knowledge, to third-party straw buyers.

Loans in the straw buyers' names were taken out in connection with the supposed purchases. Falsified employment and income records -- sold to co-conspirators by Araque -- for bogus borrowers were used to ensure that the loans were approved, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Bowman.

Lenders ultimately suffered more than $1 million in losses as a result of loans they funded by relying partly on phony documents provided by Araque, Bowman said.

Since 2008, Los Angeles has had more mortgage fraud reports than any other city in the nation, making it the ``national epicenter of mortgage fraud,'' the prosecutor wrote in court papers.

Co-defendant Juan Rangel, 48, was sentenced last year to 22 years behind bars for running both the foreclosure fraud and a separate Ponzi scheme that took in at least $30 million from over 500 victims.

Javier Juanchi, a third defendant in the mortgage fraud, is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 24.

Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

This interaction of PDC-109 with the sperm cell membrane results in an efflux of cholesterol and choline phospholipids, that appears to be important for capacitation. The main changes in spermatozoa that occur during epididymal maturation are the ability to move, recognize and bind to the ZP, and to fuse with the plasma membrane of the oocyte..

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
