Meet Mortgage Modification Con Men



It’s a scam we first exposed in 2009: Con men selling promises of mortgage modifications to thousands of desperate homeowners.  After our series of stories they were finally shut down and convicted of defrauding homeowners of over 11 million dollars.

In Dec 2012 the ringleader, Gary Bobel, was sentenced to 92 months. His co-conspirator Scott Spencer (who was featured in our 2009 story) was sentenced to 30 months. End of story you might assume.  Well get this, Scott has been hard at work – he has started a company called Reputation Impression.  The company says it will improve your online reputation.  A convicted con  artist says he will help you improve your reputation. Yes, the irony of a man in a desperate need of a reputation makeover starts a company to help  you with your own reputation. You cant make this stuff up, it is just too rich. Now the punch line, his reputation company is called a scam by people who hired him.
