Buys an inf lated property appraisal report from an unscrupulous property appraiser. 3. Steers an unsophisticated buyer to a crooked mortgage broker, who prepares a fraudulent loan application to obtain a mortgage or deed of trust loan from an unsuspecting lender to finance the purchase of a grossly overpriced property.
