A Sacramento Realtor has been charged with eight counts of bank fraud for allegedly submitting fraudulent loan applications for clients nearly a decade ago for eight homes. Gabriela Carter, 43, is being prosecuted for falsely representing her clients and generating fake W-2s and pay stubs for shell companies that didn’t employ her clients. Six of the eight mortgages ended up in foreclosure; Carter was indicted by a federal grand jury and if convicted, she faces a maximum of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

GET BACK IN THOSE BUILDINGS, CARL!
Die hard “Walking Dead” fan? You could own a part of the town where the show was filmed for $680,000. Nine buildings in downtown Grantville, Georgia, which was used as a location during season three of the zombie show, were listed on eBay. Grantville once flourished as a textile town, but struggled after its local cotton mill closed in 1991. That is until the rundown town started to catch the attention of movie crews, and most notably “The Walking Dead.” “Our main industry right now is ‘Walking Dead’ tourists,” said former mayor Jim Sells, who bought the properties from foreclosure during the recession. Interested? As of March 4, there were 1,848 people watching the listing, with only 23 days left to make an offer. See the full article on HousingWire: http://bit.ly/1aY6fhy.
