One Down, One To Go: Rebecca Hauck Arrested in Texas; Her Partner In Crime–Matthew Cox–Remains At Large
Chalk one up for the good guys. Rachel Dollar over at MortgageFraudBlog.com reports that the better half of real estate fraud’s very own ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ team has been captured. According to Rachel:
Rebecca Hauck, the alleged co-conspirator of Matthew Cox, was arrested by federal authorities in Texas last week. Cox remains a fugitive. In connection with her arrest, Georgia authorities unsealed a 42 count indictment charging Cox and Hauck with conspiracy to defraud the United States, wire fraud, bank fraud, frauds and swindles, transportation of stolen property, money laundering and fraud with identification documents.
Cox and Hauck are alleged to have perpetrated a mortgage fraud scheme in Tampa, Florida in 2003. Cox and Hauck disappeared and showed up in Atlanta, Georgia where they are alleged to have again engaged in a mortgage fraud scheme and disappeared before being caught. Last year, Cox was almost caught in South Carolina but managed to elude authorities and disappear after obtaining over $1M in mortgage loans from his South Carolina operations. Prior to embarking on the alleged mortgage fraud spree, Cox is rumored to have written a 317 page novel entitled The Associates which details the fraud scheme in which he is alleged to have later engaged.
