Feds: Mafia Affiliates Took Over, Looted $12 Million From Texas Mortgage Company | TPMMuckraker
Law enforcement officials charged 13 people — including an alleged member and another associate of the Lucchese family — on racketeering and related offenses in an alleged scheme to take over and loot the Texas-based FirstPlus Financial Group Inc. (FPFG) through extortion. Ten defendants are already in custody, one is expected to surrender and two are still at large.
I wonder how the FBI was able to distinguish between organized crime and the normal course of business for the mortgage industry. If you made a Venn diagram the two circles would be one on top of the other.
