sudler-sothebys-logo19 January 2010 ? On January 14th HUD‘s Inspector General Ken Donahue and Commissioner David Stevens issued fifteen subpoenas to banks that had too high of a default rate. FHA is taking this seriously by looking into how banks manage risk and fraud. More audits are yet to come. Banks under scrutiny include:

– Sterling National Mortgage
– Dell Franklin Financial
– D & R Mortgage
– Wester Bank
– Mac-Clair Mortgage
– American Investment Group
– 1st Advantage Mortgage
– American Sterling Bank
– First Tennessee Bank
– Alethes LLC
– Security Atlantic Mortgage
– Pine State Mortgage
– Birmingham Bancorp Mortgage Group
– Alacrity Financial Services
– Assurity Financial Services

The subpoenas do not mean these banks are guilty of anything but the list is out there. However, once on the list the bank looks suspicious.
