Mortgage Fraud Podcast a Success!

My first attempt at running an online talk show / live podcast / talkcast (whatever you want to call it) went pretty smooth.

I talked for 2 hours with Jerome Mayne, an ex mortgage fraud convict who is now an expert, author and speaker on fraudulent behavior. We also took some interesting live questions at the end. Jerome had a lot of good things to say about mortgage fraud and my situation. Click the links below for the audio:
