Yesterday an appraiser friend was contacted by a detective about an investigation into one of his lender/clients. Apparently this lender was commiting fraud by using his borrowers information to purchase other properties without their knowledge. The detective wanted to know which appraisals were done by my friend. The appraiser had no knowledge of this and did the reports by all OREA and USPAP guidelines. Values were well supported. Are there any legal ramifications for the appraiser? Has anyone else had this happen to them?
