Defendants in Mortgage Scam Case Back in Court

Posted: Updated:
Ten people accused of running a foreclosure rescue scam are arguing their case in court.

Five of the defendants were charged in a previous case that was dismissed.

The District Attorney's office said the accused ran a bogus federal land grant company and tricked desperate homeowners into paying up-front fees or signing over their property deeds.

At least 400 San Diego families were fooled by the scam.

The defendants could each face 25 years in prison.
