Four arrested for real estate scam

Four Detroit men will be facing criminal enterprise  charges stemming from a fraud investigation at a Port Huron title company. The Port Huron Police Department responded to a fraud complaint at Transnation Title Agency this past Monday. The suspects presented themselves as family members trying to sell a relative’s home. They requested a closing date with the title company in which the fraudulent buyer would present a fake check to buy the house, with the sellers then cashing the title company’s check. The title agency was aware of the scam, as a similar incident occurred at another one of their branches. After closing the transaction on Tuesday, the Port Huron Police Department conducted a traffic stop on the suspect’s vehicle. Four individuals were arrested including 53 year old Gregg Kent Smith, 49 year old Sean Raynard Fowlkes, 37 year old Twoine Gray, and 31 year old Jeffery Prince Moss. They are facing multiple charges each including conspiracy and conducting a criminal enterprise. The suspects are also being investigated for their connection to other similar crimes throughout Michigan. They were arraigned Friday and bond was set at 100-thousand dollars each.
