Marni Belkin, an attorney who ran Fortune Title Services in Boca Raton,
was charged last month with one count of mail fraud after allegedly
selling a home to another participant in a wide-ranging real estate
scam that involved dozens of properties in Palm Beach County. She was
charged with using a false loan application after selling a Lake Worth
home to convicted scammer Ralph Michel.
Belkin closed about 20 deals with Michel and Berry Louidort, named as
the masterminds of the scam. Mortgage broker Lauren Jasky was sentenced Thursday for her role in the ring.
