Three statisticians go hunting. They see a deer and the first one
shoots, hitting three feet left of the deer. The second one shoots, hitting three feet right of the deer. The third one leaps up in joy, yelling, “we got him!”
Thanks to Scott Jura for this great joke! Posted on a yahoo appraiser discussion group.
Ex-appraiser sentenced to 6 years for mortgage fraud
Excerpt: A Pittsburgh federal jury convicted Jason Moreno, 33, on five counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy in September 2013.
A former appraiser, Moreno overstated housing values and glossed over problems such as a den of black snakes in one house’s basement so that others in the scheme could obtain loans for more than the properties were worth.
U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer resentenced Moreno on Monday to six years in prison and three years of probation.
Court documents from 1/16. Lots of very interesting details:
