By Bay City News Service A woman who scammed eight people out of more than $120,000 in a foreclosure rescue scheme has been sentenced to serve years in state prison, according to the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. Blanca Sanchez, also known as Blanca Maciel, preyed upon struggling homeowners in the foreclosure scheme, and had been convicted by a jury in late September of 13 felonies, the district attorney’s office said.
Sanchez will serve three years and four months in prison for her crimes. She will also have to make restitution to the victims. Sanchez focused her scheme on eight Hispanics, posing as a professional trying to help save them from foreclosure, according to the district attorney’s office. All but one of the victims lost their home to foreclosure.
