A 55-year-old Huntington Beach woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with what authorities are calling a “foreclosure rescue scam.” Brandy Taylor was taken into custody at her
home by police and booked into the Huntington Beach jail with a bail of $1,360,000.
According to the HBPD, Taylor was involved with a firm called Carrington Investments/The Wellington Group located in the city that allegedly used fraudulent deeds of trust to stop the foreclosure process.
Investigators from Santa Barbara County, Alameda County, Orange County and Huntington Beach worked on the investigation that led to Taylor’s arrest.
