Fallen by the Wayside?
What ever happened to the rumored investigation of the real estate dealings of North Adams' newest slumlord?
The last I heard, several months ago, there was a request to look into the alleged inflated appraisals and refinancing of the properties. It would strike me that local and state officials would be eager to exploit the atmosphere created by the national sub-prime mortgage mess. This particular series of sales and purported subsequent equity fraud would seem to be easy pickings.
