And before you get too excited Guru, the accusations seem similar to those in the massive Countrywide mortgage fraud in the US, only this is much smaller in scale. Inflated appraisals, shoddy paperwork and verification and voila, a loan. A deflating real estate market can have that effect...what went up, collapsed and the inflated values were exposed. No more foreigners to by overpriced property as the Europeans that were previously speculating left.>
