A guy who ran a $20 million home foreclosure "rescue" scheme will be the beneficiary of a traditional government free housing program. For ten years. Also, he'll have to pay back $2.5 million he made in the "easy credit" scam that cheated people out of their homes in Brooklyn and the Bronx. Titles were transferred to new buyers who got new loans, pocketed the cash and left the original owner facing more debt and eviction. The free housing also comes with a meal plan. [NYDN]
