i was approached by a Sr. Investigator from Freddie Mac today

This answer was rated:

i was approached by a Sr. Investigator from Freddie Mac today and informed that I was one of a large party that committed fraud by presenting my former employer with fraudulent pay stubs, bank statements, VOD, VOE. I was informed that if i cooperated i would not be put on a black list with Freddie and could continue to originate loans. If the investigator felt that I was not cooperating than she could deem me an active participant of fraud and have me on a black list than causing any loans that i originate not eligible for purchase by Freddie Mac. I answered everything as truthfully as i remember. The loans in question where Originated where back in 2007. What Legal action should i take. she told me that i didnt need to take any however, i cannot take her word for it. She lied to my receptionist stating that we had an appointment and this was not true and she also lied to my HOA security stating that i was waiting for her. When i got home i found her card on my door and researched as to how she got in gated complex.
At this point yes, you need counsel. You should not speak to the investigator any more without an attorney present. Once you get an attorney they will contact the investigator and inform them you are represented by counsel and from that point forward the investigator can no longer speak to you and they have to go through your attorney or she will be in violation of your Fifth and Sixth Amendment Rights to counsel.

You do not know what information she has, but it is likely that if they have not taken any action against you that they are bluffing trying to get your to flip and confess to something.
