Law enforcement sources say that a dozen people were arrested after early-morning raids in Brooklyn and Kiryas Joel, an Orange County village with a large Orthodox Jewish community. Three other suspects are still at large.
FBI agents also served several search warrants in the two areas.
Sources say the suspects are charged with several crimes including mortgage fraud welfare fraud, sources say.
The suspects are set to appear in federal court in White Plains later Thursday.
More details of the investigation are expected to be released at a news conference Thursday at the U.S. Attorney's Office in White Plains.
