Florida Bar Inaction Is Creating Mark Stopa Copycat Fraud

Florida Bar Inaction Is Creating A Breeding Ground Of Criminal Attorneys Pulling Mark Stopa CopyCat Scams

Florida Bar inaction is making Florida a breeding ground for unscrupulous lawyers. The pandemic of criminal lawyers is at an all-time high and it’s only getting worse.

Thousands of borderline “copycat” attorneys all over Florida are paying very close attention to the millions of dollars disbarred attorney Mark Stopa is stealing through his bogus foreclosure surplus scams. 

Yet, despite overwhelming evidence, Mark Stopa and his crime family attorneys have not been indicted. As a result, this is causing gray hat attorneys all over Florida to think they can get away with the same crimes.   

So now, every two-bit huckster lawyer in Florida wants in on the Stopa fraud action.

Thanks for nothing, Florida Bar! Aren’t you supposed to protect the public from your corrupt members?

These shyster lawyers see how the Florida Bar did NOTHING. That’s right! They did nothing to stop Stopa and his co-conspirators at Segal & Schuh Law Group.

They even see how Stopa inexplicably won an appeal in the 2nd DCA on his scam. In that deal, Stopa stole over $97,000.

Stopa Steals $97,000 through Foreclosure Surplus Appeal

In this fraud, Stopa already owned the home and was foreclosing himself. He did this to trick auction buyers into bidding on his negative equity property.

Stopa was assisted in the scam by unscrupulous family “attorneys”  Christopher Hixson and Darleen Depoalo. These two attorneys ultimately deceived an innocent auction buyer into bidding $97,000 on his foreclosure surplus negative equity trap.

Consequently, the bidder soon discovered the fraud. He then hired former Prosecutor Sami Thalji. Thalji then petitioned the Judge to vacate the fraudulent sale. The bidder also asked for his stolen money returned and the Judge agreed.

You would think that would end the matter. Yet, Stopa being the brazen criminal he is had his enforcer Hixson file an appeal to get his stolen surplus funds back.  In an appeal written by Stopa, Hixson argued the Judge erred in vacating the sale.

Surprisingly, The 2nd DCA Backs Stopa’s Scam

Unfortunately, the 2nd DCA agreed with Stopa.

Despite the well settled doctrine that fraud vitiates everything – including judgments, the eunuchs on the 2nd DCA actually ruled the Judge did not have the power to vacate the sale even in the case of blatant fraud on the court by Mark Stopa.  They ordered the bidder has to give the stolen funds back to Mark Stopa.

However, in another strange twist of fate, the 2nd DCA could not legally compel the bidder to give Stopa back the $97,000. Why? The 2nd DCA had no jurisdiction over the bidder who lived in Massachusetts. Naturally, Stopa is up in arms! As a result, the lying thief Stopa needs that money to pay the past due mortgage on his stolen Jayne Carusso home.

Let’s see how the courts in Massachusetts deal with Stopa’s courtroom shenanigans and courtroom deceptions. 

It is just unbelievable.   You can’t make this stuff up folks.

As the Florida Bar continues to do nothing, Mark Stopa and his crime family are running the largest RICO foreclosure surplus scam in the State of Florida.

Now, they are even CREATING CASE LAW to support their scams.


THIS is what countless poverty stricken attorneys all over Florida are watching very closely while the Florida Bar does nothing to stop the frauds on the court.

In order to stop crime, you must let the public see the JUSTICE.      

Mark Stopa and his crime family attorneys must be punished to set an example for any other wayward attorneys who are even thinking about filing fraud on the court scams to steal from the public. 

We do have some BREAKING GOOD NEWS.   

A source close to the Florida Bar recently confirmed off the record that there is a “wide ranging” investigation with law enforcement of Mark Stopa. The investigation also includes several other parties.  The tipster also stated that the reason it is taking so long to bring down the Stopa Federico crime family is the sheer scale of the investigation. The more they investigate, the more crimes and bad actors they uncover. Rumor is also they may also be looking at a few corrupt Judges that were apparently caught helping Mark Stopa perpetrate his crimes.

Here is a complete list of the corrupt crime family attorneys that assisted Mark Stopa and his mobster mom wife Adrienne Federico run the largest RICO foreclosure surplus fraud scam in the State of Florida.
