Riverview man pleads guilty in mortgage case

A Riverview man who worked as a mortgage broker pleaded guilty Friday to charges stemming from false statements on home loan applications, the U.S. Attorney's office said.

Alejandro Matos, 43, faces up to 30 years in prison for conspiracy to commit wire, bank, and mail fraud.

While working for a Tampa company in late 2007, Matos helped prepare and submit a loan application for three property purchases that contained false and fraudulent information about the buyer's income and employment, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. The application for one purchase was submitted to HSBC Mortagage Corp. for the purchase of a house in Tampa. The second application went to Washington Mutual Bank for two purchases at The Arbors condominium complex in Carrollwood, prosecutors said. No sentencing date has been set.

  5. Wing of Channelside Bay Plaza being demolished to make way for Water Street Tampa

    Business

    TAMPA — The developers of Channelside Bay Plaza originally wanted the name to include "Garrison." That would have fit, in a way, because the complex turned out to be fort-like, inwardly focused and unwelcoming.

    Demolition of the southwest wing of Channelside Bay Plaza is underway, with a big chunk of the building expected to come down today.
