Crack investigative reporter David Dayen has been on the mortgage fraud beat from the late oughts. His book, Chain  of Title, recounts the experience of three citizens who pursued their foreclosure cases through the obfuscation and lies that the banks introduced into the American cadastral system. In the process of circumventing the centuries-old system of real estate ownership and transfer of ownership.
