    A disbarred attorney in Miami is accused of defrauding at least four victims of thousands of dollars and leading them to believe he was helping them with a loan modification, officials said.

    Eduardo A. Exposito, 43, was arrested Thursday and faces charges of grand theft, organized scheme to defraud and uttering a forged statement, according to an arrest affidavit.

    The report said Exposito conducted at least four loan modification scams with four different victims from November 2010 to April 2012, stealing about $9,000.

    Exposito would meet with clients under the guise of helping them modify their mortgages and would have them pay for fees and services, Miami-Dade Police said. He would then tell the victims their loans had been modified but when the victims called their lenders, there was no record of the transaction, a release said.
