Watch Your Wallets

Pulitzer Prize winner David Jackson is at it again with some top-notch investigative reporting. "How Fraud Became the Nightmare on May St.," co-written with John McCormick, is part of a series Jackson is doing for the Chicago Tribune that looks at how mortgage scams are proliferating around the country, sometimes with the help of street gangs. In addition to hard data, the series shows the toll this fraud has on people and entire neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the Tribune's Web site makes it difficult to view the whole series, but even looking at one of the stories such as this one is well worth the time to see this example of thorough reporting.,1,5901906.story?coll=chi-news-hed
