Fraud reports rampant in real estate

As the real estate boom waves pull back from the shore
All the hidden cheats and liars exposed on the ocean floor
Where once the loud distraction of the ocean waters
Now a quieter afternoon opens the sky for government lawyers.

Investors scream foul as their dollars disappear
The schemes, the scams, inflated dreams fog the mirrors.
"But you promised big returns," they want to say in the ringmaster's ear.
But alas, the ringmaster is gone and their cries fall on deaf ears.
