Fraud Charges Leveled Against "Real Housewives of New Jersey" Couples

Teresa and Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice were charged in a 39-count indictment handed up Monday, July 29, 2013, in Newark, N.J. The two are accused of submitting fraudulent mortgage and other loan applications from 2001 through 2008, a year before their show debuted on Bravo. Prosecutors say they made false claims about their employment status and salaries. When Teresa filed for a mortgage loan of $121,000 in 2001, she falsely claimed she worked as an executive assistant, submitting fake W-2 forms and fake paystubs as part of the ruse, the indictment said.
