Mark Savarnsky accused of scamming Hempstead couple out of mortgage money

A Hempstead couple that was about to lose their home was duped by a supposed 'mortgage modification expert,' according to police. 



Police say Mark Savransky, of Dix Hills, convinced the Hempstead couple he would help them apply for a modified mortgage loan to slow their payments.



According to the couple, he kept more than $17,000 that was supposed to pay their loan.



Savransky was arrested yesterday as he allegedly went to collect another payment.



Anyone who thinks they may also be a victim can call police at 516-573-6354.
