A man who confessed to conducting a bankruptcy fraud business has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

A California man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison after pleading guilty to federal bankruptcy fraud charges in February, according to the Sacramento Business Journal.

Charles Jamison, a 30-year-old man from Citrus Heights, was arrested after pushing a plan called "Stop Now" to unknowing customers, which supposedly used bankruptcy to delay foreclosures pending on their homes. The newspaper reported that court documents say Jamison used a fake identity during his business dealings, and falsely promised homeowners that he could help them suspend a trustee sale and save their homes for a fee.

The source said Jamison was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation before being apprehended by authorities.

Bankruptcy fraud is a serious crime that is a key area of focus for the Internal Revenue Service, according to the agency's website. The IRS reports that those convicted of bankruptcy fraud during fiscal year 2010 were sentenced to an average of 31 months in prison.
