Case No. 1: Countrywide Loan Officer convicted of Mortgage Fraud charges Summary Between January 2005 and December 2007, Paige Kinney, aka Jamie Lee Lawler, a mortgage loan officer for Countrywide Home Loans, played a major role in a mortgage fraud scheme that amounted to $40 million in fraudulent loans and targeted both the company she worked for and other several lenders. The way the scheme would process consisted of gathering straw buyers to purchase the intended properties, in which they did not have any intention to live in or be responsible for the loan payment. Kinney would then obtain mortgage financing for the buyers and properties, by forging and modifying their documents, for which the lenders would attribute loans that exceeded the sales prices of the homes. That excess between sales price and loan amount, called “cash-back” would then be redirected to Kinney’s bank account, and would be used for personal expenses, make mortgage payments, and compensate the “buyers,” among other things.
