A Myrtle Beach woman has pleaded guilty to bank fraud.
During a change of plea hearing in Florence the U.S. Attorney’s office said that 44-year-old Jill Diane Brennan, formerly employed with Bank of America, became acquainted with mortgage brokers who worked for by Dunes Mortgage. Brennan began to certify Bank of America Verification of Deposit forms for Dunes brokers. A Verification of Deposit form certifies that an individual has an account at the bank and has a certain amount of funds in that account. They’re used in support of loan applications. Authorities say Brennan certified the forms sometimes without checking.
All totaled, Brennan certified $1.3 million in loan packages.
District Judge Terry Wooten will impose a sentence later. She faces up to 30 years in prison and a million dollars in fines.
Darin Epps previously pled guilty to related charges.
