Audrey Yeboah, an accountant and participant in a nationwide loan origination and kickback scheme, pled guilty to a felony information charging her with wire fraud.

Yeboah admitted participating in the scheme by creating fake W-2 forms, pay stubs, and other records for straw buyers so that her fellow conspirators could collect millions of dollars in kickbacks from fraudulently-obtained mortgage loans. In entering her guilty plea, Yeboah admitted reviewing payment records that showed over $14.5 million in kickbacks were collected from the fraudulent purchase of $100 million in properties.

A sentencing hearing was originally scheduled for February 4, 2012 at 9:00 a.m., but has been rescheduled to May 28, 2013.

United States Attorney Laura E. Duffy announced the guilty plea.
