Long Beach Mortgage Loan Coordinator Pleads Guilty

An employee of a Washington Mutual subprime lending subsidiary has pleaded guilty to lying under oath regarding testimony he gave before a federal Grand Jury investigating fraudulent mortgage loans issued by that subsidary.

John Ngo, 27, Dublin, California, will be sentenced by US District Court Judge William B. Shubb in April 2008 after admitting his false testimony and agreeing to cooperate with the ongoing investigation.

Ngo worked as a senior loan coordinator at Long Beach Mortgage from September 2001 through May 2006, according to Assistant United States Attorneys Benjamin B. Wagner and Courtney J. Linn, who prosecuted the case. Ngo’s job duties included verifying loan application information submitted by prospective borrowers.

At the Grand Jury hearing in September 2007, Ngo falsely testified under oath that he had not received money from William Bridges, a mortgage broker, when in fact, he had accepted more than $100,000 from Bridges. The monies received were “payment” for Ngo altering loan documentation submitted by borrowers in order to ensure that the borrowers were granted loans. In addition, Ngo took money from Long Beach Mortgage sales representatives to fund loans that he and other employees altered in order to secure the funding.
