Four San Diego Residents Convicted in Loan Fraud

Four residents from the North County area who admitted their roles in a $55 million mortgage fraud conspiracy have received prison sentences.  The four admitted lying and/or providing false documents to lenders in order to receive home loans.

A total of 19 people have been named in the 51-count indictment, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey T. Miller handed down sentences as follows:  Jonathan J. Garcia, who worked at  Giron’s Financial Realty Group in Oceanside received 18 months behind bars; Laneka Chatton, also from Giron’s, received 12 months; Ivan Gil, who worked at Dream Homes and Loans in Vista received 12 months; and Maria Echeverria, who owned AmStar Funding, a mortgage company in Vista, received a sentence of 12 months and one day in prison.
