A Plum attorney who owned three companies operated a complex mortgage fraud scheme, prosecutors say.

Lisa Gerideau-Williams, 46, pleaded guilty Friday to 16 counts of wire fraud, filing false income tax returns and failing to file income tax returns. U.S. District Judge Gary Lancaster has scheduled her sentencing for June 7.

Gerideau-Williams operated Genesis Home Solutions, a mortgage broker business, and two closing companies Millennium Settlement Services and Professional Settlement Solutions, prosecutors say.

Gerideau-Williams repeatedly used relatives' identities without their permission to finance the “purchase” of a property without recording the deed transfers or the mortgages so she could keep getting loans on the property, prosecutors say. She also took money for real estate-related services that she never performed, prosecutors say.
