Adviser Feruza Mettrick has been jailed for five years for trying to defraud lenders out of £3m by stealing the identities of homeowners.
Mettrick rented properties using fake documents and then attempted to obtain mortgages for the properties by pretending to be the real owners, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Leeds Crown Court heard how she managed to obtain a total of £515,900. She was arrested wearing a wig and glasses at a Royal Bank of Scotland in Harrogate in September last year.
The court heard how the potential losses through her failed attempts to obtain funds was around £2.4m.
The FSA register shows Mettrick worked for a firm called Small Investment Solutions, an appointed representative of The Mortgage Times Group, between March 2008 and March 2009.
Prosecutor Nick Worsley says: “This is sophisticated, repeated and professional offending by a defendant adept at using disguise and subterfuge.”
