BALTIMORE- Authorities say a Cambridge, Md., woman on Tuesday pleaded guilty to bank fraud in connection with a scheme in which she and her brother fraudulently obtained mortgage loans in the names of family members, using the proceeds for their own benefit.
 
The guilty plea was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein and Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
 
According to her plea agreement, 59-year-old Jill Dail was a loan settlement processor in the mortgage department at a Salisbury, Md., bank until she was terminated in June 2007, as part of a reduction in the bank's workforce.  Shortly thereafter, Dail was privately hired by the manager of the bank's mortgage department to continue to do the same loan processing work she had performed as an employee of the bank. Court documents show the bank manager paid Dail out of his own funds and gave her full access to the bank premises, computer system and loan files. Dail continued to represent herself as a bank employee in her dealings with title companies and other businesses, court records show. 
 
According to her plea agreement, Jill Dail admitted that beginning before January 2006 through at least August 2009, she and her brother, 49-year-old Jeffrey Scott Dail, also of Cambridge, applied for mortgage loans in the names of family members and used the proceeds of the loans for their personal benefit. Prosecutors said the Dails forged the signature of family members and bank officials on the loan applications, causing the bank to approve the applications and authorize the distribution of the loan proceeds at settlement. Prosecutors said that in each instance, the family members whose identities were used on the loan applications, and whose properties were used as collateral for the loans, had no knowledge of the applications or the loans.
 
Prosecutors said that based on the assurances of Jill Dail, with whom the title company had a well-established business relationship, title company employees notarized the signatures of the family members on the settlement documents and disbursed the loan funds at settlement, as directed by Jill Dail, to Jill Dail herself, to Jeffrey Dail, and to their creditors.  The balance of loan funds still unpaid is approximately $357,150.
 
Jill Dail faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.  U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz scheduled her sentencing for April 3, 2014 at 9:30 a.m.
 
Jeffrey Dail pleaded guilty on Dec. 5, 2013 to his participation in the scheme and faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 21, 2014 at noon.

    The Seaford Eagle Diner was ripped down Tuesday morning so the owners can re-build a new restaurant on site. Owner Serkan Darilmaz says the diner was in such bad shape that renovating it would've come at an astronomical cost.
