Attorney General Seeks Victims in Mortgage Fraud Case

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- A preliminary hearing has been set for a woman accused in a mortgage lending fraud case.

Xochitl Cervantes, 35, is facing several charges, including mortgage lending fraud and embezzlement. Cervantes allegedly made false representations that she was capable of rescuing homeowners who were looking to refinance their mortgages by negotiating loan modifications. Cervantes allegedly collected fees, ranging from $2,000 to $2,500, but never performed services.

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto is looking for additional victims who can provide more information on Cervantes.

 "I encourage victims or anyone with more information regarding this case or any mortgage lending fraud to come forward," said Masto.

Anyone with additional information regarding Xochitl Cervantes, or CSR Servicing is urged to contact the Attorney General's Office Bureau of Consumer Protection Hotline at 702-486-3132 and press "3" to receive instructions on how to submit a complaint.
