Mortgage scam nets $3 million

Federal investigators are looking into a mortgage scam orchestrated by a former Prior Lake real estate agent, believing it may be part of a larger problem. Jill Lehn is accused of altering more than 60 transactions in the scam. Investigators believe that it is a larger problem than just Lehn, predicting many more arrests.

The Pioneer Press reports that Lehn plans on detailing all her misdeeds in the upcoming issue of Minnesota Realtor, due out March 1.

The two articles take different stances on the story. The Star Tribune reports mostly from the investigators' point of view, whereas the Pioneer Press reports mainly on Lehn.
