Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is asking for help as her office searches for three Las Vegas residents who are wanted for their alleged involvement in a mortgage lending scam.

Las Vegas residents William Chrissikopoulos, 43, Alan Dornhuber, 63 and Lynda Finch-Estrada, 54, were indicted in April 2013 by a Clark County grand jury for allegedly operating a mortgage lending scheme.

"We appreciate the victims who have come forward with their complaints and want to let others know they can still come forward if they believe they are a victim of these individuals or any mortgage fraud case," said Masto. 

"We hope the public will help provide us with more information on the defendant’s whereabouts. My office and I will continue to do all that we can to protect Nevadans," Masto added.  

Defendants operated under the name USFP and promised clients that if a "forensic audit" of their mortgage uncovered one or more Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act violations, clients would be entitled to a legal remedy resulting in the elimination of their mortgage obligation.
