Bellevue man convicted in massive mortgage fraud scheme

A federal jury has convicted a 42-year-old Bellevue man accused in a mortgage fraud scheme, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Monday. Charged in November, Mark Steven Ashmore stood accused of using two companies he owned — Equity Solutions Northwest and Remarkable Properties LLC — and connections in the mortgage industry to conduct the wide-ranging fraud. Late Monday, a U.S. District Court in Seattle convicted Ashmore of conspiracy and three counts of wire fraud following a five day jury trial, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office statement. The jury deliberated about four hours before returning its verdict.
