Connecticut Woman Faces Sentencing For Bank Fraud

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Naugatuck woman faces sentencing for participating in a scheme to defraud Webster Bank and Bank of America of $6 million.

Susan Curtis is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Bridgeport. She pleaded guilty to bank fraud and tax charges.

Federal authorities say Curtis was working for the property services division of  Webster Bank when she duped it into paying $5 million in fees to two companies she and her husband established.

She also admitted to submitting a false application for a $649,000 mortgage loan she received from Bank of America for a property in East Hampton.

Her husband, Kevin Caffrey, is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to bank fraud and filing a false tax return.
