A former loan originator for the U.S. Department of Agriculture is accused by the Department of Justice of accepting bribes to commit loan fraud.

The alleged scheme took place from May 2011 until June 2016, when Barbara Serna Salinas was a loan officer at the USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Uvalde, Texas.

According to U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas, Salinas issued multiple fraudulent loans in her official capacity totaling in excess of $150,000.
