June 6, 2011

Atlanta, Georgia - On June 3, 2011, an Order to Cease and Desist issued by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance (“Department”) to Jillian J. Sheridan (GDBF# 27456 and NMLS No. 281757), a mortgage loan originator formerly in the employ of American First Financial Services, LLC, in Corryton, Tennessee, became final.

This Order to Cease and Desist was issued after evidence was obtained that Ms. Sheridan purposefully withheld and/or altered information requested by examiners of the Department prior to and during her mortgage loan originator license revocation hearing and made false statements and material misrepresentations to the Department regarding the disposition of collections reflected on her credit report. 

Pursuant to state law, the Department may revoke the license of a mortgage broker or mortgage lender licensed in Georgia that employs an individual against whom a final Order to Cease and Desist for this type of violation has been issued within the preceding five years.
