TWO former salesmen, who concocted a scheme to obtain hundreds of thousands of pounds through fraudulent mortgages, have been jailed.

Ejaz Ul Hassan and Nadeem Ghani produced false wage slips to enable Ul Hassan to purchase four houses worth a total of £425,000, Bradford Crown Court was told yesterday.

The court heard Ul Hassan, 33, of Dewhurst Road, Fartown, had met Ghani, 30, of Bradford, while working as salesmen for a glazing firm.

Ul Hassan had wanted to become a landlord but had been unable to obtain mortgages.

The court heard that in 2007 Ul Hassan and Ghani, who had just qualified as a mortgage adviser, produced false wage slips to obtain mortgages on three houses in Huddersfield and one in Halifax.
