The head of BB&T's Chattanooga commercial banking operations has been charged by federal authorities with making fraudulent loans.
Tracy Brown is set to plead guilty to bank fraud on June 4.
Authorities said Brown "appropriated the identities of three customers and took out fraudulent loans in their names. In October 2012, a customer of BB&T, D.M., went to the Ooltewah branch of BB&T regarding a loan statement that he received in the mail. D.M. advised back in May 2012, he had been contacted by Brown in regard to a loan which Brown said had been opened for a different "D.M." but had his address in error.
