Woman Accused of Forging Ex's Signature to Get Student Loan

A 26-year-old Chautauqua County woman has been charged with forging a co-signor's signature on a school loan application.

Brandy Nielsen was approved for the $37,000 loan in June of 2006. She made small payment for a while, but recently stopped.

Sallie Mae attempted to collect from the co-signor, Nielsen's ex-boyfriend, who told police she forged his signature on the documents.

With interest and penalties, Nielsen now owes nearly $80,000.
