In the most recent Financial Crimes Report to the Public, the FBI states that “the continuing deterioration of the real estate market and the dramatic rise in mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures helped fuel the financial crisis of 2009 and exposed fraudulent practices that were prevalent throughout the mortgage industry.” Compounding the problem, as the FBI notes, is that “a high percentage of mortgage fraud involves collusion by industry insiders, such as appraisers, mortgage brokers, attorneys, loan originators, and other professionals engaged in the industry.”
To help combat this financial plague, fraud examiners must be knowledgeable of the process, players and potential scheme types prevalent in the mortgage environment. This two-day course will help you learn to identify the warning signs of mortgage fraud, and will provide you with practical approaches to preventing, detecting and investigating such schemes. Don’t miss this opportunity to get the best training to fight this growing threat to businesses and the economy.
