Course Level
Delivered via


Mortgage fraud has been a growing area for fraudsters over the past 30 years because it is a lucrative, though illegal, profit center. Mortgage fraud can be perpetrated against property, individuals, financial institutions and investors. This course will demonstrate how mathematically-based financial forensics examinations and research techniques allow the discovery of problems and provide solutions for victims of mortgage fraud. Using case studies, McDonell will illustrate how mortgage fraud occurs at origination, during the servicing of a loan and when the loan goes into foreclosure.


You Will Learn How To:

Determine how financial forensics can help in mortgage fraud investigations.

Distinguish techniques to identify mortgage fraud schemes.

Recall real estate regulations designed to combat mortgage fraud.

Recognize various mortgage fraud schemes and red flags.
