    Fraud Prevention Track

    It’s official, mortgage fraud is on the rise. Whether spawned by an increase in purchase transactions, or specific regional conditions, lenders need to be proactive if they want to avoid the financial losses associated with fraudulent loans. Experts focus on loan data, which data lenders should be looking at, how they can gather it and how to analyze it to make the adjustments that stop today’s fraud schemes.
