Common Mortgage Fraud Schemes

Mortgage transactions are complex, and provide many opportunities for fraud.

Mortgage transactions are complex. They involve multiple parties, large sums of money, and piles of paperwork. Some mortgage fraud schemes are very sophisticated and designed to undermine the system, but mortgage fraud is commonly caused when:

Loan applicants submit fraudulent documentation.

Borrowers use another person's name and credit history for the loan.

An appraiser, along with the mortgage broker or loan officer, provides unrealistically high appraisal value in order to match a buyer's offer.

In addition to criminal charges, individuals accused of committing mortgage fraud may also be responsible for monetary damages incurred by the lender.

"He kept me informed, kept it real, and most importantly cared. He was always available by cell or at the office. When I was in jail he came to visit at least once every ten days. At first I thought he was too good to be true but in talking to some of his other clients he is the real deal."
