Today's economy, coupled with the mortgage crisis of 2008, has caused the rates of mortgage fraud to increase greatly. As a result, state and federal government are cracking down on individuals charged with the following types of mortgage fraud:

  • Price inflation / inflated value of home
  • Home equity fraud
  • Fraudulent documentation / false documents
  • Appraiser / appraisal fraud
  • Failure to disclose income
  • Failure to disclose other financial information
  • Identity theft / assuming another person's identity in selling a home
