Providing false or incorrect information on a loan application is mortgage fraud. According to the FBI, mortgage loan fraud is one of the fastest growing forms of white collar crime in the United States. While mortgage fraud comes in a number of different forms, some types are more commonplace than others.
It is important to note that many people who commit mortgage loan fraud or loan modification fraud do so at the urging of a real estate agent hoping to close a deal. If you have any questions or concerns about mortgage fraud, it is a good idea to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney or real estate attorney before making a potentially disastrous mistake.
