You'll also learn how to communicate with a loan officer and tackle issues like late charges, tax reserves, property insurance, foreclosures, and note modification.

We'll use real-life examples to explore common mortgage fraud schemes and the tools they employ. Know the role of "No Doc" loans, silent second mortgages, false documents, and fake comparables in fraud. You'll learn how to recognize illegal flipping, identify straw sellers and buyers, and more.
