Are There Any Classes on Mortgage Fraud?


My name is Scott Kelly and I am the President of GREFPAC.  We often receive inquiries regarding classes on Mortgage Fraud. 

My first inclination is to refer you to what GREFPAC will be offering.  We plan to have a one-hour webinar that will focus on the upcoming change in government and potential implication on regulations and anti-fraud efforts.  We will be planning other webinars on various topics throughout the year. 

GREFPAC also offers an Annual Fraud Conference. The next one, our 13th, will be March 7, 2017 at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

There will be individuals that will speak to Ethics, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fraud trends, FHA, and the FBI. Our keynote is Rachel Dollar, Editor of Mortgage Fraud Blog, who is very well known and respected in the industry. We will also have an individual who was convicted of mortgage fraud talk about his experience – how he rationalized the actions and how they snowballed out of control.  The Conference is an all-day event and only costs $75.00 ($65.00 for early registration).  

There are other Mortgage Fraud classes and conferences available through the Mortgage Bankers Association (mbaa.org).  Some should be available online and some are held out-of-state.  Most of the classes are in the $100 range, and their conferences generally run $750 per person or more. 

Information about mortgage fraud is also available on websites such as corelogic.com, Fanniemae.com, freddiemac.com, and hud.gov.  Additionally, there is information and groups that you may join on LinkedIn. 

It is recommended that you become a member of GREFPAC. The membership is free, and you will receive articles and information on recent happenings in the mortgage fraud arena.
