Origination Risk Solutions

div_top-right_alice blue

Leveraging the industry’s only Mortgage Fraud Consortium, composed of over 100 million loan applications from our consortium members, CoreLogic uses this collective intelligence to help our clients identify previously unnoticed patterns and clusters of fraudulent activity—instances that would be invisible to a single lender trying to analyze their own data.

By applying our patented predictive analytics and pattern recognition tools to this vast database of real-world loan data, CoreLogic is able to deliver a highly reliable fraud risk score for each loan so you can focus your limited underwriting resources on just the loans with the highest risks. We help you reduce origination risk before it happens.

What People Say

“LoanSafe is much more in-depth than other fraud reports and gives a clearer picture of what the issue is, and what can be done to verify the issue.”
Anonymous
“Fraudsters thrive in uncertain market conditions, where their activities are harder to detect and separate from legitimate investors who are also attracted to variable markets. With many economists predicting a financial rebound this year, we can expect to see market variability in many regions and likely an increase in fraud as well.”
Ann Regan
Executive, Product Management, CoreLogic
“LoanSafe gives us a one-stop look at all items of importance for customer profile, property profile and industry related items. It’s user friendly and comprehensive.”

How Can We Help You?

As we transition from a refi market to a purchase market, mortgage fraud risk is increasing— and we can help.

The Gold Standard in Fraud Risk Mitigation

Mortgage fraud reports and mitigation solutions are only as good as the data and analytics behind them. CoreLogic draws on the most current, complete and relevant property data available and then applies predictive analytics and patented pattern recognition technology to deliver the LoanSafe Suite of mortgage fraud risk detection tools. LoanSafe Fraud Manager, the suite’s flagship product, is a powerful and intuitive report that can be easily integrated into your existing workflows. LoanSafe Fraud Manager helps protect you against:

  • Income, Identity and Employment Fraud Falsification
  • Falsified Occupancy and Straw Borrowers
  • Undisclosed Real Estate Liabilities
  • Loan Quality Debt Monitoring
  • And more

For those that seek additional collateral review capabilities over and above the fraud-focused property information in LoanSafe Fraud Manager, LoanSafe Risk Manager incorporates the Collateral Risk Score, which risk-ranks the likelihood of foreclosure and severe loss. It also offers additional appraisal review alerts.

Validate Settlement Agent Info to Help Prevent Closing Table Nightmares

Settlement agents help facilitate the closing of the mortgage transaction, and as such, are trusted with large sums of money and sensitive borrower information. Yet, despite the obvious risks, validating a given settlement agent prior to a closing has been difficult. Until now.

CoreLogic’s Settlement Agent Risk Assessment (SARA) provides a simple, systematic solution for vetting your settlement agents. Powered by Secure Insight™ and a database of over 80,000 loan actors, SARA is delivered as part of LoanSafe Fraud Manager, automatically verifying:

  • The identity and background of all settlement agents
  • Agents and company licenses
  • Insurance coverage
  • Data privacy and internal controls
  • Wire and trust account details

Protect Yourself From Multi-Lien Fraud Schemes

Multi-lien or “shotgunning fraud” is an extremely profitable scam that takes advantage of the lag between loan closing and loan recording to solicit multiple loans on a single property. Difficult to detect through traditional methods and extremely profitable for perpetrators, multi-lien cases currently cost about $320,000 per incident on average—and can affect several lenders in a single case.

The risk is real. Since its inception, CoreLogic’s Multi-Closing Alert Program (MCAP) has detected more than 1,200 cases confirmed by lenders as shotgunning fraud attempts. These 1,200 cases represent thousands of MCAP participant loans totaling more than $365 million.

MCAP can help you avoid increasingly elaborate fraud schemes by:

  • Identifying multi-lien fraud attempts before funding your loans
  • Validating your loans against a lender contributed databases that contain about 85% of all equity loans and 60% of first-lien mortgages
  • Collaborating with other participating lenders on fraud prevention best practices during monthly participant calls
