The process of acquiring a home has always been rife with fraud, and as the mortgage process has further digitized, new opportunities for fraud have emerged. There are two major trends that play a role in the rise of fraud.
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.
As we transition from a refi market to a purchase market, mortgage fraud risk is increasing— and we can help.
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:

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:
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:
