How Fraud Happens
One of the most common kinds of financial institution fraud involves loan or mortgage application fraud. For example, a bank and mortgage company official may orally encourage individuals and businesses to misrepresent their income and other factors on mortgage applications. In due course when these borrowers don’t make their payments as per terms of agreement, the banks review the applications, seeking for misstatements of income or other misrepresentations of fact. Whenever the banks find some evidence, they will often turn the case over to the feds for legal action. In essence, the banks and mortgage lenders are attempting to use the government as a collection agency, bad loans they encouraged people to take.
