Mortgage fraud schemes use some form of material misstatement, misrepresentation, or omission relating to a real estate transaction which is relied on by one or more parties to the transaction.

Common mortgage fraud schemes that the FBI and the Secret Service have investigated include:

  • Mortgage kickbacks or "cash back" schemes
  • Bankruptcy or foreclosure rescue schemes
  • Loan modification schemes
  • Illegal property flipping
  • Builder bailout conversion
  • Equity skimming, theft, or stripping schemes
  • Reverse mortgage fraud schemes
  • Mail and wire fraud

Federal agencies investigate mortgage fraud involving industry insiders who have used their inside knowledge to commit fraud. To avenge citizens who allow their "credit" to be used to purchase properties controlled by others. This offense could also include bankers, bank officers, mortgage brokers, loan officers, or other industry professionals.
