The CoreLogic Mortgage Fraud Consortium members' meeting brings together the mortgage industry's leading lenders responsible for the majority of U.S. mortgage originations to discuss emerging mortgage fraud trends and share best practices. Sessions are led by CoreLogic fraud consultants who have hands-on experience at more than 50 financial services fraud operations. Government experts from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justice will discuss current policies and trends. Members will also hear perspectives from invited industry guest speakers representing financial services and verification services companies.

"Since the founding of the CoreLogic Mortgage Fraud Consortium, we have witnessed the benefits of collaborative sharing to mitigate mortgage fraud – lenders are more aware of fraud patterns and, coupled with stricter guidelines, mortgage fraud has continued to decrease," stated Tim Grace, senior vice president, Fraud Analytics, at CoreLogic. "We look forward to the next members meeting and appreciate facilitating on-going industry cooperation of this magnitude. One of the key issues we expect to discuss is the lenders' need for more access, speed, and control of their fraud prevention processes."

CoreLogic hosts the Mortgage Fraud Consortium member meetings four times per year. The Consortium was founded in 2008 and is the only national group of its size that offers complimentary membership and member-driven meeting agendas and data usage policies. Members represent 70 percent of the U.S. mortgage originations market and have agreed to contribute their loan information in exchange for quarterly fraud reporting and analytics, along with the benefits available from their use of CoreLogic consortium-based mortgage fraud products. The Mortgage Fraud Consortium currently houses more than 80 million loan applications and is growing by eight to 10 million applications per year.
