The faster we all help prevent real estate fraud; the sooner all of these costs could be reduced, thus saving homeowners and tax payers money … and people will not be unlawfully evicted from their homes because of the paper work shuffle by the fraudsters at the closing table.
When we believe in the existence of fraud could affect us individually, more will then start taking active steps, every day, to combat against it. It may be an everyday battle, but the longer we fight the stronger we get, and once something becomes a habit the less difficult it is to achieve; and the harder it is to forget.
We can prevent mortgage and real estate fraud one transaction at a time!
