Mortgage fraud covers a variety of actions in which a person or organization uses false information in order to gain a benefit. While there is no specific statute outlawing mortgage fraud, it is a common theory underlying a prosecution for bank fraud, wire fraud, and other cases. Mortgage brokers, real estate brokers, appraisers, and real estate lawyers are those most commonly targeted in these investigations and prosecutions.
