Topic: Mortgage Fraud and the Assessor / Appraiser
Speaker: Jonathan Biran PA
In February 2009, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland established the Maryland Mortgage Fraud Task Force. Jonathan Biran was the founding member of this task force, which is comprised of more than two dozen Federal, State, local law enforcement, and regulatory agencies. Together they have worked together to combat mortgage fraud. Although fraud has been in the news for more than 20 years, it is still a problem for both the lending industry and the appraisal profession. This session will help Assessors / Appraisers better recognize potential problems utilizing real world examples of fraud cases through out the State of Maryland.
