FBI Mortgage Fraud Task Force – Implications for Real Estate Property Appraisers in Florida

The FBI provided insight into the breadth and depth of mortgage fraud crimes perpetrated against the United States and its citizens, Florida being first and foremost on the list. Current mortgage fraud projections, issues, and hot spots in the troubled U.S. economy have enormous implications to the banking industry and real estate property appraisers in particular.

[b]Mid-State Appraisals founder Paul Davis is a trusted and reputable property appraiser[/b] frequently called upon by Central Florida’s banks, homeowners, and real estate investors to assess property values. A builder for over 20 years and also a real estate broker, Paul Davis brings a wealth of knowledge to the table as an appraiser.

A combined effort between banks and real estate property appraisers is needed to adequately identify, prevent, report, and thwart mortgage fraud activity. The FBI’s Financial Crimes Criminal Investigative Division (CID) and Financial Crimes Intelligence Unit are aggressively and cooperatively reporting the latest developments and pertinent data to empower the nationwide mortgage fraud task force.

As mortgage fraud crimes escalate, the burden on federal law enforcement increases. With the anticipated upsurge in mortgage fraud cases, the FBI employed additional strategies to proactively address the crime problem. The FBI works with the Department of Justice (DOJ)-Mortgage Fraud Working Group on a number of mortgage fraud related issues, including the creation and finalization of standard loss valuation criteria associated with mortgage fraud violations, and assisting the banking industry with the construction of a centralized repository of mortgage-related documentation.

The valuation criteria and mortgage related documentation is where real estate property appraisers and their appraisals provided lenders are going to increasingly be monitored and regulated in the near future.

Currently the FBI has mortgage fraud working groups or task forces in 32 field divisions across the country. The FBI divisions stationed in Florida are based out of Miami and Tampa. Moreoever the FBI continues to encourage the use of undercover operations as an effective technique to address mortgage fraud.

The recent stock market crashes across global markets have strongly affirmed, mortgage fraud if not dealt with has the potential to cripple the American economy and all foreign economies closely connected to it. Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) from financial institutions indicate an increase in mortgage fraud. SARs increased 31-percent to 46,717 during Fiscal Year (FY) 2007. The total dollar loss attributed to mortgage fraud is unknown. However, 7 percent of SARs filed during FY 2007 indicated a specific dollar loss, which totaled more than $813 million.

Subprime mortgage issues remain a key factor in influencing mortgage fraud directly and indirectly. The subprime share of outstanding loans has more than a doubled since 2003 putting a greater share of loans at higher risk of failure. Additionally, during 2007 there were more than 2.2 million foreclosure filings reported on approximately 1.29 million properties nationally, up 75 percent from 2006. The declining housing market affects many in the mortgage industry who are paid by commission. The FBI says during declining markets, mortgage fraud perpetrators may take advantage of industry personnel attempting to generate loans to maintain current standards of living.

Many of the key industry personnel often involved are real estate property appraisers valuing the homes and properties prior to bankers signing off on loans.

Data from law enforcement and industry sources identify the states most affected by mortgage fraud during 2007 and indicated that the top 10 mortgage fraud states for 2007 were Florida, Georgia, Michigan, California, Illinois, Ohio, Texas, New York, Colorado, and Minnesota.

The downward trend in the housing market provides an ideal climate for mortgage fraud perpetrators to employ a myriad of schemes suitable to a down market. Several of these schemes have emerged with the potential to spread as the recent rise in foreclosures, depressed housing prices, and decreased demand place pressure on lenders, builders, and home sellers. Emerging and re-emerging schemes for 2007 included builder-bailouts, seller assistance, short sales, foreclosure rescue, and identity thefts exploiting home equity lines of credit.

Fraudulent practices have become dreadfully systemic within the mortgage industry, as unrestrained mortgage fraud has bankrupted some of the best and longtime solid financial institutions. If the FBI fails to quickly regulate, enforce, and imprison fraudulent professionals within the banking and real estate industry, expect to see the dollar tank along with the U.S. economy. After which consumers will only be able to buy gold, Euros, or China’s Yuan to protect their life savings and investments.

Real estate property appraisers therefore may be the last line of defense to maintain accountability and accuracy before straw buyers succeed in excessively borrowing beyond the market value of a property’s worth and thereby jeopardize the security of loans throughout the banking industry.

Real estate property appraisers must like never before show due diligence when representing their fiduciaries the banks and report to legal authorities any manipulative and coercive attempts by lenders and borrowers to adjust property valuations they sign off on in their appraisal reports.

Protect Your Savings, Learn from Foreign Central Banks and the Super Rich

In uncertain economic times as these when U.S. banks, government institutions, and the FDIC itself is nearing bankruptcy… don’t be unwise and bet on big brother to take care of you. Let’s not forget the United States of America is the world’s largest debtor nation with $10 trillion and counting amassing billions in interest daily.

Given America’s troubling foreign policy by which it irritates and alienates many of the nations holding its debt and Treasury bills, it won’t be long before the nations of the world and OPEC say no more and opt for other currencies over the dollar.

Be discerning and diligent to guard your hard earned assets and protect your life savings. Learn from the foreign central banks governing monetary policy of nations and the super rich, who diversify their currency reserves and are increasingly adding their holdings of gold, Euros, and Chinese yuan while dumping dollars.

Foreign Currency Exchange Swap Lines – What Central Banks are Whispering?

In response to continued strains in short-term funding markets, Central Banks across the world have coordinated actions to significantly expand the capacity to provide U.S. dollar liquidity. Central banks publicly commit to continue to work together closely and say they are prepared to take appropriate steps as needed to address funding pressures.

This should serve to drive up the value of the dollar on the short-term (for a month or so) until fear and panic eventually take hold and Central Banks one by one begin dumping dollars.

That being said, there are some short-term possible gains for those who invest in the dollar and substantial long-term gains for those who sell dollars while they are high and opt to invest and protect their savings in strong currencies such as the Euro and Chinese yuan. Of course a safe haven for consumers and investors with less intestinal fortitude would be gold.

The U.S. Federal Reserve announced several initiatives to support financial stability and to maintain a stable flow of credit to the economy during this period of significant strain in global markets.

The Fed commits to continue to adapt these liquidity facilities as necessary and will keep them in place as long as circumstances require.

Actions by the Federal Reserve include:  (1) an increase in the size of the 84-day maturity Term Auction Facility (TAF) auctions to $75 billion per auction from $25 billion beginning with the October 6 auction, (2) two forward TAF auctions totaling $150 billion that will be conducted in November to provide term funding over year-end, and (3) an increase in swap authorization limits with the Bank of Canada, Bank of England, Bank of Japan, Danmarks Nationalbank (National Bank of Denmark), European Central Bank (ECB), Norges Bank (Bank of Norway), Reserve Bank of Australia, Sveriges Riksbank (Bank of Sweden), and Swiss National Bank to a total of $620 billion, from $290 billion previously.

These steps are being undertaken in an attempt to mitigate pressures evident in the term funding markets both in the United States and abroad.  The Federal Reserve’s actions are desiring to reassure financial market participants that financing will be available against good collateral, which they hope will lessen concerns about funding and rollover risk.

84-Day Maturity TAF Auctions
The increase to $75 billion per auction will triple the supply of 84-day maturity credit to $225 billion from $75 billion.  TAF credit at the 28-day maturity will remain at $75 billion.  The total amount of TAF credit available in the 28-day and 84-day auction cycles will double to $300 billion from $150 billion.

Foreign Exchange Swap Lines
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) has authorized a $330 billion expansion of its temporary reciprocal currency arrangements (swap lines).  This increased capacity will be available to provide funding for U.S. dollar liquidity operations by the other central banks.  The FOMC has authorized increases in all of the temporary swap facilities with other central banks.  These larger facilities will now support the provision of U.S. dollar liquidity in amounts of up to $30 billion by the Bank of Canada, $80 billion by the Bank of England, $120 billion by the Bank of Japan, $15 billion by Danmarks Nationalbank, $240 billion by the ECB, $15 billion by the Norges Bank, $30 billion by the Reserve Bank of Australia, $30 billion by the Sveriges Riksbank, and $60 billion by the Swiss National Bank.  As a result of these actions, the total size of outstanding swap lines is $620 billion.

All of the temporary reciprocal swap facilities have been authorized through April 30, 2009.

Dollar funding rates abroad have been elevated relative to dollar funding rates available in the United States, reflecting a structural dollar funding shortfall outside of the United States.  The increase in the amount of foreign exchange swap authorization limits will enable many central banks to increase the amount of dollar funding that they can provide in their home markets.  This should help to improve the distribution of dollar liquidity around the globe. Whether the value of the dollar holds on the long term against inflation and deflation however is highly unlikely.

That being said, there are some short-term possible gains for those who invest in the dollar and substantial long-term gains for those who sell dollars while they are high and opt to invest and protect their savings in strong currencies such as the Euro and Chinese yuan. A more cautious and safe route for consumers and investors is also found in the safe haven of gold.

G7 Finance Ministers and Central Banks Governors Coordinate, Collaborate, and Consolidate

G7 Finance Ministers and Central Banks Governors set to coordinate, collaborate, and consolidate to survive global financial turmoil. U.S. Treasury and Central Bank prepare for global integration and inflation of the dollar as it prints more currency.

 

http://www.bullionvault.com/#paulfdavis

 

http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

 

As U.S. credit markets deathly tighten to an economic standstill, the European Central Bank (ECB) is committed to prevent and thwart any inflation of the Euro. Meanwhile the ECB is showing the U.S. some temporary charity by providing between USD 40 and 50 billion in overnight operations, USD 40 billion in 28-day operations, USD 20 billion in each one of the 84-day operations and USD 20 billion in each one of the forward US dollar operations.

 

Nevertheless the ECB is retaining flexibility to react to changing market conditions to protect itself from U.S. hegemony and economic stupidity.

 

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter blasted President Bush for his foolish economic policies causing $1 trillion indebtedness to China. The atrocious economic policies of the Bush administration has caused the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Profligate spending, massive borrowing and dramatic tax cuts since President George W. Bush took office in 2001 are fully behind the market turmoil and economic crisis.

 

The economic situation is an entrenched problem, which is going to take years to correct what has been done economically. Eight years ago, the United States had a budget surplus, low inflation and a stable, strong economy. However deregulation and withdrawal of supervision on Wall Street has encouraged irresponsibility in the U.S. financial system, enabling banks to borrow 30 times their value.

 

The G-7 have their hands full as they try to help the U.S. economy that has yet to guaranty interbank loans. If a national government does not insure and believe in its own banking system, how can its people have any degree of confidence?

Finance ministers from the world’s top economies posed for pictures and pledged Friday to work together to stabilize global financial markets, but did not provide concrete plans to address the credit chaos sweeping the world.

 

The G-7 agrees that the current situation calls for urgent and exceptional action. Although they commit to continue working together to stabilize financial markets and restore the flow of credit, to support global economic growth, nobody has been transparent enough to tell us how.

 

Paulson emphasized collaboration and coordination, which signals eventual consolidation as Pres. Bush has for the past 8 years given U.S. debt to foreign nations. Paulson himself has previously prepared American citizens in talks about more financial institutions failing.

 

General Motors plummeted to a third of its original value with credit markets freezing up.

The so called assets in the failing mortgage industry are toxic and dafaulted assets at best, which few want.

 

The finance ministers have their work cut out for them. They surely must announce concrete steps by the end of the weekend if they want to soothe the roiling markets. The stock markets throughout the world are not responding to cheap talk and press hype. We need to see real action. Any thing less tells me central banks are conspiring to consolidate and devalue national currencies so as to usher in a new world order.

 

The Dow Jones industrial average fell over 1,874 points, or 18%, in its worst weekly decline ever on both a point and percentage basis. Wall Street lost roughly $2.4 trillion in market value during the week.

 

Markets worldwide fared no better, with every major exchang losing. Black Friday as it was called in Australia caused stock markets to take an 8% nosedive adding to a 42% drop in a year within the Aussie market. The Japanse stocket market has lost 53% this year thus far. Russia’s index has fallen 61% as investors pull out money and flee for cover. The UK’s top companies have fallen 21%.  Germany’s market fell 7% and 28% on the week.

 

There is no containing the deepening global financial crisis. Central Banks and the Federal Reserve coordinated interest rate cuts did not soothe nervous investors.

The Fed lowered its benchmark interest rate by a half-point to 1.5%. The European Central Bank, which had kept rates unchanged as the Fed engaged in a string of rate cuts over the last year, cut its rate by a half-point to 3.75% – its first cut in five years. The Bank of England also cut its rate by a half-point to 4.5%. The Swiss, Canadian and Swedish central banks also made cuts. Yet the Libor rate rose disproportionately eliminating the usefulness of any cuts as indicated in the markets which failed to respond.

 

The Dutch and Belgian governments took over Fortis, before selling pieces of it to BNP Paribas. The British are nationalizing mortgage lender Bradford & Bingley.

And some nations, including Ireland, France and Germany, have said that all bank deposits will be insured by their governments for the time being.

 

Afraid to insure their own bank deposits to the full the United States and United Kingdom are developing plans to inject capital into banks, which would entail acquiring stakes in the institutions.

 

Some speculate the G-7 countries can work through this crisis by dealing with bad assets, recapitalizing banks, and providing much needed liquidity. Other economists predict it will take up to 2 years to fully work through the economic problems created over the past 8 years. Fixing the financial, regulatory, and supervisory system that failed will take time and not be done overnight.

 

Each country, of course, will have to take steps to address its particular problems.

U.S. Treasury Paulson himself mentioned that the press and some markets are naive to think that different countries with different financial systems – and different political systems, different laws – are going to come up with precisely the same policy to deal with the issues.

 

That being said, I am betting on the European Central Bank where China, Russia, Iran, OPEC, Dubai, and other major global financial players are putting their assets and foreign currency reserves. When China who holds $1 trillion in U.S. debt begins to diversify after the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco, look for chaos to surface and devastate U.S. markets and plunge the dollar to the basement.

 

Billionaires George Soros, Warren Buffet, and American hedge fund manager John Paulson are betting against the dollar. I’m putting my money therefore in gold or Euros.

 

Care to join me?

Reform of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac – Homeownership & Equity Protection Act

  1.  

    1. After 12 years of Republican control, the Republicans failed to enact meaningful reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
  2.  

    1. In 1994 the Democratic Congress passed the Home Ownership & Equity Protection Act (HOEPA).
  3. The Truth versus the Republicans on the Regulation of Subprime Mortgages and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

    The Homeownership & Equity Protection Act

    1. That law included a host of consumer protections for high-cost mortgages and specifically required that the Federal Reserve issue rules to stop abusive lending practices.
    1. During the 12 years of Republican control – which included the subprime housing bubble at the heart of our current economic crisis – no regulation was ever enacted under that authority.
    1. Former Fed Chairman Greenspan was asked numerous times to issue rules (including internally by Former Governor Ed Gramlich) but refused on ideological grounds.
    1. Republican ideologues have long thwarted mortgage and consumer protection.
    1. Only after the Democrats took control of the Congress and initiated specific legislative reforms (H.R. 3915) did Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke finally issue regulations under the very authority they have had since 1994.

A massive 777 point drop in Wall Street stocks on September 29, 2008 is sufficient evidence of things to come.

 

If you still are not convinced and like many across America remain nieve trusting “big brother” to take care of you, think again!

 

“Despite the efforts of the Federal Reserve, the Treasury, and other agencies, global financial markets remain under extraordinary stress. Action by the Congress is urgently required to stabilize the situation and avert what otherwise could be very serious consequences for our financial markets and for our economy.”

 

Ben S Bernanke: Economic outlook when giving before the Joint Economic Committee, US Congress, Washington DC, 24 September 2008.

 

 

 

“As one banker famously said last year “As long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance”. Well, if it is the role of the central banker to take away the punch bowl just as the party gets going, perhaps the role of the supervisor is to silence the band so the bankers stop dancing.

 

Investors did not perform their own due diligence. Instead, they relied on the due diligence of originators and packagers, who lacked interest in exercising this due diligence. They also placed undue reliance on the judgments of the credit rating agencies, and the capacity of modern technology and diversification to manage financial risks.

 

What can we draw from this? The combination of excess lending with an obvious failure to adhere to fundamental and sound risk management standards not only produced significant losses in mortgage portfolios; it also tainted an asset type that was key in the broader securitisation and credit distribution process.”

 

Nout Wellink: Responding to uncertainty

Remarks by Dr Nout Wellink, President of the Netherlands Bank and Chairman of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, at the International Conference of Banking Supervisors 2008, Brussels, 24 September 2008.

 

 

 

The United States is currently in the midst of a financial crisis, the backwash of which is sweeping through the global financial system. …The most recent wave of financial turbulence is the worst so far since the original US mortgage crisis broke out.

 

Inflation means that everyone gets less for their money. Oil, electricity and food prices have risen substantially. These goods are an important part of household consumption. …these goods have become more expensive in the world market.”

 

Stefan Ingves: Financial turbulence, monetary policy and inflation

Speech by Mr Stefan Ingves, Governor of the Sveriges Riksbank, to SACO, the Swedish Confederation of Professional Associations, Stockholm, 24 September 2008.

 

 

 

 

“What I was afraid of has occurred.

 

In the USA, the shortcomings of governance in the financial system have been revealed for all to see in the crisis….  To begin with, the Fed was not so well equipped with instruments for the liquidity policy action necessitated by the subprime crisis.”

As I can report from my own experience, but [b]without giving too many secrets away[/b], [i]the Eurosystem has earned a great deal of respect in the international institutions and bodies which are dealing in depth with the financial crisis[/i] and the lessons and implications to be drawn from it.”

 

Hermann Remsperger: Fundamental issues of stabilising the financial system

Keynote speech by Professor Dr Hermann Remsperger, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank, at the conference on “Determinants and implications of the financial crisis” of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management – Bankakademie, HfB, Frankfurt am Main, 17 September 2008.

 

 

 

First, we should further step up our efforts to build a truly integrated, safe and highly competitive European financial market. The tenth anniversary of the ECB one month ago gave us the occasion to take stock of the achievements in European financial integration over the past decade. We were proud to find that significant progress has been achieved and that the introduction of the single currency has acted as a major driving force in this regard. However, as I would like to underline today, [b]further efforts are necessary to make the single financial market a reality.[/b]

 

http://www.bullionvault.com/#paulfdavis

 

http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

 

While financial integration is first and foremost a market-driven process, authorities can play an important supportive role in a number of ways, for instance by acting as catalysts for private sector initiatives and by reducing policy-related obstacles to cross-border finance. The Eurosystem can also provide central banking services that support the financial integration process.

 

[b]Europe is one of the major building blocks of the global economy and, as such, needs to play a very active role in fostering sound financial globalisation.[/b]

 

Responding to the global financial market correction

 

[b]Financial integration is proceeding not only within Europe, but also at the global level.[/b] Financial globalisation enables the international community to share significant benefits in terms of enhanced financial efficiency and economic growth, but it also makes the safeguarding of financial stability a more interdependent endeavour. Effectively coordinated international action aimed at addressing financial system vulnerabilities has therefore become very important, as highlighted during the ongoing financial market correction.

 

The report of the Financial Stability Forum (FSF) on Enhancing Market and Institutional Resilience has been fully endorsed by the international community and provides the main reference point for the necessary improvements.

 

Lastly, closer ongoing cooperation should be pursued not only between supervisors, but also between supervisors and central banks. Such joint work, to be pursued at all levels (nationally, regionally and globally), would in particular aim to enhance the integration of supervisors’ micro-prudential functions and central banks’ macro-prudential functions in the assessment of possible financial risks and vulnerabilities. This would make a significant contribution to raising awareness of emerging financial system imbalances at an earlier stage and devising effectively coordinated public sector action to address them. …increasingly important to ensure a comprehensive and consistent treatment of the respective financial risks.

 

Jean-Claude Trichet: Fostering sound financial globalisation – the role of Europe

Speech by Mr Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the European Central Bank, at the Paris Europlace Financial Forum “The Paris Marketplace Contribution to the Global Economy”, Paris, 2-3 July 2008.

FDIC Over Extension and Bankruptcy – 100 Banks Expected to Fail

Will the FDIC will insure your bank savings account?

Suppose the FDIC like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae goes bankrupt? The FDIC has $48 billion in assets, but insures $3 trillion in deposits. The FDIC projects 100 bank failures costing $800 billion.

Put your money in Euros or gold!

The death of the U.S. dollar is imminent. Before the greenback has its final heart attack, get ahead of the next catastrophe on Wall Street.

http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

Don’t be deceived by the lying media owned by multi-national corporations. Wall Street insiders will paint a rosy picture while they tycoons walk away with the loot. Awake and take immediate action before your savings disappears overnight.
http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

Your bank accounts are insured unless there is a banking crisis. Then you must be prepared for the worst.

The greatest threat is a gridlock in the payments system – like many consumers face paying their own monthly debts. When bank A cannot pay bank B at the end of the day because bank C has not paid bank A…defaults within the banking industry, leading to corporate bankruptcies occur.

How long would your local ATM have money inside under this scenario? Not long I suspect as is the case with Washington Mutual when consumers made a run on the bank recently as it neared bankruptcy before being bought by J.P. Morgan at the last minute.

Such a national catastrophe came close in the summer of 1998, when the hedge fund, Long Term Capital Management, almost went bankrupt. The New York Federal Reserve Bank intervened.

Times of intense uncertainty should not take you unawares. Be prepared and protect your savings and investments by putting them in Euros or gold lest they vanish overnight.
